Spaghetti with fresh marinara sauce, house-made meatballs, and house salad and bread. Yes, it’s the old stand-by, but ours contains a fresh and homemade marinara sauce and a 1/3 pound hand-patted meatball served over piping hot pasta, and it’s just the right kind of pastalicious serving that makes life a little better. With it’s groundbreaking special effects and engaging narrative, Star Wars premiered on this day in 1977, grossing a then record of $800 million dollars worldwide. What folks don’t know is the story behind the Tunisian shoot. George Lucas originally envisioned Tatooine as a jungle planet, but after scouting locations in the Philippines, they decided against spending several months in a sweaty and hot jungle — mainly because it would be filled with things that made Lucas itch. So, they opted for a desert planet, and they chose to shoot in Tunisia near Nafta and Matmata. After facing a very rare Tunisian rainstorm, the crew grappled with C3-PO’s failing suit which shattered and punctured actor Anthony Daniel’s foot, with failing radio control devices for R2-D2, and with filming difficulties from the super bright desert sand and sky. Falling behind schedule with all these difficulties, the crew needed some serious respite. Well, as you may have guessed, spaghetti and meatballs whipped up by the kitchen crew helped Lucas, the actors, and the crew push through the unpleasant problems to make cinematic history. Yep. Pasta — it kept the Star Wars galaxy spinning. Come grab some of our spaghetti and meatballs this Thursday, you might just feel like you’re in Star Wars wielding a light saber or blaster and saving the rebellion.
