Art night at the Cove? Figure drawing in a bar?

So we're all use to art in coffee shops... art openings, galleries, gatherings, etc. Seems like a natural fit by now. Then the other day I was at Otherlands Coffee bar and I saw numerous flyers for Art Night at the Cove. So every Thursday night from 9:30pm to 12:30am for a $3 cover they are going to have live models and drink discounts. Huh. I might have to check that out.

Seems like an unlikely location for drawing - small space, low lighting, etc. But then I think of the P&H Cafe as an unlikely place to have a gallery (actually Dwayne Butcher refers to it as The P and H Center for the Arts). P&H has been doing these art openings on the first Friday of every month since Jan 2005. They pack the place out during these art openings, and its more difficult to get selected to show there than at most of the area coffee shops.
