Do booze and creativity go hand in hand? We dont know if its been scientifically proven, but we do know of some pretty bad-ass bibulous artists. Van Gogh, for example, drank absinthe and created Starry Night. OK, so you might think thats a bad example because he cut off his left lobe and mailed it to a brothel wench. How about Picasso? Also a drinker. His parting words were, "Drink to me, drink to my health, you know I can't drink any more." Tonight, its time to do more than toast to these masters: lets aspire to be them at Drink N Draw. Every other Monday starting tonight from 7 to 10 p.m., 18 Rabbit (18 NW First St., Fort Lauderdale) will provide the beer, the space, and the model for $12 at the door, $10 in advance. Were welcoming people of all skill levels, says Leah Brown, the gallery director, from stick-men-only to trained professionals, to come draw from a live model. Bring with you the tools or drawing materials of your choice pencils, charcoal, pastel, even clay and for each session, two models will be present. Release that creative genuis there will be no formal instruction. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP. Call 954-990-4315, or visit 18rabbitgallery.com.
