Break out your lightsabers and Yoda impressions, and get ready to drink.
The Downtown Jefferson City Association is hosting a "Star Wars"-themed pub crawl Saturday called Bar Wars. The event, which starts at 6 p.m. Saturday and is only for those ages 21 and older, encourages attendees to get in their best "Star Wars" attire and participate in a scavenger hunt at participating bars. Check in is from 6-8 p.m. at J. Pfenny's, which is where participants can pick up their punch card and a free koozie. It is free to participate.
In order to win, you have to go to each participating bar and get a stamp. However, there also will be four hidden baby Yoda's and finding all four equals a win. Prizes are gift cards from each of the local participating locations.
Participating locations are: J. Pfenny's, Bones in the Alley, Gumbo Bottoms, Spectators, High Street Pub, Big Whiskey's, The Office Bar, BarVino, O'Donoghue's, The Tavern, Sapphire's (located at the top of the DoubleTree Hotel) and Shrunken Head Tropical Lounge, which will set up a mobile bar at The Millbottom.
Trolley rides will be offered free from 7:30-11:30 p.m. along High Street, from Jefferson to Ash streets. According to the event flyer, those participating are also encouraged to post pictures on Instagram using #JCMOBarWars. A special Snapchat filter also will be set up.
