$3 Donation Please 
$4 Drink specials! Akbar: Treat Yourself! You Deserve It! 

I’m back in town, and ready to make wooden amulet necklaces with you! It’s time to take beads in hand, and paint too, and make/preserve for yourself a totem for the good ol’ summertime. Because now we are August, which means 31 days of hot living, which means you’ve got to look as hot as possible.

We have so much planned, we even have some really exciting extracurricular activities set for you, including helping out with some a community project with the LA Rocks (as in actual, sedimentary, made from the earth’s crust, rocks) and FIGURE DRAWING with Dr. Sketchy!!!

For now, however, we’ll set you up with a wooden shape and the hand drill, and you’ll paint/adorn the center of your necklace, and then fashion its strings with beads, baubles and what-nots from the collection I’ve prepared for you! It’s soooo much funnnn ahhhhh maaaaaa gahhhhhh you will like it. AND I’ll have the air conditioning on, you can be nice and cool, with a cocktail, and your friends, and the night’s gonna be perfect. Did you see the moon? Go look at the moon, then come see us.

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain

Kan Koozies! • July 26th, 2017

This Wednesday, July 26th, 2017 from 9pm until midnight (or later) it’s CRAFTNIGHT!!!
Project: Kan Koozies!
$3 Donation Please 
$4 Drink specials! Akbar: Your Cocktail Runneth Over! 

CraftNight Lieutenant, Jazz, will be at the help this week, hosting a freaky, foamy night of KAN KOOZIE KRAZY!!! What the heck’s a kan koozie? It’s one o’ those cylindrical enclosures you put on your canned beverage to keep it cool while you walk around at the beach, the campfire, the backyard soirée!

Because it’s not hot yet. I mean… the temperatures we’ve seen around here are warm, yah, sure they are, but August and September are nigh, and THAT, my friend, that is some summertime madness. That’s when everyone breaks out the Raymond Chandler quote about how hot it is, when parking lot fights happen more frequently and more angrily, cats PANT. When it reaches that apex, you just wish you could peel your skin right off your bod to escape the concrete-reflecting fiery heat.

Decorate your kan koozie and impress everyone at your next social event. No one will tell you to your face that they’re jealous of the custom job you’ve done on your new piece of gear but they are extremely envious and wish they were you, believe me. They will seethe quietly and roll their eyes pretending they don’t care, but really they’ll be eating their hearts out. Because you’ll be beating the heat all handmade style, flaunting your glittery, bauble-laden, googly-eyed, beaded brazen masterpiece of an ice cold beverage.

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain (be back next week!)
