Star Wars nerd-dom have in common you ask? Escape, that's what. Whether you dream of zooming through the galaxy in a spaceship or lounging on a breezy tropical island, it's about doing something different and forgetting the drudgery of the 9-to-5 grind. Plus loving both of these cultures means dressing up! Fun! Still, fans of tiki tend to lean toward '60s stylings such as the Barbarella look, while Star Wars is very '70s. The regulars at Star Wars Tiki Brunch will surely make the meld work, though, and after a few cocktails, who really cares anyway? On-theme specials such as the Bantha Milk Punch, Dark Side Piña Colada and Shyriiwook Sour will be served as this intergalactic, rum-guzzler gathering strikes back for summer. Stormtroopers from the Southern California Garrison will be present, DJs including Justin Garrison, Personify, Vickki Acuna and Robot Heart perform live, and food will be provided by East Los Musubi and Presley's Pantry. Hosted by Ray Bowen, who will slay you with his lightsaber if you're not dressed in tiki attire.
