Phoenix Is Having A Star Wars 'Fest' This Spring With Free Lightsabers
The Force is strong with this one.
If "may the force be with you" is one of your favorite movie lines, then you're in luck. There's a Phoenix Star Wars event coming to town that'll bring out your inner Jedi. It's even encouraged to come dressed up as your favorite character.
Lightsaber Pub Crawl is bringing booze and love of the galaxy far, far away together in Phoenix on Saturday, May 2 from 3:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m.
Severalwill be participating and there is no set order to visit them in. This is to keep wait times for drinks lower and to let you move at your own pace.
The stops are not yet mapped out, but you'll be able to start at the Churchill.
General admission tickets start at $9.99 and include a free koozie, cup, and wristband. VIP tickets start at $19.99 and include free lightsabers and shirts, plus the koozies and cups that come with G.A. tickets.
If you want to go all out, the super pass comes with a double-bladed lightsaber for those who are ready to channel their inner Darth Maul and join the Dark Side.
It's encouraged to get in character for this event; there's no such thing as being too dressed up! As Yoda said, "Do, or do not. There is no try."
Early bird pricing is available for all the tickets until March 21. You can purchase yours here.
You'll receive discounts on booze plus be exempt from cover charges at the bars you'll visit, which makes it a pretty sweet deal.
Check-in at the Churchill runs from 3:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. and that's where you'll receive your wristband and all your intergalactic swag.
There's also a costume contest for the crawl, with prizes of up to $5,000! Up to 250 people will win either cold hard cash or other prizes for being best-dressed.
We know you didn't really need a reason to dress up as your favorite character, but now you could maybe win money if you do it.
This is one event you won't want to miss. Plus, it's an awesome way to celebrate "May the Fourth" a few days early.
If you get hungry while you're out and about, check out some of these must-try. Or snag the "Baby Yoda" cocktail at Lux Central. Because, you know, you kind of have to.
