They say the best ideas in the world are hatched on bar napkins, but they've obviously never seen your dream journal. Reasserting that case, ProjectParties.com
Conceived all-too-appropriately by a couple of Chi nightlife vets on a scribbled-upon bar napkin, PP aims to connect you with the ideal party venue to suit the assorted tastes of you and your friends, like a free virtual wedding planner but this time J-Lo doesn't bang your fiance.
Start by sifting your way through various criteria, from general concerns like neighborhood, type of venue, and type of dress to hyper-specific demands like reggae music, finger sandwiches, and pinball, or as you call it, Tuesday.
From there you're given a list of options (the more general your criteria, the more robust your choices) and prompted to peruse a calendar that reveals what dates they have open and the various drink/party packages they have available, even if you always insist on providing your own "party package"
Once you've landed on a deal that tickles your fancy you can book directly through the site and make with the email invites, either imported from your contacts or inputted manually, much in the way that you recorded the one about a stable of rollerblading unicorns while falling, naked.
