Thank You for Being a MEN

MEN add to an already exciting reveal of ArtHouse's new rooftop.


From all reports, ArtHouse's new digs are crazy sweet and even worth the time the local house du arte had to be closed. Well, this weekend sees a slew of grand re-opening events and tonight's features an after party. And you can win tickets right here.

Truly, it's less a remodel and more a stunning reimagining. And the big reveal/celebration occurs all weekend, all leading to the free public grand re-opening on Sunday.

Tonight the big ticket is the $1,000 dinner (there'd better be chips & salsa). And we've got tickets to the after party (still available for purchase for $125). The online purchase for both is closed but tickets are still available at the door.

We've heard on good authority how gasp-inducing the new rooftop is and we know first-hand the power of electrocutiepies MEN. Dang, Ginger, nice 'do. Personally, I am so giddy about this, I may just fall off the roof. Join us! So we can do this one of many ways. We can give a pair or we can give the two tickets to two hot singles lookin' for trouble.

Incomplete information may disqualify you, so please read all instructions.

CLICK HERE TO EMAIL your name, email address, phone number, whether you want one ticket or a pair, tell us about your favorite work of art, and put MEN! in the subject header. We'll draw the winner at 1pm from the batch. (If the link does not work for you, email: Bonne chance!!
