Latham's Lager House joining the paint-and-sip fad

See also

The latest drinking fad in the Capital Region isn't a matter of downing a shot every time someone on social media misspells something, or every time the Obama administration has to backtrack on something it said. No, instead it's picking up a paintbrush and creating art while sipping wine or a cocktail during a class. (Go here and here for some of the latest examples in the area).

At least, that's what it had been. Now, the folks at The Lager House, located in the Albany County community of Latham, are getting into the act with a series of events they've titled a "CRAFTy Beer Event: Painting On Canvas." The craft beer bar and pizza restaurant will host its first such event this Saturday from 8 to 10 p.m. Patrons will be artist-guided through a casual painting process -- no experience necessary -- while they sip craft brews. Each will leave with a finished 16-by-20-inch painting.

Participation is $36, or $32 if paid in advance by calling (518) 782-2500 or sending en e-mail to jessica@lagerhouserestaurant.com. Drink and food specials will be running during the event. Successive "CRAFTy" events are scheduled for Wednesday, May 7; Saturday, May 17, and Wednesday, May 21. Repeat participants will be able to save $5 off the registration fee. The Lager House is located at 1895 Old Loudon Road.
