Back to the Future Day is finally here. In Back to the Future Part II, Marty McFly and Doc take the DeLorean to Oct. 21, 2015 to help Marty's future son stay out of trouble. Fans of the film have been waiting a long time to compare Back to the Future's 2015 with reality, and what better way to laugh at their silly outfits and mass hoverboard transit than arm-in-arm with other fans at a bar.
Check out these local hangouts as they celebrate Back to the Future Day with movie marathons, drink specials, costumes, raffles and more:
West End Trading Co.
