The JUGs Get Artsy at The Paint Bar on Newbury

If you get e-mails from Groupon, Living Social, or Gilt City, then you are probably familiar with the "paint night" concept. For $20 - $40, novice painters are supplied with a pre-stretched canvas, paint, and step-by-step instructions for creating a beautiful piece of art within 3 hours! 

Recently, the JUGs were given the opportunity to try one of these events at The Paint Bar on Newbury St. Though we showed up a few minutes late (in true JUGs fashion), everyone was warm and welcoming and the crowd (of all ladies) was ready to get started. 

But ya, first things first - WINE. 

After grabbing a  glass of wine from the hot bartender, we learned the basics of painting from our fun, goofy teacher, Aristotle, who is studying at Mass Art. Then he turned on some jams and we got in tough with our creative sides.

and, two glasses of wine later, voila:

The Paint Bar is a perfect activity for mother-daughter pairs, a low-key bachelorette or birthday, or just a non-dive bar weeknight activity! We had an absolute blast and now have our paintings proudly displayed in our apartments! Can't wait to go again!

  1. That looks wicked fun. I've got to find a night I can work a class into my schedule.

    BTW, I wanted to let you know that I'm still attending BollyX classes after loving the class you set up with them. I connected them with Yelp Boston & they hosted a class for Yelpers - where 2 of my friends attended and became so obsessed with BollyX that they're now training as instructors.

    Thanks again for that fun fitness opportunity!

  2. Yes - definitely check it out, its so much fun!

    We are so excited to hear that you are loving Bollyx and that you've gotten Yelp involved! The JUGs are definitely overdue for a good Bollyx session!!!
