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!
