We also have it listed out on Eventful, Eventbrite and a few other places…but just as a note (since there seems to be some confusion)…you don’t actually have to grab tickets from Eventbrite to come to our events. Seriously. We just list our events out there because…well, because we’re still experimenting, that’s why. If and when you actually do ever have to grab tickets there, we’ll let you know, we promise.
