On the Society of Illustrators main page I always see a sidebar advertising their Jazz and Sketch night, and while it sounded intriguing, those things can be kind of intimidating and I didn't go out of my way to see what it was all about. Finally, probably out of frustration of wanting better subjects than my cats, I decided to check it out, why not? And absolutely loved it. The drawing venue feels like a cozy parlour, a totally relaxed and relaxing atmosphere -a live band plays, you can drink wine, and it's completely non judgemental. The Society has it every Tues and Thurs; I will definitely be going back- you should stop by!
