How To: Channel Your Inner Monet

IMG_5342 A couple weeks ago two of my friends and I decided to try out the latest social craze, Paint Nite. If you haven't heard of it, Paint Nite consists of taking a painting class at a bar (while having some drinks, obviously). They are hosted frequently throughout the city (and country) at various bars and each class has a different theme. Ours was at Revel, a bar in Meatpacking, and we all painted sunsets. The instructor had us paint step-by-step so all of our paintings came out the same. I was sort of disappointed because I had imagined myself having a stroke of creative genius and going wild on the canvas, resulting in an artistic masterpiece. I guess I'll have to save it for next time. Aside from my initial crushed dreams, Paint Nite was so fun and basically we all laughed the night away. Since you don't need to be an experienced painter at all, I definitely recommend it for everyone. Side note: Revelย isย a really cute bar/restaurant with an open garden, AND it has a great happy hour from 5-7 so I'm definitely going to go back for that!
