Brain Butter and PBR

Thursday, Feb. 11


According to a study from the University of Illinois at Chicago, subjects with a blood alcohol content of .071-.082 perform fasterthan sober subjects on tests related to changes in visual scenes and word association. That's right: booze makes you more creative.

Put that theory to the test Thursday, Feb. 11 with Brain Butter and PBR at 10th Street Station—a coloring contest featuring the adult coloring book Brain Butter, illustrated by local artists Noble Hardesty and Kelly Knopp, of Boise-based Swell Artist Collective. For $20 you'll get a book and a Pabst, and a chance to win some schwag. The event is 21+ and, while some supplies will be provided, entrants are encouraged to bring their own. Just remember, that creativity boost maxes out at .08 BAC. Any higher and you'll have trouble staying inside the lines.
