I'm Not Drinking, I'm Scrapbooking
How hot is it outside? Mickey Rooney just married Dolly Parton for the shade! To avoid this and other horrible weather-themed jokes, run to the Team Arts and Crafts Night, down one of those $4 cosmopolitans and forget you ever read this, as you learn with your team of new friends how to make a Rainbow Sun Thermometer. Tonight you'll make something with your hands -- a process that becomes infinitely more entertaining the more drinks you have. CraftNight, a salon run by Neo Enthusiasm Movement pioneer Julianna Parr, is a way to bring artists and amateurs together to have fun as they become raw founts of creation, enjoying the encouragement of their artistic inclinations all the way. So mellow out, grab a drink and some glue and get crafty. Akbar, 4356 W. Sunset Blvd., L.A.; Wed., Aug. 25, 9 p.m.; $2. (323) 665-6810, crafthead.com or akbarsilverlake.com.
