I finally got around to attending a DC Drink and Draw event for the first time since I went to one previous event in 2015. It gave me a rare chance to go to Adams-Morgan, which is one of my favorite neighborhoods in DC. I took the Metro to Dupont Circle and walked north where I took photos of some lovely sights.

The Embassy of Zimbabwe has a couple of interesting sculptures on its front lawn.

The next photo shows the embassy and flag of what is widely rumored to be President Trump’s favorite foreign country—Russia.

The Swann Condominiums, located at 1801-1803 Swann St., N.W., has an interesting false door with swan-themed art.

I took a few more pictures of some local businesses.

 

That small Eiffel Tower on top of the building led me to take a picture of L’Enfant Cafe and Bar. When I took a closer look at the place, I found out that it has recently gone out of business. It’s too bad I didn’t get a chance to check the place out sooner. (That’s what I get for not going to Adams-Morgan too often.) At least I got a chance to take a picture of the small Eiffel Tower since it’s probably very likely that it will be removed once a new business takes over the space.

The next photo show some political humor in the window featuring Donald Trump and Russia. (LOL!)

The next photo shows the restaurant Johnny Pistolas, where the DC Drink and Draw event was held. One of the main reasons why that event was held is because Johnny Pistolas has Taco Tuesday where all tacos costs $2 each while certain beers were also on sale for $2 and $3, depending on the brand. (As you can guess, this event took place on a Tuesday night.

Here is what I drew at the DC Drink and Draw event that night. While I was waiting for my own tacos to arrive, I did a drawing of a plate of tacos that two women sitting next to me received.

The only beer I purchased was a can of Tecate beer because it was on sale for $3. I made two drawings of the beer can from two different sides.

And, last but not least, I drew a glass of water that had a lime slice floating in it.

Whenever I went to Adams-Morgan I would stop at Döner Bistro because it had excellent German food and a wonderful ambiance. I went there a lot to eat dinner when the DC chapter of Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School met at Chef Ike’s across the street from Döner Bistro. I felt that the food at Döner Bistro was way better than at Chef Ike’s so I would eat dinner there then cross the street all ready to draw whoever was modeling that day.

I haven’t been back since 2014 partly because of finances and partly because I hadn’t had a need to go to Adams-Morgan (especially since Dr. Sketchy’s DC now meets at the Bier Baron in Dupont Circle).

Today I learned via Facebook that the Döner Bistro location in Adams-Morgan will be closed as of August 1 after four years of operation. (Döner Bistro has two other locations that will remain open. Unfortunately those two locations are in Leesburg, Virginia, and Frederick, Maryland and both places are at least a 40 minutes drive from where I live—and that’s in good traffic.) I now regret not making more of an effort to visit Adams-Morgan and eating more meals at Döner Bistro.

I would love to go there for one last meal but I don’t know if I’ll be able to swing it financially (especially given the fact that the Metro system keeps on raising fares while providing subpar service that’s well documented in the Facebook group Unsuck DC Metro). Regardless of whether I’ll be able to eat one final meal or not, I’ll definitely miss that place. My last post about the place from two years ago has photos so you’ll get an idea of what the ambiance was like.

I was going through my Flickr account and I recently found the first album I’ve ever uploaded. Here’s the background: I was selected as a vendor for the 2007 Crafty Bastards event that was held in Adams-Morgan in Washington DC for the second year in a row. (The first year I was selected to participate was in 2006.) When I went to a planning meeting a few weeks before the show, the organizers asked us vendors to get accounts on Flickr so we could have a place to share our photos online. I did so and I brought my Canon Digital Rebel DSLR (which was my primary camera in those days) with me so I could take a few photos.

The first photo is my vending area. The man sitting behind the table is my then-husband, who was a great help to me on that day. (Obviously these pictures were taken in happier times.)

I basically sold polymer clay necklaces, polymer clay boxes, photojewelry with my small photos being placed in polymer clay frames, magnets made from my own photographs, and fairy dolls made from recycled Barbie and Ken dolls that I found in various thrift stores.

Here’s another photo of my then-husband sitting behind the table filled with my handcrafted merchandise.

My husband and I took turns with taking breaks so that someone was always in the vending area. I took a few photos of the event in general during my short breaks (which were mainly the times when I went to the bathroom or went to buy a soda or a snack).

It was a good show for me. The refurbished Barbie fairy dolls were the biggest sellers for me. The other non-doll inventory was a bust though. Otherwise I was okay with how that show turned out for me.

The 2007 Crafty Bastards show was the last Crafty Bastards show I took part in as a vendor. In 2008 I had hip problems that were so bad that I barely walked so I decided not to try out for that show. (I had a hip replacement that year.) In 2009 and thereafter I was rejected for that show and I found out the reason. Crafty Bastards originally was an event that showcased local artisans and crafters. In recent years that show began to provide space to vendors from outside the Baltimore-Washington, DC area (I’ve seen vendors at the last Crafty Bastards show come from as far away as New York City and Atlanta) at the expense of local vendors.

Sometimes I have a fantasy of starting my own annual craft show that would harken to the earlier Crafty Bastard shows in that local artisans from the Baltimore-Washington, DC area would be given top priority while vendors from outside the area would only be given space if there was any left. But starting a show like Crafty Bastards would require money, volunteers, organization, and space and I don’t even know where to begin. Besides I’m financially struggling too much right now to even consider making my fantasy a reality. But one can dream, right?

Last Friday I met someone whom I had previously known through an online political discussion board that my then-husband and I joined a few years ago. After my husband left, he has cut way back on his participation in this forum so I’m now the one who’s more active in that forum.

One member who’s known as Odonata announced on the forum that he was going to be in Washington, DC and he wanted to meet up with some of the DC area forum members. I initially didn’t respond because I didn’t want to go to any event where my ex-husband and possibly his second wife (who’s also my ex-friend) would attend. But then he sent me a PM saying that he noticed that I was in the DC area and was wondering if he could meet me in person since no one else responded to his post. (I knew of one other guy on that forum who lives in Arlington but he hasn’t been as active on the forum lately so I think he missed Odonata’s forum message.)

To make a long story short, I suggested that we go to this place in the Adams-Morgan section of Washington, DC where I’ve eaten before, mainly on the way to attending the DC chapter of Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School. (There haven’t been another session of Dr. Sketchy’s in DC since last October. I’ve been going to the Baltimore Dr. Sketchy’s sessions whenever I’m able to go.) It’s called Döner Bistro and it was founded by a Turkish German and it’s an excellent place. Here are some photos of the place that I’ve taken during previous visits there.

Doner Bistro, Adams-Morgan, Washington, DCOdonata and I spent a few hours drinking beer and eating wonderful food. I found that he lives in Alaska with his wife (who wasn’t able to make it to DC on this trip) and he’s very smart. I could’ve spent all night just talking to him but I had to cut it short because I had promised this one community group that I would help out for a few hours at this table at the Greenbelt Green Man Festival and I signed up for the 9-11:30 a.m. shift. (I signed up for this shift before I managed to finalize this meet-up with Odonata so this meet-up was literally at the last minute since he was in DC for business and he wasn’t sure about his schedule until after he arrived in DC.) Odonata is proof that not all Alaskans are a bunch of ignoramuses. (He told me that many Alaskans are pretty mad at former Governor Sarah Palin because she frequently acts like she’s the typical Alaskan while also acting bubble-headed and stupid, which gives Americans living in the lower 48 states a negative image of Alaskans.) All in all, I had a good time.

Odonata gave me something nice before we left Döner Bistro. He was visiting his sister in Seattle when he visited the Seattle Aquarium. He picked up this really cool postcard featuring a mosaic of an octopus.

He even signed it on the back, which was pretty cool.

A few weeks ago I went to downtown Washington, DC to attend another session of Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School at Chief Ike’s Mambo Lounge. The federal government shutdown had just begun but Chief Ike’s is located in Adams-Morgan, a funky neighborhood full of shops, bars, and restaurants that weren’t affected by the shutdown (other than fewer people frequenting those local businesses because they were furloughed federal employees).

It was also the first day of this rainy weather front that would stay for the next four days. It was drizzling when I was walking to Adams-Morgan from the Columbia Heights Metro stop so I didn’t do much siteseeing this time around. I managed to get a snapshot of this statue that’s located outside an apartment complex.

This time I managed to arrive in time so I could eat dinner at this place that I wanted to check out since the last time I was in Adams-Morgan. It’s called Doner Bistro.

Doner Bistro, Adams-Morgan, Washington, DC

I walked inside and I was blown away by the decor.

This place had kegs that were recycled into stools. The top of each stool had bottlecaps of various brands of beer that were then covered over in some kind of a polyurethane finish.

Doner Bistro had biodegradable utensils, which was pretty cool.

I also loved the variety of German chocolates that were available.

Below is my dinner. I ordered a Diet Coke, bratwurst and pommes (french fries). The food was excellent and I especially loved the pommes. I also bought a bar of Kinder Chocolate but I ended up bringing that home with me and I ate it a few days later. (Yes, the Kinder Chocolate was excellent as well.)

Doner Bistro, Adams-Morgan, Washington, DC

Even the bathroom was unique. There was a blue light that cast a blue palor over the sink, toilet, and trash.

After dinner I walked across the street to the venue where Dr. Sketchy’s was held, Chief Ike’s Mambo Room. There was this Halloween pumpkin that was added to the kitsch decor.

Chief Ike's Mambo Room, Adams-Morgan, Washington, DC

Chief Ike’s has one wall that’s decorated with this Day of the Dead-themed mural that includes skeletons partying. I tried taking a photo of the whole thing a few months ago but it wasn’t quite as impressive as seeing it in person. This time I tried taking a photo of just a portion of the mural. The area I picked to photograph was sort of appropriate since Dr. Sketchy’s involved burlesque. (Although, in reality, people are generally discouraged from groping the burlesque performer.)

Chief Ike's Mambo Room, Adams-Morgan, Washington, DC

I settled down and took out my drawing supplies. A burlesque performer named Valeria Voxx was the model for this session and some of the drawings in this entry are definitely NSFW. It was a fun evening even though the federal government shutdown had an impact on the number of artists who attended this session. (Basically attendance was down compared to previous Dr. Sketchy’s events.)

Valeria Voxx eventually stripped down to this really cool looking top that had a skeleton’s rib cage, spine, and pelvic area. (Which was appropriate since both Halloween and the Day of the Dead would arrive just a few weeks later.) I tried drawing that top the best I could with the limited time allotment that we artists were given.

I participated in one contest where we had to somehow incorporate the federal government shutdown. I had Valeria Voxx kidnap and tie up Speaker of the House John Boehner (complete with his penchant for crying and spray tan that gives an orange sheen to his skin). It didn’t make the finalists that time.

Valeria Voxx, Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School, Washington, DC, October 9, 2013

After the contest there was a break where Valeria Voxx changed to this demented bloody nurse uniform.

I participated in the second contest of the evening where we had to somehow incorporate the recent passing of the Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. Obamacare) and how the radical Tea Party Republicans used that new law to justify shutting down the federal government. I had fun with this one as I used Senator Ted Cruz (who did that infamous 21-hour speech prior to the government shutdown) and Speaker of the House John Boehner (again!) as I used one of his famous quotes regarding passing the Affordable Care Act. (I still have fond memories of how that quote was mashed up with Barack Obama’s original 2008 "Yes We Can!" slogan to create this hilarious YouTube mashup.) It made the finalists that time but I didn’t win.

Valeria Voxx, Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School, Washington, DC, October 9, 2013

Valeria Voxx made one last costume change of the evening, which I captured here (or tried to).

Valeria Voxx, Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School, Washington, DC, October 9, 2013

I also particpated in the last contest of the evening where we had to incorporate a squirrel (since Valeria Voxx changed to an outfit that included a fox tail) and twerking (in honor of Miley Cyrus’ infamous appearance on the MTV Video Music Awards). I screwed up on the twerking part (it’s kind of hard rendering butt twerking in a still drawing) but I went for it regarding the squirrel, especially since Halloween was just a few weeks away.

Valeria Voxx, Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School, Washington, DC, October 9, 2013

There’s also a backstory regarding this piece. The DC Dr. Sketchy’s is led by a woman known only as Rev. Valentine and, just prior to the start of the Dr. Sketchy’s event, we got into a discussion about pets and she mentioned that she had a pet blue jay. I asked her how she managed to get a blue jay as a pet since blue jays are usually wild birds. She relayed a tale about a family of blue jays who set up a nest on a tree in her backyard that was subsequently attacked by a squirrel. The parents fled the nest and only two of the blue jay chicks survived that attack (the other chicks were killed). So Rev. Valentine and her family took the chicks in and took care of them until they reached a certain age and they attempted to get the chicks used to the wild by keeping them outside. Except the chicks went through a second squirrel attack (it’s unknown whether the same squirrel was involved in both attacks) and one of the chicks were killed. The lone surviving chick refused to ever venture outside ever again (it sounded like that poor chick was suffering from a bird equivalent of PTSD) so Rev. Valentine ended up with a pet blue jay. So I did a quick Google image search on my smartphone for a blue jay chick (I’ve only see adult blue jays in my life) and drew this nightmare sequence with a deranged looking squirrel. Valeria Voxx went through the audience and picked the winner so mine wasn’t selected.

That contest was the last of the evening so I headed out into the rain and made the 15 minute walk back to the Columbia Heights Metro station.

Like I wrote in my last entry, I went to two sessions of Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School in the same week. The first session was in Baltimore on July 8. Six days later I went to the other session that was held at Chief Ike’s Mambo Room in the Adams-Morgan section of Washington, DC. It seems like everytime I go to that area, I always find something new to photograph with my smartphone camera. This time I noticed a German restaurant called Doener Bistro. I don’t recall seeing this place before but, then again, I don’t go to Adams-Morgan very often. It looks new to me.

Doener Bistro, Adams-Morgan, Washington, DC

It has been a number of years since I last ate at any German restaurant. (I think it might have been the time my husband and I ate at the German Pavilion located in Epcot Center during one of our many trips to the Orlando area.) That’s because I live in an area where Salvadoran, Peruvian, Mexican, Japanese, Korean, Italian and Chinese restaurants are more prevalent. If I had known that this place existed, I would’ve tried to arrive in Adams-Morgan by lunchtime, eaten there, then spend the afternoon walking around Adams-Morgan until the 5:30 p.m. start time of Dr. Sketchy’s. I took a couple photos of the menu and other outside decorations for future reference.

Based on the menu, this place looked promising but I had to pass this place by due to a tight schedule. I was especially charmed by the sign that was in one of the windows. For people of a certain age, this sign should bring back plenty of Cold War memories.

Here’s a building that’s obviously in the process of being torn down so a newer building can replace it.

Adams-Morgan, Washington, DC, July 14, 2013

Here’s a colorful mural against a cloudy sky. Despite the presence of clouds, it was a very hot and humid day with temperature in the low 90’s.

Adams-Morgan, Washington, DC, July 14, 2013

I finally arrived at Chief Ike’s Mambo Room with plenty of time for me to order and eat dinner (I had a grilled cheese sandwich) and settle in for the evening. I took this photo of what the stage looked like before the event began. It looked luxurious and very comfortable.

Stage at Chief Ike's Mambo Room, Washington, DC, July 14, 2013

Mourna Handful of Black Tassel Boolesque was the model for this session, which means that some of the drawings in this entry are definitely NSFW. Since it was held on July 14, which is celebrated in France as Bastille Day, Mourna posed wearing some French-themed outfits, starting with a mime costume.

Mourna Handful, Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School, Washington, DC, July 14, 2013

I took part in the first contest of the evening where we had to portray her as a superhero somehow incorporate a famous French landmark or something French. (After all, this event took place on Bastille Day.) So I had this idea of drawing Mourna Handful propping up the famous arch of the Arc de Triomphe. This drawing made the finals but I didn’t win anything.

Mourna Handful, Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School, Washington, DC, July 14, 2013

Mourna Handful changed into a Marie Antoinette-inspired costume complete with a very high white wig and a hat shaped like a cake.

It was time for another contest but no one had asked about what the theme would be. We basically just started drawing. I was in a pretty weird mood by then. (The fact that I had eaten one of those DC Crunkcakes probably helped.) I remembered that Marie Antoinette’s life ended by being put inside a guillotine so I drew this picture of Mourna Handful, still dressed as Marie Antoinette, in the guillotine. I remember from previous attendance at the DC Dr. Sketchy’s that the usual MC of the show, Reverend Valentine, admitted that she had a thing for dinosaurs. So I named the guillotine the Dinosaure 1800. According to Google, "dinosaure" is the actual French spelling of the word "dinosaur". I added the "1800" in order to make this guillotine sound like a futuristic state-of-the-art killing machine. (The year 1800 would sound futuristic in 1793, the year that Marie Antoinette was executed.) This drawing not only made it among the finals but I also won that contest.

Mourna Handful, Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School, Washington, DC, July 14, 2013

I got a bagful of goodies that was provided by one of DC Dr. Sketchy’s sponsors, Third Eye Comics. I didn’t look through the bag until after I got home. Here is what I got.

Free Swag From Third Eye Comics

I got all kinds of comic books along with a few Third Eye Comics promo items.

Free Swag From Third Eye Comics

The coolest part was this $25 Third Eye Comic gift card. I now have an incentive to go back to Third Eye Comics. (LOL!)

The last drawing I did of the evening was one that was also for a contest. This time we had to someowh incorporate the Eiffel Tower. I had this really twisted idea of a mime holding the top half of the Eiffel Tower. I didn’t win this time but that was okay since I had already won something.

Mourna Handful, Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School, Washington, DC, July 14, 2013

I did a little socializing after the event ended for a while. I noticed that there were fewer folks present than usual but I learned that some of the regulars were on vacation while others decided to go to one of the many impromptu vigils that had sprung up throughout the U.S. due to the jury finding George Zimmerman not guilty in the shooting of Trayvon Martin late last night. (Many of the people there felt that it was unusual for the jury to be deliberating throughout the weekend then go into the courthouse on a Saturday night to announce a verdict.) When I walked out of Chief Ike’s Mambo Room, the first thing I noticed was this graffitti that was across the street. I don’t know if the Trayvon name had anything to do with the Trayvon Martin shooting or not but it reminded me of that jury verdict at George Zimmerman’s trial the night before.

As I was walking back towards the Columbia Heights Metro station I noticed how majestic the All Souls Unitarian Church looked at night.The clockface in the tower totally lit up and it was a really pretty sight.

Chief Ike's Mambo Room

A few weeks ago I attended the first session of the Washington, DC Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School since the closing of its last location, The Red Palace, last December. The organizers founded a new venue called Chief Ike’s Mambo Room, which is located in Adams-Morgan and it’s much more conveniently located near a Metro station than The Red Palace was.

Burlesque performer Candy del Rio was the model for this session and some of the drawings in this entry are definitely NSFW.

I took part in the first contest, known as The Non-Dominant Hand Drawing Contest, where left-handed people were expected to draw with their right hands and vice versa. Here’s my drawing of Candy del Rio done with my left hand, which didn’t make the finalists.

Candy del Rio, February 24, 2013

After doing that last drawing, I switched back to my right hand for the rest of the evening.

During one of the model’s breaks I took a few pictures of Chef Ike’s Mambo Room with my smartphone camera. It’s a really nice place full of fun and kitschy decorations.

I took a picture of this dog in the photo below. It didn’t move when I took this picture with a flash so I thought it was a stuffed replica. But about a minute or so later the dog raised its head. I learned that this dog is very old and very laid-back.

I entered a contest where one had to somehow incorporate either a spaceship or a dinosaur. I was pretty stumped on it so I just included The Flintstones‘ Dino the Dinosaur.

Candy del Rio and Dino the Dinosaur, February 24, 2013

That above drawing made it to the finalists. I ended up in third place so I got this prize that was provided by this Annapolis comic book shop called Third Eye Comics.

My Little Pony Comic Book

It’s the first issue of the new My Little Pony: Frendship is Magic comic book. I know that Bronies everywhere would envy me for winning that prize. I read the comic book and found that it was a cute parody of the sci-fi classic Invasion of the Body Snatchers, complete with pod ponies. Winning that comic book was definitely a high point for me and I’m even thinking about getting around to buying the second issue of that comic book in order to find out what happened to the ponies who went on an adventure at the end of the comic book I won to confront the creatures responsible for kidnapping ponies and replacing them with pod ponies. (I’ve been thinking about getting that second issue for the past few weeks. Yeah, I’m pretty lame. LOL!)

I drew a couple more drawings of Candy del Rio before the event ended for the evening in order to make way for the start of the Academy Awards party at Chief Ike’s Mambo Room.

I was still in the process of eating this bowl full of nachos when the event ended so I stayed around for the start of the Oscars party. The front door of Chief Ike’s Mambo Room had a giant Oscar statue and a red carpet for visitors to walk on as they entered the place.

All of the TV screens were tuned to ABC, which carried the Academy Awards this year.

2013 Academy Awards

I remembered hearing chuckles and jaws dropping open when host Seth McFarlane sang his opening show-stopping tune "We Saw Your Boobs."

I only stayed around long enough to finish with my nachos and to learn which film won the Oscar for "Best Animated Feature Film". (It was Brave. Having seen that film, I can say that it deserved it.)
