Clothespin Noteholder Magnet Craft! • August 16th, 2017

This Wednesday, August 16th, 2017 from 9pm until midnight (or later) it’s CRAFTNIGHT!!!
Project: Clothespin Noteholder Magnets!  
$3 Donation Please 
$4 Drink specials! Akbar: The Bar of Your Heart!

Notes notes notes, little pieces of paper all over the place and nothing to control it!
Whatever will you do?
However shall you survive?
Never fear, CraftNight is here, with a remedy for wayward papers! Come on in, paint up your clothespin, apply a magnet, and voila: notes organized!

NOW THEN: A lot of hate has been bubbling to the surface of our nation, in a way that is terribly discouraging. Please come in and use your Akbar, your CraftNight. We are a location specializing in tolerance and acceptance. Akbar is a space of love, and very reasonably priced cocktails.

We’re a fabulously queer community hub, and we’ll not let the vile dumbness of hatred and bigots seep into our sequins, no we will not. We are not strangers to this battle, and we’re doubling down to stick up for ourselves and each other. Because the shit storm isn’t on the way, it’s not coming, it’s here.

The Southern Poverty Law Center lays out some of the solemn details of how the radical right was more successful in entering the political mainstream last year than half a century. Also, check out Dr. Walter D. Greason’s compiled materials from a class he taught on collective racial violence that can help us understand the danger that Charlottesville represents.

We have creativity, we have impact. Our numbers are huge, and our voices are LOUD. CraftNight has been rocking our first amendment rights with Protest Poster Painting Parties and other forms of Craftivism. Stay tuned for us to supply you with continued ways to unite for social justice and the planet at large.

But mainly we offer respite: an air-conditioned intermission from the 24-hour news tickers tickering tenacious tensions. Come in and have a cocktail, some art therapy, some goodness.

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain

Leprechaun Clothespin Craft! • March 16th, 2016


Wednesday March 16th, 2016 from 9pm until midnight (or later) at Akbar, it’s CRAFTNIGHT!!!
Project: Clothespin Leprechaun Craft! 
$3 Processing fee, please
$4 Drink Specials at Akbar: Beauty is in the eye of the beer holder… 

Despite the wish of some people who don’t want their Irish heritage to be represented by a mythical wish-granting gnome… that’s exactly what we’re doing this week at CraftNight.

We’ll give you a leprechaun craft kit that comes with adorable clothespin legs, googly eyes, a fashionable green outfit, and yes, his hair is red.

Leprechauns are financially responsible, they work as bankers, distillers and shoe cobblers and they smartly guard their gold with a rainbow mirage. If you chase them to steal their charm cereal, you are a total jerk. We, the neighborhood gay bar shall be celebrating our tiny green brethren to full potential because there’s a long history of fairies being friends with leprechauns.

Besides, everyone knows it’s the fairies who drink themselves to a stupor and party all the time. Akbar could use a few leprechauns; the bar is lousy with fairies, it’s just a merrymaking mishmash of fun and debauchery ALL THE TIME. We also are host to militant mermaids, ubiquitous unicorns, trashed trolls, wild werewolves, growling griffins, hollering harpies, and so much more. There is a lot of variety to be found on the corner of Sunset and Fountain, come see us, we’ll keep a beverage cold for you. All mythological creatures need refreshment.

See you at the Craft Table!

JP Craft Captain
