When it opened its doors a few year back, Morningside's Southside Tea Room quickly proved a hub of unique activities. And while the joint has had quite the facelift — absorbing Death Valley next door, reconfiguring the space and serving up a new menu — that isn't changing. Yes, that means that Plaster Fun House is back.
Reviving an old favourite, Southside is bringing back its beloved Plaster Fun House nights — an evening where patrons can get crafty and make something they can treasure. Pick from a statue on offer, get into the arty spirit and see what you can whip up! You'll have your own multi-coloured owl, skull, zombie, mermaid, Batman or bulldog in no time.
Not just a one-off affair, the new series will take place monthly on Friday nights. The first gets underway from 6pm on August 17, and keep your eyes peeled for future chances to paint a plaster figurine with glitter while you chow into some seriously delicious brisket, mac 'n' cheese and more.
