It may not feel much like summer at the moment, but in a matter of days you'll be melting in the heat again and seriously pondering whether or not going to work in a bathing suit would get you in any real trouble. It might, unless you have a really cool bathing suit that you drunkenly decorated with all kinds of glitter, jewelry and similarly not waterproof shiny stuff.
The best time and place to do that, not incidentally, is tonight at Spacecraft (355 Bedford Ave, between S 4th and S 5th Sts), where designer Jana Kennedy of Knickers and No Fur Coat's monthly craft party Craft on Draught will be guiding attendees through DIY updates to swimwear. Things get underway at 7pm, and a $10 ticket gets you beer, raffle tickets and free materials — except a bathing suit, which you should bring or get one of Knickers and No Fur Coat's at a discount.
