You could charge a ticket price and split the amount with the location, or you could become their event planner on an independent contractor basis. This will allow you to work for an unlimited number of local businesses.
Think about the local MeetUp groups, Social Media Groups, local hobby groups and more. It’s not always about partying. Many bars and restaurants conduct “game nights” which can also be very profitable.
