Drink and Draw with the Party Table

Greetings, true believers!

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

Wednesday September 2nd from 6-9 PM (We may stay later depending) at the Rez Lounge on Plainfield Ave, there is going to be a Drink and Draw hosted by The Party Table!

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 sick skillz! Got a sketch book, bring it and add a few new pages while enjoying a friendly atmosphere and some good conversation.

This is about getting awesome artists together to meet and greet. This is about getting those perfect people we’ve met through this crazy thing we love back together in the down times to enjoy a little bit of THE PARTY and to make some awesome art. Join us, won’t you?

Feel free to invite friends!
