The week went by really quickly! Besides lots of drawing (I still have to scan my sketch book sometime) I went to see Chris Koza at the Main Room in downtown. Bought some really awesome posters the concert by a local artist, Andrew Turman and completely took the skin off both my knees when I was biking around. :( Over all it was fun fun and BTW Bandaid brand makes a kick ass wide knee band aid!
Main room club!
They play animations during intermission.

So I did two useful things today: 1) I applied for my US Social Insurance # so I can get paid, unfortunately it should be coming in 4 weeks.
2) On the spur of the moment, I got a cheap seat at Eddie Izzard's show that was at the Orpheum. He did a 2 hour long stint with no breaks and was extremely, EXTREMELY funny!

I decided to get a little life drawing done and joined a small group called Dr. Sketchy's anti-art school. It was life drawing in a bar with booze, thematic lighting and burlesque dancers (named Lady Ascensia and Tomahawk tassles) for models. All in all, it was A LOT of FUN! - See more under.
Definitely not one of my better pics, but I had downed 2 pints already...and it was really dark.
Both Tomahawk and Ascensia (she a poet) posing together. I had one more pic I really liked, but one of the models really liked it so I gave it to her :)
The drawing set-up, bar room seating!
Yes people actually sat down and drew like this!
They gave out supplies....
We had a host and the models on the stage! There were drawing contests and I ended up winning twice, I got a gift certificate for Smitten Kitten and......
A vibrating massaging ducky.
And a Kama Sutra bath set complete with lubricant (or bath gel). What I really wanted was the $25 coffee gift certificate...

Watched IRON MAN today and all I can say is "WOW". Highly. Highly Recommended. On a lighter note I ended up eating at "White Castle" and to be honest, Harold and Kumar got gyped, burgers were very thin and overly salty and really, all I thought was I should gone to the Wendy's a block back.Read more!

Where to go where the 9 to five grind is over? Midnight coffee shops and crime bookstores. See read more for more info!
Since I've gotten here, I found some pretty sweet spots to hang out. One is the Bad Waitress cafe it's a superhero themed dinner that's open till midnight. Offers free wifi.
Another place is the Spyhouse, another midnight coffee/wifi place (coffee is really good, though midnight coffee drinking isn't that smart!)
I've also gone to a really cool bookstore - nothing but crime stories.
A really tiny MCAD gym (seriously it's a sections studio space with machines) that make Sheridan's gym look huge!
And the following pic was something that I couldn't resist taking.
