Yellow Submarines! • March 22nd, 2017

TONIGHT! March 22nd, 2017 from 9pm until midnight (or later) it’s CRAFTNIGHT!!!
Project: Yellow Submarines! 
$3 Donation Please 
$4 Drink specials! Akbar: The Taste of Cocktail Goodness 

I didn’t want anyone falling behind in their ocean studies, so we’re making submarines this week, yellow submarines, to be exact! They’re sturdy, they are very easy to put together, and what’s more: THEY FLOAT! This is the perfect accessory for replaying scenes from The Hunt for Red October or Das Boot in the bathtub! Be glad that you aren’t actually in charge of a nuclear-powered warship, and enjoy your bath!

Or, you know, get cerebral, set your sub on a shelf and let it be a reminder of the hidden parts of yourself that make you special, parts that are amazing and unknown that even you haven’t discovered yet!

How often are you invited to assemble your own watercraft? I’m thinking it’s not often, so treat yourself, get a delicious beverage from our fearless crew, visit the CraftNight rumpus room, and enjoy assembling your foam submersible!

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain

Floating Ship • May 20th, 2015

This Wednesday, May 20th, 2015 from 9pm until midnight (or later) at Akbar, it’s CRAFTNIGHT!!! Project: Floating Ship  
$3 Processing fee, please
$4 Drink Specials, get to mingling, soon you’ll be tingling! 

It’s a simple foam ship, you assemble it, decorate it, and then head out on the high seas!

Against the elements, despite the primal dangers of the seas and the universe’s seemingly or total non-obligation to serve you in any way, you are OUT THERE on the water living, surviving, being fabulous!

This craft is so awesome because it really does float, you can take it to a friend’s pool and watch it bob around on the drink. You can pretend to be fiercely obsessive Captain Ahab or instead pretend to be tattooed and determined Queequeg! Navigate your boat your way, independent, free and to different shores.

Take that ship, take that plane, even if it’s for one day, even if it seems impossible. There is power in the “reset” button. Give yourself a different environment, some silence, some trees, I don’t know, whatever it is that you don’t usually get, do your best to detach from the grind, and have some recreation.

Are you aware that every American owns the deed to 635 million acres of public land? I’m talkin’ about Yosemite! Yellowstone! The Grand Canyon! Carlsbad! The Great Smoky Mountains! And then I heard crafts and cocktails is a pretty good local substitute if you just can’t get away.

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain
