    Great! The models outdid themselves with the addition of costumes and props, and the comedy and music was top-notch!

    Hi Folks! PLEASE do not bring outside beverages to this event! It's OK at our midtown location (Shetler Studios), but Otto's is a bar, and like any other bar, does not allow outside beverages EVER. Empty soda cans left behind have been understandably irking the bartenders. Besides the great range of exotic drinks and beers (and happy hour prices on beer and Bloody Marys) they offer sodas and other non-alcoholic beverages.

    Are these life models or costumed? And I'm curious whether the DJ will be playing music that's conducive to drawing. 4 hours of trying to draw to contemporary pop, electronica or hip hop blasting would be torture.

      The models are mostly nude, as you can see in the drawings from previous events (check out the drawings in the photos section). Some of them bring props or costume accessories as well, so there's a lot to offer. Our DJ plays an interesting assortment of music, including jazz, pop, folk, 80s, 70s... There's no way of really saying what's conducive to drawing, since everyone has different tastes (I tend towards loud punk rock, myself, but I know that's not everyone's tastes). I can't say I've heard him play any current pop (thank god) or hip hop, though..

      We also have some live music acts playing during the models' breaks.
