It's almost time for the holiday that (perhaps) only Star Wars fans care about—May 4. As in, May the Fourth (Force) be with you. Get it? Well, if you do, you'll want to plan to make The Whistler your Star Wars fun destination tomorrow night.

On Thursday, May 4, The Whistler will transform itself into the Mos Eisley Cantina. You know, that place from the first Star Wars movie with all the wacky aliens and the bald guys playing future oboes (yes nerds, I know they are Bith).

On this special night, there will be a cantina band in costume and special cocktails. The drinks include the "Blue Milk," just like Luke's Aunt Beru used to serve, except boozier, combining spiced rum, apple brandy, amaro, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg and Angostura bitters. New this year is a Rogue One-inspired drink, the "Jyn and Juice," a twist on a gin and juice made with kiwi and lime juice, lemongrass and honey.

The fun starts at 6 p.m.
