What to do this week: Drawing at Fatso's on Monday and Nerd Nite on Tuesday

It's a busy week in Lawrence.  Although many are preparing for tournament time, as we are indeed in Jayhawk territory, there are great art events on Monday and Tuesday of this week. 

Monday: Drawing at Fatso's
Fatso's on Massachusetts 7:00
One of our favorite models/photographers, Scarlot Harlot,  will be the star of the Fatso's drawing session on Monday.  The cost is $5.00. Bring drawing supplies.  These drawing sessions, hosted by the Thieves Guild, keep getting better every month.  

History: Nerd Nite on Tuesday

When and Where: Pachamama's, with presentations at 8:00

We are lucky enough to have organizers who take the time to come up with great Nerd Nites in Lawrence. Here is the description for this month: 
We’ll look at the Lawrence region’s history of de/colonization, the centuries long myth of Prester John that propelled the spice trade and the Crusades, and how the dirt and rocks beneath our feet have influenced history.

Presentations include: 

Lies, Damned Lies, and Primary Sources: The Lost History of Prester John by Matt Kirkland

In the Heart of Indian Country: Lawrence and Its De/colonization (Part One)
by Julia Good Fox (Pawnee)

Domineering Boulders: What Geology and the Natural World Have to Say About Our Civilization and Our Culture by Josh Feldman

Nerd Nite will be on Tuesday this month because of the Big 12 tournament. Doors opening at Pachamama's Alton Ballroom at 7 pm with presentations starting at 8 pm!
