Keychain Fob Magic • July 25th, 2018

Wednesday, July 25th, 2018 at Akbar ’round 9ish to midnight (or later) it’s CRAFTNIGHT! 
Project: Keychain Fob Magic 

*******$4 PABST/TECATES • $5 Cocktail Special, the wave of the future!      
*********$3 suggested donation, please!

“Where are my keys?” You said NEVER AGAIN after making a beautiful and envied keychain fob at CraftNight! This thing is a boon to anyone who misplaces their keys anywhere, because you can design it to be the most flamboyant, vivid, eye-catching keychain this side of the Rio Grande. Misplaced keys will be a thing of the past!

This is a multi-variety keychain craft involving assemblage of decorative bead combinations AND drawing/scrapping together something to put inside the lil’ picture frame thingy that comes with it. It’s a two-parter, easygoing and as complicated or as simple as you make it. Save your keys or someone else’s keys (makes a great gift) with this peppy lil’ handmade souvenir of practicality!

I know it’s summer, I know your brain is all befuddled with BBQs, beaches, and diversions that are ever so much more enticing than the administrative tasks required to keep living. Drag your addled, overheated self to our bar and give yourself a much deserved break!

This craft is a quiet, relaxing playground for your mind, fostering a cocktail-laden, air-conditioned escape hatch from the scurrying timelapse-frenzy of the urban lifestyle.

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain

Hot Season Pinwheel • July 18th, 2018

Wednesday, July 18th, 2018 at Akbar ’round 9ish to midnight (or later) it’s CRAFTNIGHT! 
Project: Hot Season Pinwheel

*******$4 PABST/TECATES • $5 Cocktail Special, something to talk about!      
*********$3 suggested donation, please!

The 18th is National Hot Dog Day, National Sour Candy Day, and Nelson Mandela International Day! I thought you might want to celebrate accordingly with your very own wind-powered-color-your-own hot season pinwheel! The pinwheel comes with its own colorful stick, so you can run around like a fairy godmother, granting wishes, or, if the hot weather turns everyone and everything cantankerous, you can just sweetly beat the crap out of any obstacle that stands in your way.

These are “jumbo” pinwheels: impressive, grand and ostentatious! A sweet breeze will really make this thing put on a show! I’ll have all the decorative items available at your leisure, you can deck this thing out and attend garden parties with glamorous aplomb. The temperature here in our lovely metropolis is in the high 80s, which SOME people call hot. I’ve been calling it hot… but I know that’s not actually hot, I’m being dramatic. What we’ve been experiencing lately is a dainty hot, where you can still turn on the grill or function as a normal human being. We had a little preview in early July to show us what’s truly on the menu for upcoming months.

And because I know what’s coming, let me just say to you: Guuuurl, you’re gonna need a pinwheel. Because when August and September hit Los Angeles, the other shoe drops and EVERYTHING is cancelled. You will feel like you need a forklift to spatula your body up and out into the world to get stuff done.

A decorative pinwheel will tell you where the breeze is, should the fates be courteous and send us one. It will also remind you of a time when you had the energy to make a pinwheel, evoking those cooler days, remembering that this too shall pass.

See you at the Craft Table,
