Attention South Enders!

We paired barstools from 8 local (and willing) bars to 8 local artists, who will tear them down, doll them up and do whatever it takes to turn them into works of art. We’ll lead a band of merry revelers from bar to bar to check out the finished pieces AND to auction them off! Proceeds from the stools go to the artists and to Seaba.

We’ll meet at Three Needs at 6:30 to rally the troops. Here’s our crawl schedule, with each bar’s artist, for the evening:

-7:00 – Three Needs (Mark Eliot Schwabe)
