Surrealist Games and Beverly Hills Troop • August 5th, 2015


This Wednesday, August 5th, 2015 from 9pm until midnight (or later) at Akbar, it’s CRAFTNIGHT!!!
Project: Surrealist Games with Camp Counselor Andrew!  
Screening: Troop Beverly Hills 
$3 Processing fee, please
$4 Drink Specials: Triple Soothing Action


In the footsteps of Dali, Magritte, Miro, Man Ray, and more, we shall dive into the unconscious with some avant-garde crafts! These surrealist crafts/games require no strategy, no logical deductions and no specific skills!
This evening centers around freeing your mind from the constraints of discursive order. Camp Counselor, Andrew, will be leading this expedition into the provocation of bourgeois normalities.

For the Exquisite Corpse project, you’ll be shown how to produce drawings that lead you far far away from conscious intention.
For the Surrealist Collage project, you’ll use magazines to produce fantastic amalgamations of the delirious and grotesque!

If that’s just too much for you this week, in cheeky and notable opposition to the spirit of surrealist games, we’re screening Troop Beverly Hills starring Shelly Long as a spoiled, 80s-era aristocrat who transforms herself into a warm and useful person! Look for Pia Zadora, Annette Funicello, Kareem Abdul Jabar and Cheech Marin! Look for Rodeo Drive, Spago’s and other LA Landmarks! Wax nostalgic for the display of overt, devout materialism that was the late 80s!
The CraftNight Store will have movie munchies for you to snack on as you watch this cherished camp classic next to our indoor resort campfire.

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain

PS- We will also have Resort badges for anyone who wants to earn them. You can get this week’s limited edition “FAT CHRIS PRATT” badge, and you can also earn the Angie Cho Badge, the campfire badge, the Kenefick Mind Pavilion badge, and who knows what else…


****** August 12th – Mousetrap Magnets with Camp Counselor and CraftNIght Lieutenant, Veronica LeBron!

It is the end of July, we are nearing the August month which means we are officially in the heart of midsummer. Visitors to Los Angeles will often say it’s hot in July, but they have no idea the true parching power that is August. In August you can’t buy bread at the market, by the time you get home, it’s toast!

We will have refreshing cocktails for you at the bar, and a refreshing craft coming to you from none other than our visiting CraftNight Campfire Resort Counselor and Yumster Friends Creator and Business Owner, Angie Cho! We will have the necessary supplies for you to do this craft, just bring yourself! Angie will show you how to use two different scraps of pretty paper to cut two halves of a heart, glue them together on card stock and voila! You will have a really nice set of heart cards.
Also: Our new camp store is OPEN! Get cotton candy flavored Pop Rocks and jawbreakers at inflated campstore prices! Look for new sundries every week!

And remember: We’ll have a special badge for this night, and you can collect them all by visiting our resort and doing the required activities to earn them! Collect them ALL!

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain

PS- We will also have Resort badges for anyone who wants to earn them. You can get a campfire badge, a glowing brain badge, and who knows what else…

CraftNight LOVE-IN!!! • February 11th, 2015


This Wednesday, February 11th, 2015 from 9pm until midnight (or later) at Akbar, it’s The CRAFTNIGHT LOVE-IN!!!
Project: Valentine-O-Rama!!! 
$3 Processing fee, please
$4 Drink specials, for the love o’ cocktails! 

If you like Valentine’s Day, see you this Wednesday.
And if you hate Valentine’s Day, see you this Wednesday.

I’m serious.

You can blame retail, or the system, or cupid, or your ex, but blaming external factors is just another way to naval gaze one’s mind into wasting precious time and resources. If you’re going to be bitter, at least have the sense to be bitter in good company, with fabulous people, and a beverage in your hand.
In the words of Mama Cass “Make your own kind of music. Sing your own special song. Make your own kind of music, even if nobody else sings along.”
The world needs more love all the time and while romantic love is just fine, we also need stuff like friends giving each other cookies, dogs getting extra walks, Grandpas receiving flowers, we need stuff like compliments, hugs, encouragement and support.
Could you use stuff like that? Well we have some just for YOU!
Prepared for you this Wednesday:

• LOVE RAFFLE (Mad mad prize baskets)!
• “The Apple” film on the AKBAR JUMBOTRON!
• GUARANTEED Valentine from Craft Captain!
• SNACKS (sweet AND savory!)!
• Limited Edition magnet BADGE(while supplies last!)
• Delicious Cocktails!
• Fancy Music!
• Cute Friends!
• Hot Strangers!

Make horrible OR wonderful Valentines from the CraftNight vault’s special scrap collection! Paper, markers, glue and glitter GALORE!
I’m working my butt off making special scrap packets for each and every crafter. The ephemera I’ve gathered covers an inventive plethora of emotive card-making choices for today’s lovers, meta-modernists, pervs, and sardonic skeptics.
Your neighborhood needs love, your city needs love, your local gay bar needs LOVE!
If your heart is healing and you want to wallow, we shall wallow with you.
If you’re all about making something wonderful for a special someone, we can help with that.
If you just want to win awesome prizes and watch “The Apple” while having snacks, it’s ON. And on that note, if you’ve never seen “The Apple” I’m aghast. Everyone must see it. EVERYONE.
Here’s the FB invite, RSVP and tell me you’ll be there.

See you at the Craft Table,
JP Craft Captain
