Summer Variety! • TONIGHT! July 12th, 2017

This Wednesday, July 12th, 2017 from 9pm until midnight (or later) it’s CRAFTNIGHT!!!
Project: Summer Variety!
$3 Donation Please 
$4 Drink specials! Akbar: High Performance Delivered

Elysian Park alone has had FIVE fires since June 30th, that’s a lot of fires!

We’ve entered fire season early, the June gloom has given way to parched skies warming tiny bundles of tinder in the forests just waiting to combust into trouble. When it’s like this, I feel like hosing off my brain, as if my thoughts are akin to the dry and flammable kindling of the southland’s thirsty hillsides.

To help this sizzling seventh month along, the crafts this week continue to be selections from the vault. You must understand: 15 years of CraftNight means, effectively, 750 nights of hosting crafts every single week. There have been leftover supplies from time to time, I don’t throw them away. I save them for summertime! This meansI have a sweeping assortment of projects for you to choose from, from old classics, to wonderful weirdness!

Will you make a clothespin airplane? A princess castle? Will you decorate a doorknob hanger? Do let’s find out! Cool off that rainless brain of yours, bring it in from outside, give it something creative to do, along with some shade and a refreshing cocktail. Treat your cerebellum oblongata to a night of delicious diversion.

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain

Craft Surprise Times • TONIGHT! July 5th, 2017

TONIGHT! Wednesday, June 5th, 2017 from 9pm until midnight (or later) it’s CRAFTNIGHT!!!
Project: Surprise! 
$3 Donation Please 
$4 Drink specials! Akbar: It’s as Good as Everyone Told You!   

1.) Is there CraftNight tonight? – YES! 

1.) Does your Craft Captain know what tonight’s craft is? – NO! 

3.) Will the craft be fun, no matter what it is? – YES!

I’ve been out of town, and many things have happened since I saw you, and you know what? I’d really like to see you tonight, if you have the time. Having arrived in town only recently, I don’t have an exact plan for the craft we are doing, but such a thing isn’t even a hiccup in the certainty of being able to provide for you a craft experience that will be gladly satisfactory.

It’s HOT outside, and the forecast shows that the week will only get hotter. Why not treat yourself to a cocktail, some crafts, a bit of air conditioning, some camaraderie in a lovely queer-friendly atmosphere, summer nightlife, under the waxing gibbous that is our little ol’ moon?

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain

NO CRAFTS TONIGHT! Wednesday, June 21st, 2017

CraftNight will be back next week, so check in by visiting www.craftnightlosangeles.com or visiting CraftNight on FB.

JP Craft Captain

CRAFTNIGHT CANCELLED TONIGHT!!! • June 14th, 2017

NO CRAFTS TONIGHT! Wednesday, June 14th, 2017    

I have succumbed to quite the terrible flu. It is a flu you don’t want, a flu you don’t wish on anyone.

This flu arrived so swift and so powerful that I’m barely a person. My brain can’t even parse the idea of a side project or get a sub for tonight, which, if you know CraftNight, is very very RARE. Sometimes you just gotta not do something. This is one of those times.

CraftNight will be back ASAP, so check in by visiting www.craftnightlosangeles.com or visiting CraftNight on FB.

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain


are welcome!
