What You'll Get
Bartending your own party leaves little time to attend to other pertinent duties, such as dressing the cat in her dinner gown, filling the piñata with pudding, and hiding the bloody wrench in Colonel Mustard’s beard. Fully enjoy your festivities with today’s Groupon: for $87, you get four hours of professional party host or bartender service from Hire a Host (a $175 value). This deal is not valid for major holidays, and parties taking place more than 30 miles outside of the Minneapolis/St. Paul area will require an additional travel charge of $1 per mile.
Hire a Host has been helping overtaxed party throwers turn flat fetes into amazing affairs for almost 12 years, earning numerous ISES awards for its excellent party planning. Forgo attempts to berate your party supplies into organizing themselves and let your hired host or bartender do all the legwork of setting up and breathing life into your stylish soiree. The professional emcee will arrive in a classic uniform of white tuxedo shirt, black bow tie, black tuxedo apron, and the barest hint of a Belvedere moustache before greeting guests, taking coats, serving food, and keeping drink glasses topped off. Homeowners can sit back and relax as the hired host or bartender passes hors d’oeuvres, serves dinner, and caters to the individual needs of every party attendee. Like the ending to a student film, customers will later awake from the dreamy splendor of their sensational shindig to find that every plate and counter has been wiped, and every chair and table put away, virtually erasing all evidence of the previous night’s festivities.
The skilled liaison from Hire a Host will allow customers to have as much or as little control over the planning process as they like, allowing for a completely customizable co-hosting experience. Hired hands can stay past the four-hour deal limit for an additional $40 an hour, and additional help to handle colossal coffee klatches and gargantuan galas is also available for the non-discounted rate. Tipping is not included in the deal and should be figured into the retail value of the service, and customers should plan on providing the company two weeks' notice before resigning their managerial duties for an evening.
Hire a Host has been the recipient of numerous awards from the International Special Events Society's Minnesota Star Awards, including Best Use of Entertainment 2009 and Best Social Event Planning 2009.

About Hire A Host
Melanie Vejdani founded Hire a Host more than 14 years ago with a vision of helping clients to plan and execute successful events with as much or as little control as they like. The company's event coordinators map out weddings, parties, or any other type of event in advance and ensure that all goes according to plan. A corps of wait staff takes on tasks such as setting up buffets, protecting them from double-dippers, and cleaning up after events have ended. Bartenders ready glasses for toasting, and valets organize parking situations. Hire A Host also rents out tables, chairs, glassware, and more.
