Chidrink & Cadrawgo Vol. 8

Ho! Ho! Ho! Haw! Haw! Haw! Chidrink! Drink! Drink! Cadraw! Draw! Draw!

True Believers! It’s the most horribly WONDERFUL time of year and we’re ALL IN! So, zip into those PJ’s and dive with us into a pile of toys at our next drink and draw! IT WILL BE JOLLY AF!

It’s Chidrink & Cadrawgo! Chicago’s highest rated basement drink and draw!

What’s a Drink and Draw?
This is a chill-vibes, BYOB event where folks get together and draw in the same space, working on whatever they choose. They are welcome to enjoy the libations they bring and the supplies we provide.

Come Drink! – BYOB. We can’t buy you boozes, but we’ll have some cups and bottle openers if you need them. Do you have to drink? Nope! Actually many of us frequently don’t. (Or just plum forget because we’re so into what we’re drawing.)

Come Draw! – We’ll have simple supplies like paper, pens, pencils, erasers, and markers if you are in need. Work on your own stuff or use one of our prompts. We’ll have prompts! Do you have to draw? Nope!. We have coloring books and crayons if you just want to come for a chill night in an art space. We’re also happy to give you points in the right direction if you want to learn to draw.

Bring a Friend! – Don’t want to come alone, but don’t have any friends that draw? We’ve got you covered. As we mentioned above we’ll have coloring pages and crayons for your artistically-challenged allies.

Pet Mooge! – Mooge is a doggo. A good doggo. Mooge will be there until Mooge is not, then Mooge will be elsewhere. Do you have a doggo? This event is dog friendly for your well-behave, potty-trained dogs.

Be Who You Are! (unless you’re a jerk or a pre-heart enlarged Grinch) – These events are completely inclusive. We accept and respect everyone exactly as they are. If you don’t share this view (i.e. if you are a jerk or pre-family-vanish Kevin), please do not attend.

When is it?
Month, day from 7-9pm
(It’s the first Saturday of every month for those of you that want to plan in advance. Tell Alexa to add it to your teleportation schedule!)

Where is it?
Graham Crackers Comics in Lakeview – 3162 N Broadway St, Chicago, IL 60657
It’ll be in the basement, which is different from your parent’s basement where you keep all those issues of X-Men #1 you bought back in 1991 thinking they’d be worth something. It’s where Graham Crackers Comics in Lakeview keeps all their issues of X-Men #1 they bought back in 1991 thinking they’d be worth something. Joke’s on us!

What else can I expect?
Graham Crackers Comics let’s us host this event after store hours. So if you get there and the door is locked Eric will have his number posted on the door. Call him and he’ll let you in. Sometimes the event goes a little past 9pm. At the end of the event Joe will yell “PENCILS DOWN” and we’ll go round-robin sharing what we’ve worked on. There is no judgement, only encouragement. Still, if you’d rather not share, just say “sugarpeas” and we’ll move on the next person.

What does Chidrink & Cadrawgo mean?
Since “Chicago Drink & Draw” and “Drink & Draw Chicago” seemed to be taken already, we did the only sensible thing and mushed them all together. Thus, CHIDRINK & CADRAWGO! Don’t worry, it gets easier to say the more you drink. Just kidding! We can’t even say it sober. You try!
