Feb 12th 2020 TONIGHT! LOVE-IN!!!

Love is an art, just as living is an art; if we want to learn how to love we must proceed in the same way we have to proceed if we want to learn any other art, say music, painting, carpentry, or the art of medicine or engineering. 
~Erik Fromm

February 12th, 2020 at Akbar, 9pm it’s the CraftNight LOVE-IN!!!

JP Craft Captain and KJ Teri present:
FEB 12, 2020 • 9pm

TONIGHT we celebrate LOVE. I do not mind if you’re sardonic or earnest. It matters not to me whether you are heartbroken, or heartsick. It’s fine if you have heartburn, or if you’re heartfelt, or hearthappy, or whatever.

Your heart is your business, and we’re here to LOVE IT.

Come in and sing, come in and craft. Make a valentine for someone you’ve never met. Croon some Hall and Oates while eating a delicious complimentary chocolate.

What do we have for you? SO MUCH LOVE!!!
Join us for a fun-filled evening of singing, drinking and crafting home made love tokens!!! You know us, we ONLY do deluxe, so get over hear and treat yourself to a very good time indeed!

Assortment • November 2nd, 2016


TONIGHT! Wednesday, November 2nd, 2016 from 9pm until midnight (or later) it’s CRAFTNIGHT!!!
Project: Assortment! 
$3 Donation Please 
$4 Drink specials! Akbar: Because life’s complicated enough

Next week’s CraftNight will be the day after election day. That’s why this CraftNight bulletin is historic. CraftNight has been around for three presidential elections, this will be our 4th. I don’t know if we’re going to be horrified, relieved, or what.

My brain is sort of stewing in it’s stress mixture about it, so I’m doing what I do best: Getting the supplies together, and waiting for you to walk on in, I think we’re going to do some coloring. Coloring’s good for anxiety.

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain

January 23rd, 2013• Crafting on the High Seas on National Pie Day

This week's CraftNight flyer brought to you by Sarah Williams

This week’s CraftNight flyer brought to you by Sarah Williams

This Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013 from 9pm until 12 (sometimes later) at Akbar, it’s CRAFTNIGHT!!!!
Project: Seafaring Crafts on National Pie Day 
$2 Suggested Donation 
$4 Cosmopolitan Drink Special: The Akbar Cosmo is the one Cosmo to have when you are having more than one.
NATIONAL PIE DAY: There will be pie!

According to The National Pie Council, this Wednesday is National Pie Day. Take a moment and just let that sink in. The gift of pie will be present at CraftNight for anyone lucky enough to get here and have a slice. Support your local pie makers!

Gray whales are heading down south in large numbers, the sea is rich with a highway of super mammals, all heading for their calving grounds in Baja. You can drive 60  miles north, get on a boat and possibly see WHALES near the Channel Islands. Now if you’re not in the mood for that, you can drive 60 miles east, get yourself up to Mt. Baldy and go tubing or skiing in the SNOW.

If anyone is giving you crap about Los Angeles this week, tell them that in January you can see WHALES AND SNOW ON NATIONAL PIE DAY and then see what they say. Because that’s just crazy, isn’t it? I mean, nothing’s crazier than that. The only thing that could possibly be crazier would be a gray whale in skis, doing a slalom down Mt. Baldy while also eating a piece of delicious pie. We live in an amazing arena of incredible opportunities!!! Along with whales and snow, you get crafts, pie and cocktails, there’s so much stuff to do around here I’m not sure how anyone can even THINK of being bored.

This craft will involve eye patches, sailing ships and some other sea-themed knickknacks for you to assemble and decorate! I also have a few sea-themed appliqués, available this Wednesday ONLY!!! And don’t forget: there is still a wee chance you could show up at CraftNight and get the coveted January “Golden Pinecone Pin” one in a series of 12 pins, a different pin each month. Very few are left, I hope you get one!

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain
