Mystery sells tickets for Vacant Lansing event

"Expect Nothing" promises the website for Vacant Lansing (www.vacantlansing.com). But there must be something going on.

The $20 general admission tickets to the Feb. 29 "Inaugural VACANT Experience" are already sold out; you can pay $150 for "two entry tickets; VIP seating; framed, limited-edition silk-screened poster, and other enticing VIP loot."

What you´re getting for your money is anyone´s guess. Vacant´s violet-colored logo of a blindfolded tiger is cryptic. Even the address of the event is a mystery: The site says it will happen "Somewhere in REO Town," between 7 and 11 p.m., but gives no more information.

 “You´ll need to use your wits and connections to figure this one out,” notes a blurb on the site. “Be prepared for an all-new kind of experience. Don´t worry, we´ll be in touch with a hint or two.”
