Where American comfort meets French flair! Mimi's was first opened in 1978 by an American Airman who wanted to bring a little bit of Paris to America. Now Mimi's Cafe is bringing French cuisine to many locations across the US. Don’t forget to try Mimi’s famous croissants or their all-day breakfast. Be sure to pair one of their classic French dishes, like baked Brie or Steak Frites with a glass of wine or a mimosa. If French cuisine isn’t your thing, you can find comfort in American classics like Chicken Pot Pie. Delicious house wine is $5 a glass! In just about two hours, while you’re sipping on a glass of wine, beer, or cocktail, our artist will guide you through a painting step-by-step. At the end of the night, take home your own unique masterpiece--you will be amazed by what you can do! Please note: there is not food and drink included in your ticket price and events are 21+ and are not BYOB. Seating is first come, first served.

Tiger Brooke has a tiny house on wheels, and a day job as the Art Director of a small animation company. She has more degrees than she can count, three of them in Engineering, two of them in Art, an MFA in Media that was stolen from the University Of Southern California, and a couple extras just for good measure. She has worked in the movies in Los Angeles, and on the stage in Portland. She sang on an international prog album that is popular in the Netherlands, and will be doing it again this year! Her art focuses on the medium of Stop Motion Animation and what that looks like when presented on the artist's stage. Most recently she was part of an installation where she built a human-scale stop motion puppet that was animated in a public space.
