Looking to throw the most precious wedding ever? In need of a location for that indie film on a shoestring budget? Or just looking for a quiet staycation? Look no further than Eventup, which just launched yesterday in San Francisco.
The site was created by former MySpace CEO Mike Jones' tech studio Science in Los Angeles and expanded to New York before starting up in San Francisco.
Some prime listings include Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe's Home, the World's Only Floating Island, the house from Mrs. Doubtfire, Jimi Hendrix's Apartment, the de Young Museum, the Flood Mansion, lots of swanky hotels, restaurants and museums, and several little quaint private residences. As Eventup's press release notes, it's been called both Opentable for parties and Airbnb for events. We certainly wish it was around when we were planning our charmingly disorganized DIY wedding.
As Technorati notes, it's free to list locations, and Eventup procures a 10% fee for any events booked through their service. According to Yahoo, Eventup manages the entire booking process, "from scheduling a walk-through to booking the location for your event, offering venue owners insurance options to safeguard their property. The company’s customer support care is available 24/7 to answer questions from both venue owners and booking guests to make the event planning process more efficient."
