Update: And they're gone. All tickets have been sold. Congrats to those who acted in time, and let this be a lesson to the rest of you.
Houston Press publisher Stuart Folb tells us that it's getting down to nut-cutting time when it comes to buying tickets for Saturday's Artopia event: Basically buy them now or forget about it.
In past years tickets were sold at the door, but that's not going to be an option this time. So if you don't get online or on the phone quickly, don't go to the Winter Street Studios to try to see the dance, music or fashion shows or try any of the huge array of restaurant samplings available.
The event has quickly grown to become an annual must-do in Houston, but if you don't act fast, you won't be doing anything but moaning.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
