Exquisite Corpse happy hour at Xtras!

Announcing a new Meetup for RVA Sketch Group!

What: Exquisite Corpse happy hour at Xtras!
When: Tuesday, May 17,[masked]:30 PM

Where: Xtra's Cafe
3322-B W. Cary St
Richmond, VA 23221

Why: it's fun! Full Moon. Tuesday 1/2 off bottles of wine. Happy hour 4-7.

This will be an evening of the Dada (etc.) game/endeavor Exquisite Corpse.

You may remember it from your youth. A paper is folded into thirds (or less commonly but pictured below, fourths) one person draws the head on the top third and folds it down and marks the connecting lines onto the middle section and passes it on. The next person draws the torso and connecting lines for the legs, the third person draws the legs/feet/lower portion. Then all unfold and laugh and clap and put it on the fridge!

I, Emily, the new organizer, will be At Xtra's Cafe from 5:30-7:30pm at least. Feel free to drop in at any time during or come for the whole duration. In my experience this game entertains all ages, skill levels, and attention spans at the same time. And it's easy to jump into and out of and go at your own pace!

Bring paper and writing utensils (No messy media, please. This is a restaurant). I will have some in case you forget!

Xtra's has a delicious menu with munchies and dinner. Tuesday is half price bottles of wine and every day is happy hour 4-7! I reserved the big table but depending on RSVP we can take up more space if need be. 

Check it out!

    This was an incredible meetup. I have no idea how we did so many Exquisite Corpse drawings. Great group of people, I mean very great group. Extra special thanks and Big-Ups to the Organizer Emily and former organizer Tom.

    Great "first meeting" for me. Although I am a writer, not a drawer, we all had fun with the collaborative drawing exercises. Wonderful job Emily. Keep up the good work.
