Star Wars in Yerba BuenaPosted: May 12, 2005 at 7:56 pm in journal
I was hanging out at Yerba Buena Gardens this afternoon with a friend. Well, outside the Metreon actually. Yerba Buena itself was closed, apparently for a private party. We saw a couple guys in tuxes go by, and said “Huh, must be a nice party”. Then we saw a couple storm troopers walk by. And Darth Vader. And a few guys dressed in Jedi robes. I got a picture with the Sidekick of R2D2, over on the right.
Since I was pretty sure it wasn’t a movie launch party, our best guess was that it was the Episode III video game launch party, since when we went inside the Metreon, there were signs everywhere advertising the new game, available on the Playstation. But I just liked the incongruity of sitting in a city and seeing storm troopers walk by. It amuses me.
