Saturday, May 4th: Gemini & Scorpio’s Cantina at the End of the Universe

Gemini & Scorpio’s Cantina at the End of the Universe
Gowanus, Brooklyn – RSVP for location
9pm-4am
$15 after 12:30pm, $25 before, purchase tix here

edis, Trekkers, Browncoats, Time Lords and Hitchhikers from all corners of the cosmos, follow us to a cantina at the end of the universe. There will be aesthetically pleasing air pressure waves coming at your eardrums, mad scientist concoctions (no synthahol, we promise), and an eclectic crowd of humanoids, demonoids, arachnoids, cephalopoids, androids, and surprisingly many other alienoids. We won’t let any wookies tear your arm off, but don’t mention Miranda, or the seemingly harmless 90-pound brunette wandering around barefoot may suddenly opt for some thrilling heroics, and then you’re on your own. Dress uniforms encouraged, watch out for the replicants, and don’t forget your towel. You can materialize your Tardis right on the dance floor, but we recommend buying your multipass in advance, in case a clone invasion results in massive overcrowding and subsequent destruction of the entire multiverse.

With our special guests: alien monster puppet creature funk band BIG NAZO, coming down from Rhode Island just for this party — for the first time since our Halloween 2010 event. Hungry March Band brings the brass mayhem. New York Jedis do light saber battle on the roof. DJ Reaganomics keeps you dancing after the live bands. Free bubbly 9-10pm. Delicious samples, vending, and Best Costume prize by ZomgNomNomNom, the geekiest dessert shop around: win a giant edible Millennium Falcon or R2-D2.

Costume required, as always. Think Star Wars, Star Trek, HGTTG, Firefly, Doctor Who, Blade Runner, Martians, robots, aliens, androids, giant spider creatures with tentacle faces, orange-haired hot-pants-wearing supreme beings, intergalactic bounty hunters, true-blue-blooded opera singers, shiny creatures of energy in corporeal form, the time-traveling anti-you.
