Most nights of binge drinking leave you poorer, hung over, and slightly more sclerotic. Come away with something to show for your compulsion: Craft Night at Akbar.
Craft Night infuses drinking with the preschool, pasta-based art your parents secretly threw away, with the bonus of not having to ask permission to pee. Each Wednesday's focused on a different project, which're often sublime (shrinky dinks) but new this week, are actually useful (beer cozies). To participate, just pony up a small donation -- two to three dollars -- and join the bar's dedicated art pro in the back room, where scissors, paints, and pastes ares are available for you to use/furtively snack on.
In case hard booze is required for your finger-painting penchant to surface, Akbar offers revolving drink specials -- guaranteeing that not only will you get a new beer cozy, you'll also be able to afford to contract excruciating liver disease from that which it keeps cold.
