At Evil Wine, Star Trek is a passion. The adventures of the dashing and profoundly American hero Cpt. James Kirk, the steady leadership of Jean-Luc Picard and even the less-acclaimed Cpt. Katheryn Janeway of Voyager are the stuff of dreams.
In customary Evil Wine fashion—and to celebrate the May 17 release of the latest installment in the Star Trek franchise, Into Darkness—it is joining with Hot Dog Sandwich Headquarters to present a Star Trek party featuring episodes of the original Star Trek TV series, an appropriately themed costume party and live music. The event begins at 7:30 p.m. and is free, though a $3 donation is suggested because, you know, bands have to eat, too.
The night begins with the airing of Star Trek episodes, including "Space Seed," which features the first appearance of the infamous Khan Noonien Singh, a dangerous genetically enhanced superman who attempts to seize control of the starship Enterprise and the villain of the feature film Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.
The screening is followed by a costume contest, with the best-dressed attendees winning prizes from Hot Dog Sandwich and The Red Room. Music starts at 9 p.m., featuring Celestial Starship, Stargaze Unlimited and Gorcias, followed by DJ Brian Boru. And as with so many Evil Wine and Hot Dog Sandwich Headquarters parties, there will be drink specials all evening long.
