TONIGHT: Shamrock Bracelet! • March 14th, 2018

TONIGHT!!! Wednesday, March 14th, 2018 from 9pm to midnight (or later) it’s CRAFTNIGHT! 
****Project: Shamrock Bracelets! 

*******$4 PABST/TECATES • $5 Cocktail Special, not necessarily nutritious, but SO delicious!    
*********$3 suggested donation, thank you for supporting the arts!  


Last week I was out of town on holiday, and I FORGOT to set up the craft adequately before I left town. This means that last week, unicorns were not served up for last week as planned, my sincere apologies to my wife, Akbar and SparkleBlob staff, totally my snafu, ugh!

This means we’ll be making unicorn pins in the near future, so if you missed it, you’ll get another chance! But for NOW, we’ve got St. Patrick’s Day on the very near horizon, and we can’t have you without the proper celebratory baubles now, can we? Bring on the plastic precious gems!!!

We’ve got for you a shiny, sassy, beautiful and LUCKY bracelet featuring shamrocks! I’ll also have some other bead choices of other colors and shapes on hand for you to use, in case you want to incorporate some of the other colors of the rainbow besides green.

This weekend, it’ll be SparkleBlob’s seventh adventure handing out Super Sloppy Chili Cheese Dogs to runners of the Los Angeles Marathon!!! If you’ve got what it takes to wake up and do this around 6am on the corner of Temple and Edgeware (mile 5) contact me!

Later that same day I’ll be hosting Bet Yer Bottom Bingo, with big booze prizes, drink tickets and MORE! See info below!

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain

PS – If you like this Stephen Hawking (Rest in Peace, Good Sir) LEGO photo at the top of this bulletin,  it’s totally a LEGO SET YOU CAN BUILD… but it’s out of stock indefinitely… but how cool is this?

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
