Dress up as Princess Leia and get a free pizza

The world lost its favorite space princess, Carrie Fisher, on December 27 and the tributes have been flowing in for the iconic Star Wars actress ever since. Fans fashioned a makeshift star for Fisher at the Hollywood Walk of Fame and staged lightsaber vigils across the country, and now a New York pizzeria is joining in on the salutations to Fisher's life and works. 

Through Friday night, Soho's Champion Pizza (17 Cleveland Pl) is offering not only a free slice to anyone who comes in dressed as a Star Wars character, but free whole pies to those who come in costumed as Fisher's beloved Leia Organa Solo. Pizzeria owner Hakki Akdeniz is a lifelong Star Wars fan and, as such, the staff will also be outfitted in costumes from the popular series.
