Last year, I had my first paint & drink experience for Erin‘s birthday. It was totes fun. For Christmas, I decided to get the hubs “experiences” so we could spend time together. One of those was a date at Paint Nite. I picked “Chicago Starry Night” because … it was pretty. We attended the class last Wednesday.

Creepin’ on everyone else. This guy drew a moon with the Batman symbol on it. Genius.
Overall it was a fun event and now we have some adorable art to hang in our apartment. I scored a LivingSocial deal for these, I think it was $20/person.
