Today is “Star Wars Day,” and if the city were not on lockdown “the force” would be popping up all over L.A. with fans donning their favorite sci-fi cosplay at a host of parties and clubs. L.A. is the home of stars and so, it’s not a stretch to say we rule the galaxy when it comes to this fan-driven celebration. Need a reminder? We got it right here. L.A. Weekly has covered two of L.A.’s best Star Wars events annually with words and photos, and since we can’t jam with our fellow Jedi enthusiasts in person — or become holograms like Leia  in A New Hope — flashing back with photos from Das Bunker‘s Star Wars bash and Star Girls Burlesque is the next best thing. Til next year, may the fourth be with you Los Angeles….
