How’s your soul’s place in the fabric of things? Well, we’ve got sun catchers at CraftNight because it’s officially SUMMER and while things are gonna get hot, crafts are going to be cool as always. These lil’ clear plastic keepsakes are of various themes, and you fill them in with suncatcher paint, wait for them to dry, and then you hang them up in front of a window and it’s just lovely.

It’s that time of year when Los Angeles comes ALIVE. It’s time for pool parties, cookouts, tank tops, flip flops, stargazing, tan lines, hammocks, and all the summer lovin’ you can handle. Step into that summer light and shine. Allow light and warmth to find you, let’s get into expansion, sunshine, life with fervor. Because you’re wild and free, forget about someday, that shit’s just air and moonbeams, you’ve got now, let’s have some goddamn fun.

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain

*****$3 Donation Please 
******$4 Drink specials! Akbar: See What We Mean

It’s FALL!!! Right now, you have the most Autumn enjoyment before you: the most pumpkin spice everything, the most football, the most fall clothing, the most harvest vegetables, the most haunted houses and scary movies and pumpkin patches, the most bonfires, the most colorful leaf changes, the most county fairs, and the most fall food recipes. ‘Tis the beginning of seasonal autumnal splendor, a time of both abundance and wistfulness. Is Autumn a beginning or an ending? Can it be both? The daylight hours shrink, the darkness becomes more prevalent, yet there is also a spark. A glimmer of your creaturely nature may cause you to pause and say “I do believe I’m connected to it all!”

For pondering just that type of thought process, and to connect you with the seasonality of being human, we have really excellent Fall Suncatchers! You get one corny cartoony style one, and another hipster style geometric one! You also get a suction cup for hanging your craft in the window! This is lowbrow stained glass (plastic), it’s very uncomplicated, you’ll paint these with special suncatcher paint I ordered especially for this night! It’s easy and painty, you can talk and do this at the same time, it’s not a concentration breaker!

See you at the Craft Table,

JP Craft Captain

50 Shades of Suncatchers • February 18th, 2015


TONIGHT! February 18th, 2015 at Akbar from 9pm until midnight (or later) it’s CRAFTNIGHT!!!
Project: Suncatchers!
$3 Processing Fee
$4 Drink specials *** If you’re gonna knock yer socks off, knock ’em off with Akbar’s signature style cocktails!***

Are you a:

  • Frosted Mini Spooner
  • Tootie Fruity
  • Marshmallow Matey
  • Honey Nut Scooter
  • Boyardee Ravo Spinner
  • Angel Soft Toilie Papel
  • Spam Anvil
  • Helicopter Pie

No matter! Whatever your personal preferences and peccadillos may be, we’ve got suncatchers for you. There are many different types. I’ve got chickies, kitties, puppies, monkeys, elephants, fishies, lions, bugs, flowers, kites, cars and one frog.
They’re made of plastic, they are clear, and the special suncatcher paint you pool within their rigid borders will be the colors and shades that you choose. Many of them come with googly eyes, and the intention with the finished product is that you’ll hang yours in a window. The sun will shine through it, and it will be CAUGHT by the suncatcher and brighten your day.
Anyone else who spies it will also have their day brightened.
This craft is so easy it’s practically fail-safe, which as you know, I do not endorse. If you have any friends who are afraid of failure, bring them to CraftNight at Akbar, because even the most unloved suncatcher is a beautiful suncatcher.

See you at the Craft Table,
JP Craft Captain
