TONIGHT!!! Camp Creature Kits • July 27th, 2016


TONIGHT!!! WednesdayJuly 27th, 2016 from 9pm until midnight (or later) at Akbar, it’s CRAFTNIGHT. 
Project: Camp Creature Kits 
$3 Processing fee, please
$4 Drink Specials at Akbar: Akbar, start the night with great taste! 

How do you feel about ducks, beavers, cupcakes, unicorns, foxes, squirrels, and owls?

This is what we’re bringing for you this evening, and these little kits sport some seriously great dimensionality. They’re like… almost 3D, but not, but they really pop, and they’re made out of felt, they look like summer, they seem like fun. They are fun. You’re fun!

We hand-packed these kits, they are in little bags that we filled at the dining room table while drinking iced coffee and listening to peppy electronical musical songs. The kits were packed with energy, which means, by osmosis, you will probably glean some energy from the power of these kits, and be able to tackle all of your goals and tasks of life with aplomb.

These kits are designed to give you that breezy light feeling that comes with picnics by the water, national parks, s’mores by the fire, and cocktails with friends.

Did I say cocktails with friends? Why yes, I do believe I did!

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain

Wildlife Circus Bonanza • July 20th, 2016


This WednesdayJuly 20th, 2016 from 9pm until midnight (or later) at Akbar, it’s CRAFTNIGHT. 
Project: Wildlife Circus Bonanza    
$3 Processing fee, please
$4 Drink Specials at Akbar: Akbar, the Freshmaker! 

The colors are bright, the drinks are fresh, the ambience is accepting and welcoming, the night is perfect for a summertime outing, we will be waiting for you!

I’ve got for you:
6 Picnic Lion Kits
6 Carousel Horse and Giraffe Kits
8 Paper Bag Animal Kits: Owl, Fox, Bear, Raccoon
8 Mini Plate Owl Kits: 4 of them Purple, 4 of them Orange/Yellow

I’ve been in a complex head space this year, brain tied in knots mulling over the madness of humanity mixed with the hope of human possibility.

I’ve been asking myself, is it worth the incremental gains, to keep doing this CraftNight thing, fighting the collective malaise of our time and chipping away at big-city cynicism and self-centeredness every goddamn week one googly eye, one puffball, one drop of glue at a time?

The answer is yes.

Because sitting inside a Sisyphean mindset of hopelessness and resignation just isn’t going to do a single cotton-pickin’ thing. And no, it’s not a cakewalk, but no one said that hope is free, and no one said we get to eat rose petals, fried pickles, and honey all day long.
In the words of Albert Camus, “Life in the face of pain is the ultimate revolt.”

Therefore, please come to CraftNight and share with us but a moment of your revolt, your freedom, your passion.

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain
