JULY 30 | 9:30 pm - Midnight

NOSH and GOCA are throwing another party and we want you there. Again! We're bringing back all the goodies from last time--DJ Whitey, special GOCA cocktails from NOSH, giant Jenga--and spicing it up with more cool stuff.

Mostly, we're adding lots of art. 

Meet Patrick Bohnen, Amber Marchlowska, Courtney Matthews and Adam Schendzielos - four young, local and supremely talented artists. July 30 is a one night show of their work, Masquerade: Sins, Secrets, and Confessions. Their site specific installations and sculptures are not to be missed. You'll also have a chance to visit Formal Elements at GOCA121 (if you haven't already).

Want an even sweeter deal? Call Nosh (719.635.6674) and make a reservation for dinner on July 30th - BEFORE the party. Tell them you're there with GOCA. They'll give you happy hour prices on drinks all night long (if you're a member - so JOIN NOW!) AND they're putting together a special GOCA Experience menu. Ask for it.

REMEMBER: 50% of party profits benefit GOCA--so stay late and drink up! Responsibly, of course.
