TONIGHT! Easter Baskets! • April 5th, 2017

TONIGHT! April 5th, 2017 from 9pm until midnight (or later) it’s CRAFTNIGHT!!!
Project: Easter Baskets! 
$3 Donation Please 
$4 Drink specials! Akbar: Gurrrl, come-n-get-it! 

Do you like it elegant or rustic? Are you a little bit country, or a little bit rock-n-roll?

Lemme tellya ’bout a little chipwood basket offering I’ve got tonight that is so adorable I jus’ wanna scream in an octave too high for my throat, throw my hands in the air all mad-about-it, then collapse down on the ground crying. This is a triumph moment for CraftNight, because usually I see these dumb little baskets and I notice them too late and they are TOO EXPENSIVE for me to justify purchasing them for our weekly gathering. And I want to kick myself for AGAIN not having the foresight to order them.

But this year is different. This year, I vowed that I’d start looking in January, and my determination won me some cheap-ass baskets for us to paint! And they’re just really really CUTE!!! You’ll also get some pastel-colored grass bits, and a cute little egg that goes with it, making tonight’s craft even MORE value-packed than it usually is. Embellish these cutie hampers with ribbons, pipe cleaners, and all sorts of creative decor to fit your whim!

For those of you who eschew or poo-poo the Easter holiday for it’s reliance on a certain designated stigmata-encumbered individual’s life-and-times, do not worry! Easter can just be about ovums, because I’m sure you’ve noticed the baby ducklings at your local park, or the multitude of spring flowers brought forth by the season’s mighty rains? Maybe you’ve just had to fortify yourself with many allergy and sinus medications like myself, to prevent yourself from turning into a giant snot ball? It is… like… totally Spring.

Celebrate spring with a chipwood basket, this is your seasonal calling, an opportunity for which to decorate a sassy receptacle to keep all of your spare jellybeans.

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain

This Wednesday April 1st, 2015 from 9pm until midnight (or later) at Akbar, it’s CRAFTNIGHT!!!
Project: Bunny Necklace AND Egg Hunt!

$4 Drink Specials to put a spring in your step!  

Want to find an egg with a TREAT in it? I hope so, because I’ve got some treats, and I got some eggs, and we’ll have a small auxiliary spring time game for you to play. An egg is waiting for each crafter, and what’s in it will be a token of CraftNight’s appreciation just for you!

Our main craft is an Easter bunny necklace that will be a hit at any Easter appointment you’ll be attending this Sunday. Spring is for bunnies, lambs and chicks, it’s for tiny shoots of grass and puffy clouds, and blue skies! It’s for cleaning out your spice cabinet, getting rid of old stuff in your drawers and getting new spiffy clothing for running around outside! You can officially pack up all that cold weather stuff, LA is warming up and gearing up for funshine.

EXTRA CRAFT: Tissue paper flowers for the upcoming WEDDING RECEPTION! From this point until the April 22nd, every CraftNight will be making tissue paper flowers for the festivities (in addition to that week’s craft of course)! You’re invited to help us out! Come and volunteer your hand at an old art!

April 26th >>> Your Craft Captain is getting married, come to the reception at AKBAR!!! Bring your friends and celebrate Lesbian LOVE! There will be karaoke from 8 to 10, dancing, drink specials, lesbian antics, entertainment and legally wedded bliss. 8:30pm until 1:45am Woooo!!!!

Easter Eggs • April 16th, 2014


This Wednesday, April 16th, 2014 from 9pm until midnight (or later) at Akbar, it’s CRAFTNIGHT!!!
Project: Easter Eggs, A BIG DEAL! 
$2 Processing fee, please
$4 Drink Special: “The Lyla” Double your joy and disappear your sorrows!

Remember the PAAS Easter Egg coloring kit? It never went away. It’s still here with it’s funny “magic crayon” and the cardboard box where you punch out the holes for your newly dyed eggs to sit in, the weird wire egg holder that kind of works and kind of doesn’t… it’s waiting for you.

They’ve added stickers. They’ve added themes. But even with all that new mumbo jumbo, it’s still the same PAAS kit of yesteryear. We’ve got the vinegar-water-tablet cups you plop your egg into and wait for the shell to take on a hue of brilliance. Other things available will be some of the staples from the craft smorgasbord to which you are accustomed, as well as a few other interesting bits suitable for accoutrement.

If you’re a stranger to all of this, you might as well start now, because it’s worthwhile, I must say, you get to craft something that you will EAT, and the last time we dyed eggs was 2010!

I’m kind of hoping that someone makes a “Passover brisket” egg.

I will be boiling many eggs in preparation for your arrival, so please humor me, help me get rid of all of these eggs! I’ll have fry boat baskets and plastic grass for you to put them in so that you may take home and care for them until you wish to make an egg salad sandwich.

See you at the Craft Table,
JP Craft Captain
