Nerd Out in Public at the FREE Lightsaber Battle this Saturday

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

We’re all nerds here, right? The kind of people who would enjoy playing with lightsabers in public on a Saturday night instead of going to a bar with friends or basically, NOT playing with lightsabers in public. Well well well, is Newmindspace putting on the event for us! Back by popular demand, Lightsaber Battle NYC returns to Washington Square Park this Saturday night for all of our regressive behavior needs.

Lightsabers can be reserved in advance for just $5–squee!–then just pick a side of the force and prepare for (pretend) battle. There’s even a giveaway contest for a Jedi Robe happening right here, which would not only make you one of the coolest stick swingers in the Square this weekend but solve the question of what to dress up as for Halloween for life.

FREE Lightsaber Battle NYC
Saturday, Sept. 24th 9-11PM
Washington Square Park (enter at W 4th and Washington Sq East)
[West Village]

Jill is an Ohio native and Boston University graduate who refuses to stop saying "pop" and wearing her Red Sox gear despite being heckled for doing so since moving to Brooklyn. She's been honing her thrifty ways since doing that silly thing people talk about when they ignore reason to follow their hearts and chose a career in the fulfilling but faltering music industry. She earns her beer money as a publicist and writer, and spends her spare time cooking, biking, and trying to decide if she's ready to get a cat.
