If you're having trouble keeping your creativity from, shall we say, bubbling over — out of that plastic tub, out of the closet, out of your spare room — Cranky Yellow's Catch & Release Swap Meet is for you. At this crafters' delight, folks bring along their unwanted crafting items to swap, sell or barter for goods they actually will use (and not use just to collect dust). Even if you're building up your crafting closet and are still in need of items to make your creativity come alive, Catch & Release can help you, too, by offering up cool stuff for cheaper than new. It all goes down at 2847 Cherokee Street from 7 p.m. to midnight, with DJs providing the soundtrack. Admission costs $5 if you bring items to swap and $10 if you don't. Learn more by calling 314-773-4499 or visiting www.crankyyellow.com.
