Free Beer (Ale Asylum Hopalicious) and Munchies (Supreme Pizza, JJ’s Top o The Swamp, Talula’s) start at 8pm till they’re gone, and don’t forget that there’s an extra hour of bar time because of Daylight Savings.

Of course there will be the main Star Wars theme, as I, Darth Rökker (or Darth Diggler as Obi Weiner likes to call me) will host the show, and all costumes will be accepted in to our costume contests. And we’ll have some great prizes from Pinky Glass, Video Game X-Change, Sybaris Suites, Visions VIP Passes, Rock n Glam Salon, Earwax Records, Yahara Bay Distillery and more!

Bands will be Axiom, Sunspot, The Skintones and the Lords of Discipline, and of course, they’re be some kind of Jedi/Sith duel. The event is not affiliated with Lucas Films Limited, it’s just for fun.

Last Crack: Tickets for the Last Crack show on November 14th at Scatz in Middleton are now for sale online at LastCrack.com/tickets and at outlets around Madison. Credit Card orders must be done online, while Cash Only at the outlets: Scatz, Good n Loud West, Fat Pinky Glass on Willy Street, and Video Game X-Change on Atwood.

Adventures With Elizabeth and Nikolai: Elizabeth has arrived at middleschool and what a difference it makes. Once a week she is horseback riding, she is learning violin and has a homeroom. Over the summer she read the entire Twilight series, along with her mom, and they started moving to the ever widening array of Vampire sagas. I think she’s doing the Vampire Diaries or something now. The boys are hard at work defending Star Wars around the house. Happy Halloween.
