The 4th of May to most is just another day or the day before Cinco De Mayo but to many others, it’s a very special day. May 4th is Star Wars day. May the 4th Be With You as you celebrate your inner Burger nerd with Schweid & Sons at Pounds & Ounces (160 8th Ave) on May 4th for the 4th Annual NY Burger Week. Pounds & Ounces, for this day only, will transform into the Mos Eisley Cantina by serving an entire menu made up of Star Wars themed food including 5 off-menu Burgers including the Kobe-Wan Wagyu Burger featuring The Katana Blend from Schweid & Sons. While you’re enjoying your Star Wars themed Burger, you’ll be sure to try some of the drinks from a special Star Wars themed cocktail menu. A Bantha Burger (not actually made from Bantha) was made to be eaten while drinking Dark & Storm Troopery, but that’s obvious.
