Springtime PuffBall-n-Foam Creatures • April 25th, 2018

This Wednesday, April 25th, 2018 at Akbar it’s CRAFTNIGHT! 
Project: Spring Foam-n-Puffball Creatures

*******$4 PABST/TECATES • $5 Cocktail Special, everyday’s a holiday!         
*********$3 suggested donation, please! #ScrappyNonProfitThanksYou 

I’ve got some NEW varieties of Springtime creatures for you to assemble and decorate for this week! Some of them are ladybugs, some might be chickens, could be a caterpillar or a hare, I’m making sure we have a good variety of items so that you have the very best crack at all the crafting sundries available to you. Pop in and enjoy climate-controlled crafting with a cocktail! 

The temperature keeps doing weird things, and so does the air quality. This is how we do Spring in LA, a fickle fluctuation of hot or cold, windy or still, overcast or clear… and it’ll do that until we hopefully hit “June Gloom” which might arrive anywhere from May to June.

LA Springtime Tips: Don’t put away the fan, or the heater just yet. Keep your water close and your allergy meds closer, buy extra chapstick, neti-pot the hell out of your sinuses, get those tissues with lotion so your nose doesn’t fall off, wear layers and take a light jacket everywhere you go. It is warming up this week, according to the forecast, and pollen counts are not off the charts, but pretty decent, and tiny funky particles are kickin’ up and making the air kinda gross but not unlivable, which means, there’s fun stuff to do this weekend! 

Venture out for some Queer fun! The first, on Saturday, is an all-ages family event, and Grand Park never disappoints when it comes to fun! I’m performing in a line-up of GREAT PEOPLE! The second event I’ve listed here is a 21-and-over event, a fundraiser at the Eagle for Dyke Day! Come on out, have a brew, get some raffle tickets, get spanked, enjoy convening with friends to support our upcoming day in the park! Details below!

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain

Springtime Animal Magnets • April 10th, 2018

This Wednesday, April 11th, 2018 at Akbar it’s CRAFTNIGHT! 
Project:  Spring Animal Magnets!  

*******$4 PABST/TECATES • $5 Cocktail Special, see what we mean!       
*********$3 suggested donation, please! #NonProfitLife  

Honestly there’s so much happening in April, just scroll down past all this folderol I’m typing and go see for yourself! Meanwhile in the CraftNight rumpus room at Akbar this week, there are the crafts to be had, and you really must have them. One need not travel to the outskirts of the city to witness cute springtime animals romping about, because we have them right here. We’ve got bunnies, and chickies, and lambies, and other supercute creatures for you to build. Display them on your shelves, your dashboards, your bathroom countertops, anyplace you desire. Wherever there is a flat-enough spot, you can put one of these little friends, or you can stick-em on the fridge.

In other news, I’m happy to report that the bees that were swarming and clumping on the side of our abode are gone. They swarmed, protected their queen, and after 48 hours, moved on elsewhere to a place they thought she’d like better. I couldn’t really think when that was happening, I love bees, but when they do that… they freak me out. But now that I’ve read some info about it, I feel flattered that they chose us for a little while. Apparently, the Spring season is bee swarming time!

Also: I directed Pat and Charlie in their latest escapade, their Solid Gold Lamé Cabaret! If things have been feeling too serious, or you want to snort your margarita out your nose from laughing too hard, maybe come see this show. We promise it’s the sassy sparkly diversion you’ve been craving.

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain
