Welcome to the First (of Many) Communiques
Welcome. Welcome. Welcome to our first ever Cabana Club Communique. We wanted to start a newsletter of sorts to focus on ways to love your pool (or spa) again. What do we mean by that?
Well, once your water is crystal clear and perfectly ready for a swim, our guess is that you’ll want to spend more time in your pool (or spa). While it’s fine to just relax and have a glass of your favorite beverage (adult or otherwise), our guess is that you might want to do other things. So, we decided to cull the web for interesting stories, ideas, things that amuse us, and also educate us related to pools, spas, and the backyard lifestyle.
Pool Season is Here!
Memorial Day is usually the official launch of pool season and I’m sure a lot of you have been eager to get in the pool. If you have not yet opened your pool, check out this great checklist from Joel Peters. If you’re in your pool as you read this, then you can safely ignore Joel’s post and read on.
Concerts by the Carload: Live Nation Looks to Take Drive-In Shows Bigger This Summer — Why not try your driveway or backyard?
We never thought we’d see drive-ins come back but, hey, why not. I guess Keith Urban’s glee at performing for socially distanced fans at a drive-in theater in Tennessee may soon be shared by more major artists. Looks like Live Nation has a plan to use amphitheater parking areas for shows that could bring the automotive concert concept (we hate the name) into the mainstream. You could do something similar in your backyard by getting an inflatable screen so that you can maintain social (physical) distancing with your cohort, your pod, your bubble, your squad, or your quaranteam.
The video is pretty darn cool. We’re not as speechless as the author but still, it’s worth a look.
We’re big fans of tacos. These recipes are stellar and perfect for pool parties. The even cooler thing (if that’s even a word) is that they have a simple recipe card you can print. I’d still read through the article because there are some great tips in there.
Remember those AOL CD’s that were in every single magazine? Kinda annoying right since if you were already online, why waste a CD? Those inserts are called covermounts and now some magazines are adapting to the times and sending seeds. Pretty good idea.
We’re curious, do you have a vegetable garden in your backyard? If so, why not send us a picture. We’d love to see what you’re growing.
