This place is lovely. They play good music, it's a pleasant place to spend time in, the employees are knowledgeable and helpful and so forth. The cost of sitting ($8) isn't so bad, especially if you can finish in one sitting. The cost of the pieces you paint starts to add up, although getting the irregular pieces for no cost has been my favorite strategy. Hey, you go and have a great time and when it's over, you can always give the pieces as gifts when you get them in a week or so.
