Rockford Bar Looks Like Something From Star Wars
Want to know what it's like to be in a Star Wars movie? Head down Auburn Street in Rockford and you might get a close up view of the Death Star.
OK, so it's not THE Death Star. We all know it was blown into tiny space particles in episodes IV and VI.
A former bar on the northwest side of Rockford closely resembles the Empire's battle station from the Star Wars movies. Some also think it looks like the terrifying mask of Star Wars villain Darth Vader.
In this episode of "Weird Ass Rockford," we visit what some locals call "The Darth Vader Bar."
