The Original Paint Nite: Unleash your inner artist

Raise your glass to a NEW kind of night out! Yaymaker invites you to create art over cocktails at a local restaurant or bar, guided by a professional artist and party host. Grab your friends and spend two hours drinking, laughing, and flexing your creative muscles. There’s no experience necessary and we’ll provide all the supplies, so you don’t have to worry about a thing (except for having a great time!). Food and drinks are available for purchase from the venue and NOT included in the ticket price. Outside food and drinks are not allowed - NO BYOB. Events are for adults, 21+ only

If you're coming with a group (yay, how fun!) make sure you arrive early to get seats together. Come out early to enjoy dinner before getting started, just let them know you’re with Paint Nite and check in with us to reserve your seats. We do need some time to complete set up, but will be glad to open doors 30‐45 minutes prior to event start time.

Help keep your artist from becoming a starving one - tips are appreciated!

 

Your location

A photo of a Yaymaker Venue called Davis Bros. Pizza located in East Peoria, IL
Davis Bros. Pizza

Davis Bros. Pizza was East Peoria's first pizzeria. The original location on the four corners downtown was opened for business in 1948 by three Davis brothers. Don Davis, the son of one of the brothers, bought the establishment in 1976. He and his wife, Lorene, ran the restaurant until they sold the property and retired in 1986, making the way for Town Centre II. Don's son Dan then began to serve Davis Bros. Pizza in a variety of area locations until Don and Lorene came out of retirement and re-opened in the current Fondulac Plaza location in 1997. In 2002 the Davis' decided to retire again, and announced the closing of Davis Bros. What the Davis' didn't know was that they had one loyal, hungry customer in Texas who was not about to let Davis Bros. close. She was a former Richwoods High School teacher, who moved to Texas in 1980. When she came to visit family and friends in Central Illinois, she would always gather a group to eat at Davis Bros. Upon departing for Texas she would load up 15 to 20 pizzas. When she ran out of pizzas, her friends would then supplement her Davis Bros. craving with frozen pizzas shipped on dry ice. When her best friend informed her of Davis' retirement and the subsequent closing of Davis Bros. in 2002, she flew home immediately, struck a deal with the Davis' family and became the new owner of Davis Bros. Pizza; including the name, the recipe and the original phone booth!
