The Original Paint Nite: Unleash your inner artist
Paint the night away this week at an Original Paint Nite event. Sip drinks and share laughs with your friends, maybe dance to a few of your favorite tunes, all while you move step-by-step toward completion of your own work of art! You'll be in great hands with our master artist Kristina Elizabeth who will guide you through the whole process – no experience necessary! Just grab your buds and come on out to Brandy Pete's in Boston this Wednesday night and see what all the fuss is about. Yaymaker events always give you all you need to stay local and explore your creative side. Make some extra YAY this week!
Brandy Pete's, a longtime Landmark in Boston's Financial District, was established as a restaurant in 1933 (at the end of Prohibition) by Pete Sabia. It was located at 80 Broad Street, diagonally left of Franklin Street, and a two minute walk from its current location. A Brandy drinker, Peter was often seen talking with customers having a snifter in his hand. It became tradition that anyone who was new to Pete's, or complained about the food or service, etc. had to buy Pete a Brandy, hence the name "Brandy Pete's". It is the goal of the establishment to carry on the tradition of providing a friendly atmosphere featuring an honest drink, a wide-ranging, moderately priced menu, from salads and sandwiches to steaks and fine dining entrees in the evening, with fast and attentive service. We hope you enjoy your experience and will tell others about what is new at Pete's!
Kristina has been drawing pictures since she could hold a crayon. When she was old enough to have those funny little coloring books where you would dip a pen in water and then put it on the pictures to "magically" reveal the colors, she would rather create her own picture stories on the back, blank pages than color the pictures already there. Growing up, nearly every page of her notebooks in school had a doodle on them or even a little story spreading over multiple pages, often getting her in trouble with teachers. Although, she initially moved to New York City to study Theatre, she soon realized she preferred the visual arts and returned to her first love. Kristina graduated with honors from School of Visual Arts' Illustration BFA program and is now an award winning illustrator and fine artist. Upon moving to Boston, she discovered a new love in sharing her enthusiasm for art and teaches a variety of college courses in addition to a full time art career and Paint Nite. She loves how Paint Nite can reconnect adults to the creative spirit we all had as children. She does not believe in talent, but believes everyone has the potential to create with passion and practice
