You know those sudden bursts of creativity inspired by one too many tequila funnels and 151 chasers? Suddenly, you were born to dance like Michael Jackson and can hit notes that Mariah Carey never knew existed. But if youre of the inebriated Picasso variety, more excited over a Sharpie than a karaoke machine, Drinking and Drawing at the News Lounge welcomes your drunk ass. Heres the deal: Youll be handed ten blank note cards by Spencer Morin, head of Miami World Cinema Centers animation department and creator of the event. Youll then have 20 minutes to doodle whatever outlandish fantasies occupy your mind. The catch is that you have to sketch a continuation of the imaginings of the previous drunk drawer, who can be anyone from the nights guest artist (Garbage Pail Kids illustrator Luis Diaz) to an amateur who hasnt touched crayons since kindergarten. At the end of the night, all cards will be compiled into a short animation quite possibly the only morning-after Internet vid from which you wont have to untag yourself.
