May The Fourth Be With You: Our Visit To The Star Wars Themed Scum and Villainy Cantina

First of all, no May the Fourth post this year would be complete without remembering Peter Mayhew, the actor who brought Chewbacca to life. May you rest in peace, Peter. Thank you for your work and for sharing your life with millions of sci-fi geeks all over the world.

You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.
We must be cautious. – Obi Wan (Ben) Kenobi

Ever since I first saw the Facebook page from the Scum and Villainy Cantina in Los Angeles, I was convinced I wanted to go. To my surprise, Sharon was interested in going as well.

When we were planning our Southwest Road Trip and knew we would be visiting Disneyland, we thought a trip to L.A. would be possible. Then we got tickets for Hamilton in L.A. (Note from Sharon: 5th time!) and decided to stay in town for the last weekend of our trip. It was fate. Or the Force. Or maybe you’re like Han Solo and don’t believe in hokey things like that.

May The Fourth Be With You: The Star Wars Themed Scum and Villainy Cantina

You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.
We must be cautious. – Obi Wan (Ben) Kenobi

Ever since I first saw the Facebook page from the Scum and Villainy Cantina pop-up bar in Los Angeles, I was convinced I wanted to go. To my surprise, Sharon was interested in going as well.

 

At first, the location was only selling tickets for two months and you needed to purchase admission in advance and then reserve the date you wanted to go. Living on the other side of the continent, I just couldn’t make a trip there on a whim. So I kept following their website and their Twitter and Instagram feeds, hoping for more information. First they extended for a month, and then another. I knew this pattern…they were following the Sleep No More playbook, where the event says they’ll be open for a limited time so you’re made to feel the need to attend now before they close, and then they extend and extend. I kept hoping it would continue.

Hotel Review: W Hollywood, Hollywood, California

I dropped some hints about staying at the W Hollywood in my post about whether you would still stay here after receiving an emailed warning from the hotel prior to our check-in:

On weekends, W Hollywood is a high energy, adult environment. If you’re looking to live large, you’ve come to the right place. If you prefer a quiet environment or are traveling with children, we suggest you stay at one of our sister properties. Contact us at 323-798-1332 for assistance. You won’t be charged for a cancellation fee within 48 hours of receiving this letter. 

Even though we’re not known for living large, we still decided to stay at the hotel for the same reason we picked it in the first place, it was in the PERFECT location for the main reason of our trip.
