Open Post: Hosted By The Baby Yoda Cocktail
I’m one of those dopes out there that are so entranced by Baby Yoda that I want the plushie to cuddle and accompany me forever while I continue to make bad choices in life.

I want to avoid it! What the hell are those eyes made out of? COAL? Well, that’s at least Christmassy.

“It’s a literal thing that people could order tomorrow!” Sheridan Room GM Danie Jones told City Pages when contacted by frantic DM late Thursday night. “We were just playing with it today, but we were planning on running it [Friday] as a special.”
In reality, Baby Yoda the cocktail is a gimlet (so, gin or vodka and lime juice) so there’s not any sort of direct Star Wars tie-in with midichlorians or Jabba the Hutt juice. My chief takeaway from this is that “robe” (aka a NAPKIN) is just sad. If you’re going to do a tie-in, do a tie-in and spend some money and get the kid a real robe.
