Thanks for hunting us again @gillianim! A lot has happened in the past 6 months for Party with a Local - we're currently participating in Techstars Connection, in partnership with AB InBev in New York, and have broadened our focus beyond our travel roots - since we noticed our most active users were using the app in their own cities - just to meet people t… See more

@dan_fennessy the title in the app store suggests that you're focused on New York but the description says otherwise. Why?
Dan Fennessy@dan_fennessy · Founder at Party with a Local
@chrismessina Great question Chris. It's a little bit of both actually - we've always had a global outlook, especially when we were more focused on the travel use case of Party with a Local. Previously all of our growth globally has been organic (mostly from the App stores and WOM), so we just grew wherever there was organic interest in the app. Right now w… See more

@dan_fennessy great work Dan great to see the project is moving along well, I really think events is a brilliant addition to the platform.

I have a few ideas how that could … See more

@suscov That probably would have been one of the team in New York, welcoming you to the community - we personally welcome everyone who signs up :-) We actually have a fairly active community in Lisbon, some Super Locals there have even run Party with a Local events for us, maybe you were just unlucky the days you tried. Did you fill in a full profile? Set a … See more

@dan_fennessy I'll keep using it, maybe I didn't yet get the whole idea behind how it works (consider providing an onboarding screen though).

Also she never replied back after I mentioned that lol. :)
