If it seems that your inbox has been overloaded with Evites of late, you're not imagining things. Houston has been declared party capital of the country by Evite in a data review that analyzed the habits of its users in 39 cities.
Houston ranks No. 1 in both categories studied in the first annual list of the Top 10 U.S. Party Cities. We're head of the pack in the list of "Party Animals: Which Cities Have the Most 'Yes' RSVPs?" (815,290) and tops in "Weekend Warriors: Which Cities Party Hardest on the Weekends?" To date in 2015, more than 55,000 party hosts invited guests to events through the on-line invitation and party planning service.
Austin came in third in both categories, right behind second-ranking Chicago. Austin recorded more 706,253 "yes" responses in the past year and scheduled 48,526 weekend bashes via Evite. Dallas ranked 10th in the most "yes" RSVP category.
Rounding out the top 10 featured in the announcement of the first annual Top 10 U.S. Party Cities were San Diego, New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, San Francisco, Washington D.C. and Dallas. Other top scorers in the weekend warrior category were San Diego, Atlanta, San Jose, New York, Los Angeles, Seattle and a close tie for 10th were Washington D.C. and San Francisco.
“As many of us get ready for the busy holiday party season, these Top Party Cities have clearly been training for this moment all year long,” said Victor Cho, Evite CEO, in a statement.
