The House of Blues at Mandalay Bay has decided to explore its nerdy side with a huge "Star Wars" celebration Saturday, May 4.
For the uninitiated May 4 has unofficially become "Star Wars" Day because "May the 4th be with you."
The event starts at 8 p.m. with a DJ and the original "Star Wars Episode IV" screening on TVs throughout the club.
It wouldn't be a "Star Wars" event without a costume contest. House of Blues prizes including Santana tickets, dinner packages and a future Mandalay Bay room will be given out in general "Star Wars" and Slave Leia competitions.
Themed food and drinks include Millennium Falcon nachos (wonder if you finish them in less than 12 parsecs), Dagobah Swampfish (catfish bites), Yodarita and the Han Shot First Shot.
Guests who are 21 and over can RSVP at may4thbewithyou.eventbrite.com.
The day will be doubly fun since this year it falls on Free Comic Book Day, another nerd favorite.
