canvas and cocktails!

So, last night's excursion to Canvas and Cocktails was awesome! Aside from the horrendous parking situation...haha. Tyler and I went with Manuel and Andrew (lovingly referred to as Mandrew), and we brought the brunt of the males to the evening! Haha, definitely a chick dominated outing, but no worries. Prepared with 2 bottles of wine in tow (yes, you BYOB while they're getting their liquor license), we knew it was going to be fun! We were supposed to paint blue trees, but I decided that it was silly for Tyler and I to paint the same thing because then we'd have two of the same painting in our house. So, I looked around the shop/gallery and found a painting I liked and decided to recreate that with a twist! The lady who leads the painting is a riot and she blasts some really fun sing-along music while you're painting. Tipsy karaoke painting is awesome :) Here are some pictures from last night:

Tyler with his creation :)

I didn't follow the rules, but here's my painting!

Paint supplies and wine - be careful where you dip your brush!

Loved it! It was kinda pricey ($35/person), but it was something fun and different! I recommend it for a fun date night or double date or girls' night out!

Okay, I must get to work on house stuff then gym because tonight I start my work week! Have a great Thursday!

Cheers :)
