Top 5 Things to Do This Weekend

This weekend, Cinco de Mayo likely will reign supreme over our southwestern state (for proof, peep our Cinco guide), but if free-flowing margs, Tecate, Corona, and shwasted coeds in sombreros aren't up your alley, there's plenty more to do. Here are our five picks for ways to spend this weekend.

5. Star Wars Day: May The Fourth Be With You @ Rusted Nail Provided that Luke, Leia, and Han hold a special place in your heart, chances are good that celebrating George Lucas' beloved, nerd-tastic space opera series through Star Wars Day is already on your agenda. And, lucky for you and your buds, Rusted Nail will do the day justice with an exhibition of Wars-themed resin figures, paintings, and T-shirts from local artists Dams, rustedhalo, KiLL!, and Doctor Strangebeast. Join the dork side on Friday from 6 to 11 p.m. Admission is free.
