Honestly, this seems like pretty scanty information with which to pay $35-42 for an event. How can you tell which ones are worth going to and which aren't?

Maybe you guys should offer a giveaway to a couple events :P


@frankd4 Maybe you're right, when some people can't behave themselves especially outsiders during  Urban Beach Week. Can't mention color or race because  I can be called racist , opps my family is 1 big melting pot. I guess the entrance is open for civil people.

frankd4 topcommenter a butt-in-skee here i would have to ask how into the arts are you ? otherwise restrict yourself to the FREE admissions for a taste - not to say the HIGH admission price is or isn't worth it there is a LOT available for FREE to look at and spend time observing including some stuff that is just plain junk (and yet that might be your thing)

however IF you hate crowds more than you need the $40 then by all means pay up and chill out
