Hello, there, Star Wars fans! “May the Fourth Be With You” is once again upon us, and Las Vegas has numerous celebrations to ring in the day. We’ve rounded up five fantastic local celebrations (both on and off the Las Vegas Strip) perfect for Star Wars lovers so you can party like it’s 9 BBY without making the jump to lightspeed.
May the Fourth Be With You in Las Vegas
Our favorite local treats from Pinkbox Doughnuts are once again getting a makeover exclusively from now through May the Fourth. Enjoy eight specialty treats, including the “Galaxy Pee Weez,” the “Galaxy Ring,” the “Jedi’s Ring,” “Minty I Am,” the “Vegan Space,” and doughnuts modeled after Princess Leia, Chewbacca and the Ewoks. Make sure to get them soon (but don’t order 66 of them).
Emporium Arcade Bar
Emporium Arcade Bar inside AREA15 has ten free tokens for all guests dressed in Star Wars costumes (a great reason to dress up) along with $7 shots of "Spotchka" (a nod to the chief import from the Krill farmers on the planet of Sorgan).
Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer
Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer inside The Venetian Resort has two ways to celebrate May the Fourth. The “Light Classic Shake” is the perfect drink for Jedi Knights with electric blue vanilla and silver and blue sprinkles, while the “Dark Classic Shake” is a Sith Lord’s dream with wild cherry and red and black sprinkles.
Millennium Fandom Bar
With a name like the Millennium Fandom Bar, you know May the Fourth is a pretty big deal. The bar opens at 5 p.m. with no cover, and cosplays, lightsabers and droids are welcome to celebrate all things Star Wars. It’s the perfect time to try out the “BB-8” cocktail and the “Empire’s Empanadas.”
While in Downtown Las Vegas, make a trip to The Nerd (especially if you’re in cosplay). Cosplayers can enjoy 20% off drinks all night like the “Baby Yoda.” Try your hand at some bowling and check out some of the bar’s props and memorabilia.
