With this app, you can find out what is happening near you. It involves things that usually require a bit of local knowledge. They are events that people in the area are usually privy to, which makes it ideal for people who are new in town. It tells of annual events, but more importantly, it tells of beer events, outdoor movie screenings, festivals, farmer’s markets, live music, scavenger hunts and meetups. They are a great place to meet people because it is more acceptable to turn up on your own. The app has some great information, such as how on any one day, there are over 11,000 events going on in Los Angeles.
