Local champions of creative reuse S.C.R.A.P. are gearing up for this year's Rebel Craft Rumble, a competitive crafting event during which trash talking and bribery are encouraged. If you don't know what "competitive crafting" looks like, here's a mini bout between S.C.R.A.P. volunteers from last year, set to Explode into Colors (don't you miss them?):
This year's craft-off is scheduled for October 16 (that's a Wednesday) at the Hollywood Theater, with bouts judged by local personalities from qualified organizations like Destination DIY and CraftyPod, as well as a "Craft Cop," busting crafters for infractions like "lacking enthusiasm" and "poor penmanship." Plus: raffles and—of course—beer. Tickets!
