Paint Nite: Camping under Galaxy Stars
The Original Paint Nite: Unleash your inner artist
This week, your favorite local bar becomes the most rocking art museum, full of your own creations! At the Original Paint Nite, a talented local artist will take you through all the steps from blank canvas to finished painting, all while you drink, laugh (and maybe even dance to some tunes). It's a party and a class all at once! No experience necessary, just bring your friends and your fun and we'll do the rest. At Yaymaker, we provide all you need to get up, get making, and get to exploring your creative side.
Enjoy our local atmosphere complete with historic charThe Olympus Hotel, which was founded by Olympia Brewing Company owner, Leopold Schmidt in 1909. The original back bar, which was built in France by Francisican Monks, remains the shining star of The Forum. Come see the history for yourself!
