This year the Red Sox celebrated Star Wars/May the Fourth at Fenway on May 1st because they are out of town on the 4th, but don’t worry there are plenty of other options. Here are four fab places to celebrate Star Wars Day.
In a Pickle With Yoda
Get yourself and your best sweet toothed friends to In a Pickle for breakfast and indulge in a sugared up Yoda treat made in collaboration with Belmont’s Yum Bunnies Cakery. These Yoda Dagobah Swamp extreme pancakes are a stack of three vanilla pancakes stuffed with green cake, topped with buttercream and surrounded in a cotton candy foggy swamp. Yoda hovers above the pancakes. There are only 20 of them so get there early for a Yoda of your own.
Tomorrow only! Limited quantity! Yoda Dagobah Swamp Extreme Pancakes #inapickle #inapicklerestaurant #waltham #walthamma #belmontma #watertownma #newtonma #brandeis #bentleyu #lasell #regiscollege #eeeeeats #nomnom #eeeeeats #foodporn #starwars #yoda #babsoncollege #phantomgourmet
If the thought of spring and May flowers puts a swing in your step then maybe you want to join Boston Central Swing‘s wookie dance.
If you need to dust off your dancing shoes, show up early at 8 pm for the dancing lesson that is included in the price of admission. Then stay for the dancing which includes:
- The Hans Solo Competition (solo jazz and Charleston)
- The Jedi Draw (mix and match partner dance while blindfolded)
Contests are free to enter and contestants are drawn from a hat if entry numbers are high. Admission is $10/$8 for students and seniors.
Symposium of the Star Wars
Head to the Somerville Library main branch for an after hours Star Wars fest. The Star Wars Symposium is for all ages and begins at 6 pm and is limited to 70 attendees. You will encounter a pop up Star Wars museum, trivia games, and more. Participate in a costume contest, character identification and munch on themed snacks.
