The news, it’s exhausting. Life in these United States has taken a turn for the deeply weird. And the relentless heat of summer isn’t helping.

You know what would help? Fluffy white clouds as painted by human Quaalude and master of gauzy landscapes, the late, great Bob Ross.

The fine people at Full Circle Bar (1810 East 12th St) would like you to join them each evening from Aug 31 through Sept 2, starting at dusk (around 7:45 p.m.) to paint and drink along with classic episodes of “The Joy of Painting” with Bob Ross.

Here is the thing: the Aug 31 and Sept 1 events are SOLD OUT but a THIRD night has been added. It is free to attend but you must RSVP to attend, do so here.

Remember back when ol’ Bob did MTV bumpers? You can’t tell me the 1990s weren’t great.
