TONIGHT! Self Defense/Hand Turkeys! • November 15th, 2017

TONIGHT! Wednesday, November 15th, 2017 at Akbar
7:45 – 8:45pm QUEER SELF DEFENSE w/Instructor, Cory Klink!
9pm – midnight (or later) HAND TURKEYS with JP Craft Captain!
****Project: HAND TURKEYS (Annual CraftNight Tradition)  

*****$3 Donation Please 
******$4 Drink specials! Akbar: Friends, Fun, Beverages! 

Tonight you can use your hands as weapons, and then, in the same night, use them to make TURKEYS!

Chances are, if you grew up in the continental united states or something like that… someone grabbed your kindergarten paws and taught you how to make a hand turkey. If you have never made a hand turkey, it’s really high time you made one. It is a simple creation, or it is as complicated as you decide to make it, but it’s just one of those crafts that stands the test of time. It’s a classic.

You can make a colorful turkey, a goth turkey, a pastels turkey, a hand drawn turkey, a day or night turkey, and then you can send it to a friend, or present it to relatives next week as a testament of your love and adoration for them. We won’t be doing crafts next week, due to Akbar’s annual dance party and food drive. This means if you’re hankering to craft, do it this week, and we’ll be back on November 29th with very much fun seasonal cozy crafty fun for you!

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain

TONIGHT! Maize Pin! • November 8th, 2017

TONIGHT! Wednesday, November 8th, 2017 at Akbar from 9pm to midnight or later it’s CRAFTNIGHT!!!
****Project: MAIZE BEAD CRAFT! SO GOOD! 

*****$3 Donation Please 
******$4 Drink specials! Akbar: Hungry? We’ve got Drinks! 

Days are shorter, nights are longer, it’s the perfect weather for meeting new friends or looking up old friends and spending time with both. It’s a bonus night where, if you show up, you’ll not just get a sumptuous bead craft depicting maize, but also an owl pennant that says “Happy Harvest” and instantly makes you smile because it’s so powerful. Both of these items are so engaging and without pretense, that you’ll forget your analysis and embrace their cuteness. They do that.

Next week, there’s some Queer Self Defense, Hand Turkeys, Bingo, and Raucous Pie Party Plans, so check out the lower part of this bulletin to see what’s in store for your month of November goodness.

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain

We have it playing at the bar, and if your nerves are on edge, come in and watch the game while sipping a COCKTAIL! And we’re celebrating a certain bird this month, but not the bird you’re imagining… it’s an owl, and it’s on a lil’ banner/pennant type thing, perfect for hanging on your door, or wherever else you need a Fall Reminder. I’ve got all the sparkly gee gaws to go with it, you just gotta make one!

Because it finally feels like FALL!

I’d type more, but I’m watching the game, eeeeeeeek! LET’S GO DODGERS! CLAP CLAP clapclapclap!

Pumpkin CARVE-A-RAMA!!! (BYOP) • October 25th, 2017

This Wednesday, October 25th at Akbar from 9pm to midnight or later it’s CRAFTNIGHT!!!
****Project: BYO-Pumkin CARVE-O-RAMA! 

*****$3 Donation Please 
******$4 Drink specials! Akbar: Sass in a Glass since the Gay 90s, Dahling! 

STEP ONE: Find a Pumpkin! 

STEP TWO: Bring your Pumpkin to CraftNight! 

STEP THREE: Use CraftNight’s tables, trash cans, carving tools! 

There is only ONE night that I permit the KNIVES with ALCOHOL at CraftNight, and THIS IS IT! Bring in your pumpkin, and we’ll supply the implements of destruction and the cocktails! I’ll have a candle for your Jack O’ Lantern, and we can take photos of all our carved masterpieces together. I’ll have some spooky Ambience going for you, from music, to something strange playing on the Akbar jumbotron. It’ll be a rollicking good time, hope to see you there! And yeah, you’ve got to BYO-Pumpkin because I can’t be toting 20 pumpkins all over LA, there’s no room in a Lyft for such battiness!
