Hot Season Pinwheel • July 18th, 2018

Wednesday, July 18th, 2018 at Akbar ’round 9ish to midnight (or later) it’s CRAFTNIGHT! 
Project: Hot Season Pinwheel

*******$4 PABST/TECATES • $5 Cocktail Special, something to talk about!      
*********$3 suggested donation, please!

The 18th is National Hot Dog Day, National Sour Candy Day, and Nelson Mandela International Day! I thought you might want to celebrate accordingly with your very own wind-powered-color-your-own hot season pinwheel! The pinwheel comes with its own colorful stick, so you can run around like a fairy godmother, granting wishes, or, if the hot weather turns everyone and everything cantankerous, you can just sweetly beat the crap out of any obstacle that stands in your way.

These are “jumbo” pinwheels: impressive, grand and ostentatious! A sweet breeze will really make this thing put on a show! I’ll have all the decorative items available at your leisure, you can deck this thing out and attend garden parties with glamorous aplomb. The temperature here in our lovely metropolis is in the high 80s, which SOME people call hot. I’ve been calling it hot… but I know that’s not actually hot, I’m being dramatic. What we’ve been experiencing lately is a dainty hot, where you can still turn on the grill or function as a normal human being. We had a little preview in early July to show us what’s truly on the menu for upcoming months.

And because I know what’s coming, let me just say to you: Guuuurl, you’re gonna need a pinwheel. Because when August and September hit Los Angeles, the other shoe drops and EVERYTHING is cancelled. You will feel like you need a forklift to spatula your body up and out into the world to get stuff done.

A decorative pinwheel will tell you where the breeze is, should the fates be courteous and send us one. It will also remind you of a time when you had the energy to make a pinwheel, evoking those cooler days, remembering that this too shall pass.

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain

Craft Surprise Times • TONIGHT! July 5th, 2017

TONIGHT! Wednesday, June 5th, 2017 from 9pm until midnight (or later) it’s CRAFTNIGHT!!!
Project: Surprise! 
$3 Donation Please 
$4 Drink specials! Akbar: It’s as Good as Everyone Told You!   

1.) Is there CraftNight tonight? – YES! 

1.) Does your Craft Captain know what tonight’s craft is? – NO! 

3.) Will the craft be fun, no matter what it is? – YES!

I’ve been out of town, and many things have happened since I saw you, and you know what? I’d really like to see you tonight, if you have the time. Having arrived in town only recently, I don’t have an exact plan for the craft we are doing, but such a thing isn’t even a hiccup in the certainty of being able to provide for you a craft experience that will be gladly satisfactory.

It’s HOT outside, and the forecast shows that the week will only get hotter. Why not treat yourself to a cocktail, some crafts, a bit of air conditioning, some camaraderie in a lovely queer-friendly atmosphere, summer nightlife, under the waxing gibbous that is our little ol’ moon?

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain
