The Bottle & Brush Art Bar wants to remind you they have a lovely place to relax and enjoy a glass of wine or craft beer with your friends. They’ve recently added some leather class projects to their monthly DIY days, but want to remind you that you don’t have to craft or paint at all to take some time for yourself. They’ve also expanded their gift shop to include several lines of quality gifts by women-owned businesses. Recently they added the Buffalo Girls Salvage, which is a unique line of jewelry made by spent bullet casings from salvaged police officers and federal law enforcement.
The wine bar is serving up a new selection of high quality wines and beers every four to six weeks. You can sample them with their wine flights and even purchase a bottle to go. On Wine Down Wednesdays, they offer special discounts, too.
Don’t be afraid to register for a painting class because you think you aren’t artistic. Bryan Haynes makes it fun and there is no pressure to be a master artist. Most of the painters are first timers just looking for a night out with their friends or something new to do for date night. If you haven’t been there, be sure to stop by and tell them the paper sent you.

It’s not always easy to be enthusiastic, especially when it seems like you’re the only one with more work than you think you could possibly handle.
Sometimes life, work, family or activities can drain your energy. However, we can keep our enthusiasm at a high. The following strategies should help keep you motivated:
Be enthusiastic. Many times, we condition ourselves to be negative. We are afraid of being viewed as being overly enthusiastic or unrealistic. Some believe this will soften the blow of any problems or difficult situations that come along. Yet, by simply being enthusiastic, it eventually becomes real. Others pick up on enthusiasm, become excited themselves, and then give their enthusiasm back. It becomes a beautiful circle of energy.
Don’t criticize, condemn or complain. And don’t put up with people who do. Another person’s negativity affects your own. It becomes a negative, ongoing cycle that is easy to begin, but can be difficult to come out of. Don’t fall for it from the beginning. Consciously decide to generate enthusiasm.
