There are absolutely no Groupons or LivingSocial deals. The only option for event tickets is pre-purchasing through NIGHTOUT via the ticketing URL above. Don't wait, we have a strict limit of attendees given our venue's capacity and expect this event to sell out and exceed last year's 600+ attendees! We do not expect tickets will be available on the event day. Ticket prices increase once the $35 tickets for each time slot are sold opening up the $45 tickets, then $55 and finally $65. It is based on demand, not a specific date.
