Seattleites don’t need a reason to party. But if they did, here’s one more: Seattle has been ranked one of the top party cities in the nation.

Evite, a digital event-planning service,  said Thursday that Seattle is on its annual list of the Top 20 Party Cities of 2016.

Seattle came in ninth with 41,976 events recorded by Evite, beating out Washington, D.C., Dallas, Portland, Denver and San Francisco.
