The Dark Side is in search of a few good Storm Troopers to invade the French Quarter this Mardi Gras.
A series of quirky call-to-arms (or pitchers, as it would be) ads have been popping up on Craigslist - New Orleans the past few weeks in hopes of organizing a 200 soldier pub crawl during Carnival this year. For $60 bucks, Star Wars fans - or simply fans of combining cosplay with drinking - receive an outfit, blaster, and a credential form for free drinks at sponsoring watering holes along the route.
Darth Vader, the organizer, says he plans to make the pub crawls a monthly event once the 200 person quota is reached.
92 registrants have signed up as of the most recent January 2 post. You can find out more about the event here.
