Oh, but there’s more.

If you’re going to be in the Southwest Houston area sometime tomorrow, drop by SF2 for the One Mic mixer. I’ll have two tickets for anyone interested in attending the Block Party. Yes, that’s right I’m giving away two tickets to the first two people who bring it up to me.

Got it? Good.
