Your “Personal Planner” is on its’ way! (Michael Calabrese)

We use the internet to connect with others all over the world, right?  but what about people, events, and things to do right in your own backyard? More and more Internet users today are seeking out things to do socially during their precious down time. They are searching for local events like a cool jazz concert in the park, a concert in an intimate venue that only the locals are aware of, or just checking out a venues event schedule so they can be prepared for an upcoming exciting event they just have to witness first hand!

This has proven to be a time consuming task looking around multiple sites (Facebook, Area Activity Sites, Online Newspapers, etc, etc).  Wouldn’t it be great if there was one central source to keep up on your areas of interest and let you save them to your calendar and receive reminders without having to scour the internet to plan your evenings, entertainment and events?  A place where you can easily access your personalized list of favorite restaurants, nightclubs and more…. Something easily accessible from your mobile devices offering a quick “click to call” option as well as Maps and directions?  A place to discover new & fun things to do and take a break from the mundane.  Discounts, Coupons, News and more!

Hold on to your seats my friends…My Area Events is looking to bring you all that and more!

Stay tuned… Expected live release date is 6/23
