Hey, you know what sucks about being in New York right now? Having to walk outside. As much as I love hissing every time a gust of wind hits me, I’m more excited for indoor activities right now. And what’s a better winter time than booze-fueled arts and crafts? If you said, “There is none!,” you should go to Freddy’s Backroom tomorrow night for Diorama Lodge. Diorama Lodge is several hours of making wonderful creations inside of a shoe box. The theme will be announced when you get there, and the creators will all vote on the winner. Bring your own shoe box, glue, pipe cleaners, pieces of string, discarded cassette tapes, buttons, shark teeth, plastic dinosaurs, etc. It’s kind of like that episode of the Simpsons with Diorama-Rama, only I doubt a collection of Star Wars figurines will take home the prize.
Freddy’s Bar and Backroom
548 Dean Street at Sixth Avenue [Prospect Heights, Brooklyn]
