Drink and Draw: JAFAX 2.0 Preparty

Calling all local artists, booze drinkers, anime fans, manga readers, and local booze-drinking-anime-fan-manga-reading artists! Have you ever wanted to prep for the upcoming JAFAX Anime Convention by meeting local creatives, exchanging ideas, and swapping fandom stories over a cold pint?

Lucky for you, you’ll get the chance! And this time the party is gonna be too kawaii to live and too sugoi to die!

Come prepare for JAFAX 2.0 and ready your mental palette at another Party Table Drink and Draw. Join us at the Sundance Grill & Bar for an evening of sketching, drinking, just drinking until your sketches look good, and talking about anime. You bring your mad skills, or “talent,” we’ll bring the art supplies.

Crayons, pencils, and sharpies, as well as white and newsprint paper will be provided. General supplies may be limited, but artists with more discerning tastes are encouraged to bring their own fancy pencil boxes for personal use!

This event is a chance for us anime obsessed local creatives and JAFAX aficionados to gather together before a weekend indulging in some fantastic fandom to exchange wisdom and vision over a nice cold drink. A private room will be reserved at the Sundance Grill & Bar that will seat 40 so room and supplies will be limited. First come first serve.

Steampunks and the Velvet Hammer!

Our local gathering spot, Arbor Brewing Company Microbrewery, is celebrating 10 years! We have been asked to join the festivities as guests, and whoever shows up in steampunk garb, they have said that they will buy them their first round!

From their event page:
“Whether you call us the microbrewery or Corner, we’ve been a part of the Ypsilanti community for ten years as of June 2016. And that is one heck of a reason to celebrate!

Velvet Hammer 10 is aging in its barrel as we plan its anniversary celebration: a day filled with spectable and wonderment including a guest appearance from the Steampunk mob, performers from The Detroit Circus, live piano music from an extraordinary Ypsi local, Halcyon Sound DJs, and, of course, the annual Vertical Tasting in the brewery.

Vertical Tasting tickets are $100 and go on sale MAY 1ST -available for purchase at the main bar or by phone at (734) 480-2739. Check out the vertical tasting event page for more details!

There is no cover for the anniversary celebration in the main bar and beer garden!!

Stop by for the early happy hour noon-4 pm and spend the day reveling in this magnificent sour until the night comes and the dance party begins.”

Spooktacular Drink and Draw

Greetings again, ghoul believers!

Art monsters out there, have you ever wanted to meet with other art mosnters in the area and just enjoy a ghoulish beer and sketch out a spooky doodle while talking about what you do and how you do it? Witch Brew Beer drinkers out there, have you ever wanted to watch some art monsters draw a bunch of neat stuff and maybe even make some neat art of your own? Random zombies on the street, have you ever wanted to go to The Rez Lounge, enjoy a nice brew beer, and/or draw a spooky picture? If any of these questions can be answered with a yes, then The Party Table has a spooktacular event for you!

Crayons, Pencils, and Sharpies, as well as White and Newsprint Paper will be provided to create some fantastic work. If these supplies don’t fit your fancy bring some neater stuff to show off your scary skillz! Got a sketch book, bring it and add a few new pages while enjoying a frighteningly friendly atmosphere and some ghoulishly good conversation.

This will be the second of our monthly meet-ups and we want it to be just as fantastic as the first one. We had a lot of fun and we hope you did as well. But, this time, we want to amp it up! Join us, won’t you?

Feel free to invite friends!
