Since the announcement of Carrie Fisher’s death — best known for her role as the strong and daring Princess Leia in the original Star Wars trilogy — tributes to the late actress have been popping up all over. At Champion Pizza in New York City, you’ll get a free slice of pizza if you come in dressed up as the famous Alderaan princess.
The owner of the pizzeria, Hakki Akdeniz, is a lifelong Star Wars superfan. He told Pix11 that Fisher actually stopped by for pizza one time and left a $100 tip. “She was such a sweetheart,” he said.
If you’re thinking of taking advantage of the free deal in memory of Fisher, we suggest you dress in her all-white costume from A New Hope, rather than the famous bikini from The Empire Strikes Back. It’s almost January, and it’s a bit nippy out.
The promotion will run through Friday night at 17 Cleveland Place in SoHo.
