May the Fourth

StarwarsWednesday, May the Fourth is the unofficial Official Star Wars Day.  For those not aware, a typical parting phrase from the Star Wars movies is “May the Force be with you.”  I don’t recall any letters from the movie series, so who knows if characters signed letters that way.
Anyway, since the movie phrase closely resembles the day spoken in a certain way, that day is now Star Wars Day.  Cliffs notes here.
For the Las Vegas area here are a couple events scheduled:
