I'm Sarah. (Obviously.) And I am an event hoarder.
What's an event hoarder? I don't know. I made up the term, but I know it's me because I have an obsession about knowing what's going on around Calgary. And I thought to myself, (back in January 2019), instead of hoarding all these events to myself like a greedy scrooge I should be sharing them with others so they can go out and enjoy them too! And I also really liked the idea of supporting local businesses by connecting businesses doing awesome things with the people looking for the awesome things. So I'm basically a mediator between two parties looking to find each other.
I grew up in rural Alberta and moved to Calgary about 10 years ago. Sorry, native Calgarians, I'll never be as good as you.
At night, I like to go out and partaaay. I want to be the first person to see the newest, coolest, bestest shit that Calgary has to offer. Hey, some people want to be the first to have the newest iphone and they'll wait in line for hours to do that, not me. Others need to see a movie the night it comes out. Also not me. Everybody's got their thang and my thing is what's happening local. I gotta be the first to know. I GOTTA.
During the day, I regularly hide my hangovers at my day job. (Hahahha just kidding boss if you're reading this, i joke i joke...please don't fire me). I am a researcher.(which basically means a lot of time spent in excel spreadsheets). I do a lot of surveys and focus groups. And am in fact, the best damn researcher you've ever seen (not biased).
I have two cats that are my favorite little buddies in the whole world. I am definitely a cat person and if you show me pictures of your cat I will actually care. If I liked your cat photo on instagram, that was a genuine like, so know that dammit!
Part 1: Getting people out of their comfort zone and out making friends and having new memorable experiences.
Part 2: Supporting local businesses by spreading the word about quality experiences in the Calgary area.
