This weekend, Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens awoke a ton of nostalgia and excitement across the board--yes, even Seattle Restaurants got in on the action. From gingerbread shrines to droid-themed cupcakes, the force is strong with these Seattle spots.
Similar to the moral dilemma of good versus evil or the light versus the dark side, choosing between triple chocolate and vanilla cupcakes can be just as conflicting. Trophy Cupcakes ups the ante with special cupcakes inspired by Darth Vader, C-3PO, and R2-D2. They’re currently available online at $51 for a dozen.
Gingerbread Hoth at Rhein Haus
Rhein Haus perfectly merges the traditional holiday activity of gingerbread building with December’s other other holiday activity of seeing the new Star Wars movie. The German gastropub in Capitol Hill has erected a gingerbread-scape of the forever-wintry planet of Hoth. Admire the gingerbread AT-AT on December 22, when Rhein Haus will have happy hour food and drinks all night long as part of their 12 Days of Christmas events.
After catching a showing of The Force Awakens, hunger is bound to strike (back). So, for a limited time swing by Li’l Woody’s in Ballard, show your Star Wars ticket stub, and receive 10% off your entire order.
The Gingerbread Village at Seattle Sheraton Hotel
Perfectly situated across the Regal Cinemas in downtown Seattle, the Seattle Sheraton Hotel has created a Star Wars-themed gingerbread village and it is nothing less than epic. The candy-and-frosting-based display is free to the public and will stick around until January 3, 2016. Bring in your Star Wars ticket stub to their Sheraton Fountain Wine Bar for a free house wine or beer (hot chocolate, cider, and soda also available) from December 18 through December 27.
