The force is strong with this one.
While countless fans of the Star Wars saga were gathered at local cineplexes on Friday, December 18, to catch their first glimpse of The Force Awakens, the C.A.S.A. Lounge in Tempe became like the cantina bar in A New Hope as it hosted a slew of strange and costumed characters during the Star Wars Art Party. Dozens of works created by local artists inspired by Star Wars were on display, several of the attendees were in costume, and local musicians performed on the C.A.S.A. Lounge stage.
