The Legal Creative will host a Celebrity Bartending Night from 5 to 8 p.m. Monday at Carmella’s Cafe, 850 E. Western Reserve Road.
Pop artist Chris Yambar and television newscaster Stan Boney will be the featured bartenders for the event, which will be hosted by TV personality Lauren Lindvig.
Yambar is a comic-book artist-writer and creator who has worked on such characters as Bart Simpson, Popeye, Spongebob Squarepants, I Dream of Jeannie, Mister Magoo and Mr. Beat. He is a speaker on the lecture circuit on the topics of progressive art, time management and practical theology. He will serve up drink specials as well as original coaster caricatures.
Boney, a WYTV-TV 33 news anchor and host of “Academic Challenge,” will join Yambar behind the bar. Lindvig, of “WFMJ Today” will host the festivities, which will include a display of Yambar’s work, photography by Tony Nicholas, and a raffle.
No reservations are required for the event, which is a fundraiser for The Legal Creative, a nonprofit corporation currently in the process of applying for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status. All proceeds, including bar tips, will cover the fees involved in the application process. An anonymous donor has agreed to match all funds raised during this event, up to $1,500.
The Legal Creative was founded by Atty. Denise Glinatsis Bayer earlier this year. It is the area’s first and only business, legal and educational resource that caters exclusively to artists. Its goal is to build an economic relationship between artists and the community so that artists are active, engaged, organized and valued for the contributions they make.
