If you love exploring what cities and neighborhoods have to offer, then you know that finding events can be like wading through molasses – there’s a million and one things to do, but you can never seem to get where you want to go.

Finding events is often a time-consuming and frustrating process, as searches usually just result in information overload: long lists of irrelevant events and content that are nearly impossible to sort through. GetSpontaneous, a new event recommendation engine that caters to your personal interests, streamlines the process and helps you discover local events and activities that you’ll actually want to do.

Making the search quick and easy, GetSpontaneous’ simple interface helps you find happy hours, parties, live music, kickboxing classes, you name it. Just zoom and drag the map to browse events in a specific city or neighborhood.

Every time you “plus” an event that you like, GetSpontaneous takes note, learning your interests and tailoring suggestions to your personal preferences. The more you interact with the site, the better it gets at recommending awesome things. You can also easily share an event with friends, getting them in on all the cool, underhyped, underground happenings and showing off your city expertise.

Whether you’re a travel junkie or just looking for something fun to do on a Sunday afternoon, GetSpontaneous is an efficient and personalized way of discovering local events. The site is currently in private beta, but you can sign up here.

GetSpontaneous is one of our featured startups at the Tech Cocktail DC Summer Mixer event, which is following our Mixology Conference on June 16.  If you can’t make it to the conference, be sure to stop by the mixer to meet the team behind this fun new technology!
