Why the shut down?
- There isn't enough interesting events happening every week to go around
- Event posted are too short-lived (usually posted days before the event, and became irrelevant within a week)

Is there still Hope?
At 1st look Event seems like a good idea, but there isn't enough content to go around, and too short-lived.
It might be hard to sustain by itself as an independent entity, perhaps it would better served its purpose as a complementary service (e.g. festival events in a travel site, running events in a sport site, etc.)
