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 also join weekly party like Silent Disco's. What is a Silent Disco or Quiet Clubbing? Each person receives a pair of wireless headphones. This allows you to adjust the volume and choose between up to three DJs by flicking a switch.

Do you like listening to: Top40, Trance, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Latin, Salsa, merengue, Bachata, Rap, Electronic, Line Dancing, 80's, 90's, and everything else? Then Quiet Clubbing is for you...

Don't worry about coming out alone, that's what most people do... Quiet Clubbing is very SOCIAL! You need to experience it to understand!
