ABOUT DRINK & DRAW:
Miller Beach, the Region, NWI, and the Chicagoland area is home to a huge creative community. We'd like to invite the creatives, and the community out for our Drink and Draw event.
18th Street's Drink and Draw is a fun way for creatives to get out of the house, show their work, meet other artists and fans, and become acquainted with possible buyers in an open and unbiased environment.
-How does it work for artists?
Do you like to draw, or paint, or decoupage? Come in and make some art while enjoying great beer (or craft cocktails, or soda or water). If you would like, hang what you have created on our display wall to show and sell during the event- there is no commission- you keep all money from the sale. It is a great way to show your work to a whole new audience, gain some new fans, and maybe make some money.
Have premade work? Bring it in a portfolio to show off. We want to keep the display wall open for art that is made at the Drink & Draw. Also make sure to bring business cards to hand out to anyone interested in your work.
If you want to just come in and enjoy a beer and sketch- that is fine as well.
There is no sign up, no paperwork, no fees, no jury, just show up and do your thing.
-How does it work for the public?
Come in and see art being created right before your eyes. If you see something you like you can talk directly with the artist about purchasing it on the spot. Or, maybe you have been wanting a piece of art for your living room- now you have a room full of artists that you can talk to about what you would like.
Sounds great, right? It's because it is!

We are thrilled to welcome Sandra Antongiorgi to 18th Street for a live performance that is sure to get you moving. 7-10pm at our Hammond Brewpub.
(from Sandra's Bandcamp bio): Sandra Antongiorgi is an accomplished singer, songwriter and painter. Singing and playing guitar from the early age of 5, her inherent musical talent is undeniable. Sandra’s voice is raw, powerful and effortlessly smooth. Born into a musical Puerto Rican family, Sandra’s bilingualism and heritage transcend deeply into her music. She has proven herself to be a unique lyricist, delivering genuinely magnetic performances, which reveal a feast of auditory excellence. Performing with a number of talented musicians from around the world, along the way, Sandra gathered influences from traditional Caribbean sounds, Soul, R&B, Rumba and Gitano music, creating her own expression of a World, Latin, Neo-Soul sound.
In 2001, Sandra had the great privilege of being featured as an opening act for Wynonna Judd at the House of Blues in Chicago. In 2004, Sandra also had a song featured on the “Latin Dragon” movie soundtrack. More recently, she opened for the world-renowned Alfonso Ponticelli at Chicago’s Mayne Stage. Sandra is consistently writing music that is rooted in the "sabor" of life, seamlessly creating a brilliant lyrical and melodic synergy. Sandra is currently working in Chicago and New York to finalize the release of her first EP.
