It's fun to post my own party and charge for it. Not exactly like Eventbrite, I post my parties for my friends (but I think I can post to the public too). I can now afford a lobster fest. I much rather have $ to buy groceries, set my own menu, than deal with people bringing things. I love it. -Lisa
I made dinner reservations for 6 at a new restaurant I wanted to try. I posted my reservation on Festi. My friends who were free booked. Once I accepted everyone I wanted, I closed the event as full. It's kind of a genius way of getting all 6 spots filled with friends. I didn't get any booking requests from any strangers but I would have entertained the idea.-Joe
Even with Venmo, I still have to ask for people to pay me and that's a pain. I posted- "ordering pizza for dinner who's in". It's nice to know who's committed so I know how much to order. The app handled the money. I just had to accept people's booking requests. That part was kind of fun. -Christine
I was meaning to get together with my friend for a long time but never got around to texting her. I saw her posting for lunch and I happen to be free that day so I just booked. It was so much easier than trying to schedule. I like anything that saves me time. -Jen
I love the flexibility. I posted a bike ride Sat. and then, the next day got an invitation to go to a game at the same time (friend had an extra tix). Since no one booked my bike ride yet, I just changed the time. It was so easy. A posting is so much less commitment than an invitation. Can't believe no one thought of this earlier. -Mike
I booked a great cooking class and we never had to discuss payment. Just like Uber, payment is handled through the app. I just showed up. The automatic calendaring and directions came in handy. You don't get directions until after your booking is accepted. -Pat
