Not true. The proctor usually sucks. The models are just ok. They usually don't have much experience. It's over crowded. Hard to get a good spot.

For a creative adult outing (i.e., with alcohol and art), head to 3rd Ward (195 Morgan Ave at Stagg St; 718-715-4961, 3rdward.com) for the weekly Drink N' Draw (Wed 8--10:30pm; $15, with a friend $10, includes beer). The staff provides the booze and the model, and all you have to bring is drawing tools and a date. Whether or not you end up with a masterpiece, at least you both get to take home artifacts to pass down to your kids (or hide from the next conquest).
