Wed. 3/17: Feminist Alternative to St. Pat's Day: Punk crafts, film shorts, subversive song!

CRAFTERMATH presents an LES alternative to St. Patrick's Day mayhem in a hybrid boutique/bar.
Punk crafts, film shorts, subversive song!

From 7 til 9pm-ish:

The CRAFTERMATH creative forces sell punk crafts and unusual art at a neighborhood treat-to-behold that features emerging designers and vintage goods. Our artwork is affordable, along w/the drinks. Happy Hour features a $ 5 beer and whiskey combo. We'll show a collage of films by NYC underground filmmaker LISA HAMMER on the gold-framed movie screen. JESSICA DELFINO will share a new song, perhaps on an uncommon instrument. You can celebrate Women's History Month w/us, and still make it in plenty of time to get out to some place far less cool-looking to drink your green beer - if you still insist!
Hoping you can join CRAFTERMATH for exciting and unusual fun times!

The Dressing Room Boutique and Bar
75A Orchard Street (btw. Broome & Grand Sts.)
