Perfect for finding YOUR spot!
“Started following Rachel in Charleston to find my ideal work flow coffee spot and sure enough the first one I tried was spot on! She recommended Kudu where I could grab some great coffee while I work and then treat myself to a craft beer after finishing to treat myself. 10/10 would recommend!” - johnnie_jim

Ratings and Reviews
Thankful for this app!
This was introduced to me by a friend I met in CHS, Whim is that app that helps me get to covid safe social events and helps me find the deals I’m actually looking for when it comes to food to pick out for the best date spots, or areas that look beautiful. Really cannot go wrong downloading and utilizing this app when is high traffic areas to get to the safest, and most adorable events any day! Another part I love is how posts are updated but saved like a story to your profile.
