They don’t only deliver the goods a saucy single might borrow to take to a beach party or weekend barbecue cray-cray. Massive crews (and, yes, families) are a big part of the member base, often booking the backyard movie night package, which includes a movie screen, projector, folding table, another table for the goodies, gourmet popcorn kernels, movie theater-style popcorn maker, cotton candy machine, blanket, inflatable couch, low lawn chair, blankets, and a portable fire pit. Boom: party.
Even casting director Stacey Snow impresses her industry friends with her alfresco screenings at her Highland Park home. “When I have [movie] parties, people are like, ‘What?' They’re just tripped out.” She also gets the Pool Party experience delivered to take on weekends in Palm Springs, and adds on the snow cone maker to different orders, because everyone loves snow cones.
Of course, for boozy elements, there’s a rentable frozen margarita maker you can throw in. If your cocktail preferences are a little more upmarket, there’s a separate package, the Crafty Cocktails experience, to make a proper Moscow mule, copper mugs and all. And if you have no idea how to pour anything but beer from a bottle, don’t fear -- every experience has a GIF for guidance on assembly or use, dropped in your inbox.
