What we're about

Ever wanted to do something out of your comfort zone and didn't want to wait for friends to make a decision to join up? Awesome Things to do was formed for that reason in mind while saving some cash. Organizers look at deals offered by discount websites and turn them into events so you don't have to go at it alone and often it's an even better deal when we have a group rate. We're fun, well-organized, and aren't afraid to speak up to vendors who do not hold up to their end of the deal. Most of all, we're sociable. Damn it, we are sociable.

We enjoy making new friends and hope that you meet some great people in this group: just try not to flake and remember to chip in for gas/tolls.
