Hamptons are Around the Corner

hamptons crowdtilt

It’s that time of year New Yorkers collectively have one seasonal trip creeping on their minds – the Hamptons. It’s the destination everyone flocks to on the weekends over summer, and groups of friends are starting the preparation now. When we were out in NYC the other week plenty of people were discussing their Hamptons prep strategy (read: along with pooling money from their friends, hitting the gym on the regular and starting some sort of cleansing-esque eating habits were also commonplace).

With Crowdtilt, we want you to focus on the fun parts and fund your trip with your friends without the hassle. Crowdtilt is the easiest way to collect money from your group, whether it’s for a weekend in the Hamptons, Lake Tahoe, or a weekend boat charter. Here are some recommendations for creating your Hamptons campaign:

  • The Tilt Amount is Your Friend: No money exchanges hands until the minimum has been reached. This is a great way to ensure you’ll have the money for your deposit upfront, and you’ll need a certain amount of people to commit to the weekend in order to make it happen. Once you surpass your tilt amount, you can use new thresholds of funding to cover additional costs for the group (like included groceries and booze).

  • Social Proof: When everyone can see that their friends are contributing, they’re more inclined to contribute, too. And if your friends have the Crowdtilt app on their phone, they’ll get a push notification once each friend throws down for the campaign creating even more social momentum!

  • Sliding Costs: You can set up your campaign for flexible pricing, so the more people you have contributing, the less you spend. You can set a minimum number of people that must contribute to the weekend, and once that goal is met (and the trip “tilts,”) each additional person will dynamically lower the total amount each group member pays.

Top 5 Group Dinners + Brunches

Whether it’s a birthday party, bachelorette, showing out-of-towners a good time or a reunion amongst friends or family, large dinners and brunches are great ways to bring people together and connect. Collecting funds from everyone for a large group can be a total pain though! That’s why we’ve seen thousands of groups tilting large group dinners and brunches – it takes the hassle out so you can spend more time enjoying your food (and drinks)! Here are some of our favorites that we’ve seen tilted recently:

Pop-Up Dinners: At $35 per person, this Burmese Pop-Up Dinner tilted in 24 hours and sold out in 48 hours. Tickets included an appetizer, entree, dessert, microbrewed beer and specialty cocktails! The organizers did a great job of updating guests with photos of some of the food they have cooking for the event. This event was a small pipe dream from two dudes who had a passion for Burmese food, and they were able to make it a reality through Crowdtilt.

Boozy Brunch: In San Francisco, this Yacht Week tilter took over Circa (known by many for their bottomless mimosas) for an all-inclusive boozy brunch to reminisce memories with the group that attended the vacation together. In New York, Grace used Crowdtilt to collect 30 bucks per person for her birthday brunch that also included bottomless drinks.

Bachelorette Dinner with a World-Class Chef: By setting a payment deadline for the cost of $75.68 each, Catherine and her friends were able to spend less time fumbling over loose change and more time enjoying their San Diego getaway! Catherine said: “I’ve used Crowdtilt a couple times while planning bachelorette and engagement parties and its such an easy way to split up the costs!!!”

bacheloretteMurder Mystery Dinner Party: A really fun and creative activity for groups! Their $50 per person included a 3 course dinner and 2 cocktails. We’ve actually seen several 20s-themed nights that include a game of Whodunnit, and the group is charged with the challenge of collectively finding the murderer in their midst.

murdermysteryBirthday Dinners: Susan celebrated her 30th with a little dinner and dancing in the Mission, and used Crowdtilt to cover the food, first round and post-dinner dancing. My friend Julia celebrated with some girlfriends over wine and dinner at A16, so we split the bill over our phones once we got the bill. Super easy to pull money together to make the occasion extra special.

If you aren’t using Crowdtilt to collect $$ for your dinner or brunch in advance, our mobile app makes it super easy to split the bill on the go even if it’s after the fact. What brunch or dinner do you have coming up next? Tell us about them!
