If you’re a regular Eventbrite user, you probably know about our excellent Event Evangelists, who run around their respective cities—SF, LA, Chicago and DFW—meeting event organizers, planning events of their own, and highlighting top gatherings for you to attend. Whether you’re planning an event (or thinking about it), or just looking for something to do, they’re an awesome resource. And since it’s Friday afternoon and you’re probably looking for weekend plans, we asked them to share two top events in each of their cities.
