Cards Against Humanity Hanukkah Gifts Already Sold Out

The final year of getting gifts from Cards Against Humanity is set around Hanukkah. Sadly, it sold out already. I'm sure Super Punch and other sites will have a break down of the gifts later this December. However, the group behind Cards has left us with a Hanukkah miracle. If you listen to their order page for the sold out gifts you will hear a perfect break down of a Jewish family dinner for Hanukkah.

It's so's scary. If Jewish or ever over for a Jewish dinner listen to this. It's a perfect capture of a Jewish dinner.

We already had the Force Awakens x Gallery 1998 art show and Season of the Force
starting at Disneyland. So many Star Wars events will be happening in our fair city that it was decided to just give it its own recurring column for the time being. Thus we start Star Wars Stuff section with all events relating to Star Wars in one area of the site.

What looks like a night of insane fun is

Friday, December 18
8:00pm - 11:00pm
Pershing Square

From Newmindspace and Lightsaber Academy comes Lightsaber Battle LA 2015. Coinciding with the release of the film the event ask you to join the dark side or the light side of the force with a massive duel taking place in Pershing Square at night. The event hopes that the Jedi and Sith come out in the thousands.

Don't worry if you don't already own a lightsaber, they're selling their brand for $10 that can be picked up at a nearby gallery before the battle begins. Yes, you get to keep it and the lightsabers can change to six different colors.
