I recently discovered an app called timeRAZOR which has been revamped and relaunched as Gravy! The Hyper Local App is available for Free to iPhone and Android users and allows you to find fun events - lots of which are free - happening nearby! You can also save events and select to have them saved directly to your own personal calendar on your iPhone (personally love that option!) and if you want to search by what you are in the mood for you can search by five Categories - Whatever, Lively, Classy, Brainy and Playtime - and currently trending events.

Gravy Highlights for Sunday, April 21st listed below! Click for details.
