CHICAGO & LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) September 17, 2007
"Hopefully, thanks to PC Magazine, more folks will discover what community already knows, which is that we're the first place to find out what to do, where to go, and who else is going," said Evan Schumacher, CEO of Going.com.
Going.com's inclusion on this exclusive list is just another indication of its rapid growth since first launching in Boston. The Web site now operates in five cities -- Boston, New York, San Francisco, Chicago, and now Los Angeles -- and has grown to over 700,000 unique visitors, a remarkable percentage of the total 20-something demographic in these cities.
Going.com's most recent city launch, in Chicago, has already attracted 120,000 visitors in less than three months. Events range from user-submitted, hard-to-discover underground experiences, to Going.com "members only" showcases featuring Perez Hilton, Lady Sovereign, Bobby Friction, Albert Hammond Jr. of the Strokes, Mario Lopez, Donnie Wahlberg, Hilary Duff, and Lindsay Lohan, as well as hot up-and-coming acts like LCD Soundsystem, and The Teddy Bears.
