Meet Us In Meatspace At The Houston Web Awards

At Art Attack, we LOVE the Internet. We've obsessed about memes, and scoured for the best of Tumblr so you don't have to. We've even devoted entire categories to it.

And we know our local Internet community. We've profiled people like Etsy maven Komodokat, written about's stunning redesign and mourned the loss of the Art Lies website.

Which is why we're inviting you to the first-ever Houston Web Awards, June 30 at Momentum Audi. We'll be giving away a bunch of awards in a variety of categories, from Photo of the Year and Best Flickr Pool to Best Sex Blogger and Best Use of Video in Entertainment. Our special guest is Fat Tony, who'll also be performing, and the girls from Houston Roller Derby and the guys from Technology Bytes Radio are presenting awards. There will be booze, food sampling, and lots of hi-jinx courtesy of yours truly, and tickets are on sale now.

We want all of you to come, so on Monday we're offering a special Deal Of The Day -- $15 for tickets to the Houston Web Awards. We're selling a limited amount, but that's a great price for a chance to mingle and network with some of Houston's top web luminaries. And us. Can't forget us.

Just go to our Deal of the Day page on Monday to get your tickets. Until then, you can also follow us on Twitter. See you IRL!
