Last Friday, Omaha celebrated the body of work of Love Drunk Studio at the launch the Airbnb Pop-up Shop. Located in a bay near 12th and Jackson streets in the Old Market, the pop-up shop will host a series of events during weekends all month long.
In addition to watching dozens of Love Drunk videos and enjoying live music from local singer-songwriters Patrick Mainelli and James Maakestad, the crowd snacked on bites from Jackson Street Tavern while sipping beer from Brickway Brewery & Distillery and coffee from Aromas Coffeehouse.
Representatives of Airbnb — an online community marketplace for people to list, discover and book unique accommodations around the world — were also on hand helping boost awareness of the usefulness of Airbnb during upcoming mega events like the Berkshire Hathaway shareholders meeting and College World Series.
