Why are your city guides behind a paywall?
We think digital publications and other travel apps depend far too much on having a huge number of people look at ads. As a result, they often resort to publishing click-bait, producing low-effort content, and shoving pop-up ads in your face.
At the end of the day, we don’t think you need to read another article about the top 50 hamburgers in Chicago, and we certainly don’t want to devolve into doing anything like that to keep the lights on. Instead, we want to ensure that our core focus is on producing high quality original content, and providing an excellent service that makes it easy to make the most of your free time.
How does the text message concierge work?
After you become a member, we provide you with a number that you can text, which will put you in direct contact with us. Anything we can do to get you out and about in Chicago, we’ll help you do.
The concierge is active from 9am to 9pm everyday. While we can’t promise immediate turnaround on all requests, we’ll do our best to respond and provide you a solution as quickly as we can. For now, the only thing we ask is that you give us at least 24 hours to respond back to you. In most cases we’ll get back to you a lot sooner.
