At the height of their popularity in the mid-1950s, fans enjoyed the Droodles TV show, a Droodles daily newspaper column, Droodles magazine features, Droodles cocktail napkins, even Droodles in ads for Lucky Strike cigarettes. With a few squiggles in a simple square, these clever drawings created absurd scenes like "Ship arriving too late to save a drowning witch" which Frank Zappa used for an album cover.

Join us in the courtyard for an interactive night of revisiting this blast from the past and play along captioning some Droodles. Actor/comedian Jason Stuart will be the MC for the "Caption the Droodle" contest and it is sure to be a fun time! The winner of the best caption will receive a free copy of the book and there will be Droodle swag for the runners up, all courtesy of the publisher.
