Bursts of Color - And... We're Back!

Bursts of Color - And... We're Back!
By Geoff Donaker • Issue #52 • View online
It’s Memorial Day weekend 2021: the sun is shining and most of our cities are back in business! As you think about summer fun and taking an overdue break from Zoom, here are a few services you may wish to check out. Caveat that I’m an investor in them.

Coming to Chicago this summer

Fanimal: Live Event Tickets
Ballgames and concerts are back! When you’re ready for tickets, see Fanimal. Same inventory as old guard sites like StubHub, minus the 10-20% fees. You can also use their cool group-buying feature to avoid collecting money from all your friends.
Bounce: Check Your Bags
Visiting for the day and don’t want to drag your roller-bag around? Bounce lets you store luggage with hotels, shops and UPS stores for a few hours or days at a time. Works in cities all over the world, and can also be used for package acceptance in your hometown.
Peek: Tours & Activities
When you’re ready for a new adventure on your vacation or staycation, see Peek. It offers a stunning range of guided activities around the world, from food tours in San Diego to cave tubing in Belize… many of them with availability as early as this weekend.
Hipcamp: Camping & Cabins
Stay in the great outdoors: from tent camping to yurts, cabins and even treehouses. When you use Hipcamp, you’re also investing money in rural economies: supporting private landowners, farmers and ranchers who use the extra income to keep their land wild. 
Instawork: Flexible Work Platform
With weddings and events booming, caterers and hotels are eager for help. If you have a friend or family member who’s interested in a side hustle beyond ride-sharing, have them check out Instawork. Signup is easy, and they might make a quick $200 on a weekend event. And on the other side: please also feel free to share this with folks who manage hospitality businesses and need extra staff.
Enjoy the sunshine! 😎
