Play with Barbies

If you’re one of those kids who frequently removed the heads from your Barbie dolls, then this event is for you. Each year, Doc’s Clock in the Mission hosts a Barbie Mutilation Night to benefit charity. Five dollars gets you a fresh barbie and some art supplies, and you’ll spend the night drinking and getting creative with Barbie’s look. Starts at 7:30.
