Keychain Fob Magic • July 25th, 2018

Wednesday, July 25th, 2018 at Akbar ’round 9ish to midnight (or later) it’s CRAFTNIGHT! 
Project: Keychain Fob Magic 

*******$4 PABST/TECATES • $5 Cocktail Special, the wave of the future!      
*********$3 suggested donation, please!

“Where are my keys?” You said NEVER AGAIN after making a beautiful and envied keychain fob at CraftNight! This thing is a boon to anyone who misplaces their keys anywhere, because you can design it to be the most flamboyant, vivid, eye-catching keychain this side of the Rio Grande. Misplaced keys will be a thing of the past!

This is a multi-variety keychain craft involving assemblage of decorative bead combinations AND drawing/scrapping together something to put inside the lil’ picture frame thingy that comes with it. It’s a two-parter, easygoing and as complicated or as simple as you make it. Save your keys or someone else’s keys (makes a great gift) with this peppy lil’ handmade souvenir of practicality!

I know it’s summer, I know your brain is all befuddled with BBQs, beaches, and diversions that are ever so much more enticing than the administrative tasks required to keep living. Drag your addled, overheated self to our bar and give yourself a much deserved break!

This craft is a quiet, relaxing playground for your mind, fostering a cocktail-laden, air-conditioned escape hatch from the scurrying timelapse-frenzy of the urban lifestyle.

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain

HEADS UP>>>> NEXT TUESDAY: The debut of “Bet Yer Bottom Bingo” hosted by your Craft Captain at Akbar 8pm to 10pm with drink specials and prizes!!! 

Are you a dreamer? Do you have aspirations?

It would only be fitting to fashion for yourself a way to keep your dreams in a safe place, a spot to parse them, sort them, keep the ones you want and dispose of the ones that freak you out. Not only that, but what if such a thing could be portable and even a daily reminder to pay attention to your dreams? WE’VE DONE IT!!!

We have the technology, these bright little dream catcher crafts have everything you need to bead up a fine little mascot for your reveries, your musings, your plans for yesterday, today and tomorrow. I’ll bring extra beads and feathers so that you have the ability to get extra flamboyant.

In other news: next week I bring to you “Bet Yer Bottom Bingo” where you can win some pretty sweet stuff for playing BINGO!!!! We have the turny-thingy with the balls in it, and paper cards, and you can sit there and play as many cards as you like, and we’ll play four corners, criss-cross, blackout and other variations from 8pm until 10! BET YER BOTTOM!!! BET YER BOTTOM BINGO!!!!

See you at the Craft Table,

Keychain Coloring Crrrazy! • August 7th, 2013


This Wednesday, July 31st, 2013 from 9pm – midnight or later, at Akbar, it’s CRAFTNIGHT!
Project: Keychain Coloring Crrrrazy, and Black Velvet Options! 
$2 Processing fee
$4 Cosmopolitans! The Akbar Cosmo: Everything you love about Booze. 
Also: Special Summertime Extracurricular CraftNights @Echo Park Rising Aug. 18th, then @The Skirball August 31st!
The 2013 Gothtober Call to Artists is NOW! Apply by August 9th!

On the tail end of “National Clown Week, we’re going to get right into August by taking pen in hand and coloring our little hearts out! Sometimes it’s just so peaceful to sit with colors and fill in the lines, there’s nothing to worry about, no complicated thoughts, no anxiety about where to go or what to do. The lovely black-velvet mini posters I have for coloring should fit just about any mood, and if you need more of a freeform feeling, I have keychain coloring kits. The keychain kit is basically a plastic round shape with removable customizable inserts that you can draw on, or write some errant quip, and then clip to your belt buckle or bag strap.

Slogans like

  • “Anything before 9am can just Wait”  E.Walker
  • “There’s nothing I’m not over” S. Gallagher
  • “Focus and clarify through dripping cheese.” A. Kenefick

I love August. It’s when summer is just SUMMER, the year is happy to just be itself, sure, there are some holidays here and there, but none of them are “in your face” it’s casual, you can feel relaxed about everything in August.



And don’t forget to apply for Gothtober!!!

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain
