Last week, The Russian and I were invited (by way of my awesome job) to check out The Paint Bar, a neat concept on Newbury Street down the street from my place of work. Painting with booze and food? Awesome.
It was totally sweet. The food was really satisfying, with tasty salads and pizzas, which were provided by Newbury Street vendors.
After we were fully fed and happy, we settled into our seats with some booze and were led on a guided painting class. The guide, a spunky gal named Jackie, who is a local artist and part–owner, taught the class how to make masterpieces using easy instructions and a fun playlist. She certainty made me feel like an artist, and I’m not being modest when I say my talents are better suited for the internet than the easel.

For about $35, you too can have a paint night with your friends or special someone, and the location also has booze for pretty cheap, so load up and have yourself a night.
