The Lipton Brisk-sponsored event on February 2 was a preview of the Brisk Bodega Cantina Pop-Up Gallery, where all the Warsies and lightsaber deficient folk alike could mingle with Iced Tea Vodkas infusing their veins. The force was strong with all the Episode I-themed artwork and fliers that adorned the walls, blue light projections that graced the exteriors, Yoda and Phantom Menace collectible Lipton Brisk Iced Teas, private video gaming lairs, and a 1/1 scale of Yoda gracing the crowd with his omniscience in the lobby.
With performances by DJ Skee and the legendary Just Blaze to keep the people moving, New Jersey-styled hot dogs from the Greasy Weiner kept people fueled. It was a night that stuck to keeping the spirit of this epic space opera film alive with an unmistakable swathe of geekiness, but with an unmatched cool as well.
