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.

Whether you want to know if your favorite bar is really crowded or if your favorite restaurant has the special you’ve been waiting for, Whim will let you know. The map feature is really helpful to tailor your experience to where you are. I enjoy sharing my local tips and tricks for the places I frequent the most.
