Where to Celebrate this May the Fourth

Due to a magnificent play on words, May the 4th has become known as Star Wars Day. For those that aren't into the saga, the unofficial holiday has been established simply because May the fourth sounds a lot like "May the force" a phrase heard throughout Star Wars movies referencing The Force. If you don't know what The Force is, we're pretty surprised that you're even reading this article, but we'll let Obi-Wan explain it to you.

So, now that you're up to speed on why you're seeing all of the Star Wars puns and memes today, here are some other fun ways that you can celebrate Star Wars Day! 

Friday evening at 6 p.m. the DIA will be taking a group Star Wars photo. Building up to the opening of their new exhibit “Star Wars™ and the Power of Costume", featuring costumes from the films on display, the DIA is bringing together as many people as possible in their best Star Wars garb for a group photo in front of the DIA. 200 pairs of tickets to the new exhibit will be given away to fans at the photo shoot. The Power of the Costume exhibit opens on May 20th. For more info on the exhibit and the Star Wars Day photo shoot, click here.

Since you will already be all dressed up and Downtown, make sure you head over to the Tangent Gallery which will once again be transformed into Mos Eisley Cantina for Space Dive. This is the fourth year now that the bar has been completely transformed in honor of Star Wars Day and we're not talking about some cheesy decorations. When you walk in, you will feel like you have dived right into the movie. Costumes for this event are mandatory! If you don't already have options to choose from hanging in your closet, here are some last minute costume ideas from Tickets to Space Dive are $20 or $30 for a booth. The cantina will be open Friday, May 4th and Saturday, May 5th from 8 p.m. 'til 2 a.m. For more info, click here.

If you're into Star Wars, but you don't really feel like going all out, you can also head to B. Nektar where they will be releasing their new 2 Year Reserve called Episode 13. Bottles and shirts will be available. There will also be live music from After Ours and Gus GreenLeaf. For more info, click here.

Last, but not least, if you'd rather just stay in today, TBS Network has a Star Wars marathon going on all day long.

We hope you all have an awesome Star Wars Day! May the 4th be with you!
