StarWarsFest 2012, with official drink list

Every few years I gather up some friends and we eat things and drink things and watch the three original Star Wars movies back-to-back-to-back and there is great merriment. This not-really-annual event is called StarWarsFest, and the 2012 edition occurred last Saturday.

Each party I try to level up slightly over the previous one. Last time, the second StarWarsFest, my friends and I came up with an amazing themed drink list. (Note: that list is slightly inaccurate due to typos; see below for accurate, updated version!) This time we one-upped with better decorations and, most importantly, an R2D2 cake:

With super-duper thanks to my friend who was a cake decorator for 8 years.

The other star of Saturday’s party was the new boy Watson, who was pretty much going insane at the multitude of lap options available to him. Representative image of Watson:

Note: Watson is not actually a prince.

Because I’ll take any excuse to post a cat picture.

Anyway! Without further ado…
