Diorama Lodge at Freddy’s Bar

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

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.

Diorama Lodge
Freddy’s Bar and Backroom
548 Dean Street at Sixth Avenue [Prospect Heights, Brooklyn]
First Tuesday of every month, 8 to 11pm

Kiley E - Ragamuffin Researcher

Kiley E - Ragamuffin Researcher

After years of denial, Kiley has finally admitted to baring a striking resemblance to Velma from Scooby Doo. Instead of traveling in a van hunting ghosts, she prefers wandering on foot in search of tacos, cheap beer, and fake birds. Growing up in Portland, Kiley enjoyed the balance of urban and green spaces. Then she spent her four years at Ithaca College, and found herself craving more sprawling asphalt in her life. So she moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where most of the buildings look like they're about to collapse. Kiley's favorite activities include: getting lost, crafting, sewing, biking, and geeking out at museums. Her love of taxidermy probably makes her a terrible vegetarian, but she doesn't care.
