Much like the Oracle, HipGuide answers visitors' tough questions here.

Event Planning
Q:Where is a cool spot in the city to host our firms X-mas party?

-- "MP in NYC"

A:Madre de dios.

Corporate event planning is NOT the same thing as writing about new openings.

Dear Reader, this is my number one pet peeve email to receive.
Repeat after me:


We cannot provide free location scouting advice for you.
This is the PAID work of many talented event production folks who are experts in things that will need to be covered- number of guests, catering, security etc. etc.
For example, we have great faith in our friends at Milktwist Productions or if you need an itinerary, Fast Metropolis is great.

Pretty please stop asking me where you need to throw your bachelorette/company holiday/rehearsal dinner/college reunion etc etc because while we have the capability to plan an event that would blow your socks off, it's not what we do and we def can't do it for free!

Take the HipTips and run!
