For people looking for an alternative to Facebook events that isn't spammy like evite and the like, I recommend checking out

It requires no login, basically you provide an email address, you get a unique editing URL, you make a nice looking event form, and people can RSVP there. Your event and all related info is deleted from their DB 2 weeks after the event is over.


@darius Hi all! Super chuffed you've found gathio useful.

Something to think about.
