Six ways Chaheati will save you summer

Greetings and Happy Fathers’ Day, readers! As the nonstop stream of barbecues, baseball games, and longer days kick into high gear, you’ll need to be prepared. You know that rain or shine, you’ll be outside, and Chaheati has your back every time. Literally. See what we did there?

In a shameless plug for our product (it is our blog after all), we’ve assembled a list of the myriad ways Chaheati chairs can improve your quality of life this summer.

If you have kids, you’ve probably spent some portion of your life attending activities that involve hot, dusty fields and chain link backstops. Although you’ll likely transport about a half ton of gear to the field, make sure you prioritize! Your Chaheati camp chair will be the envy of all your fellow spectators as they squirm on the blazing hot bleachers. And Chaheati’s Water-Resistant Denier fabric means it will dry quickly after those summer storms that aren’t quite enough to call a rain-out, but just enough to leave things damp and uncomfortable (no guarantees that your shorts will dry as quickly).

Fireworks

As a patriotic American (sorry Canada), it’s pretty much mandatory that you find and view some kind of fireworks display on July 4. What would Independence Day be without hearing the cries of “oooohs”, “aaaahs” and “I told you not to light sparklers in the garage!” from your friends and neighbors? You’ll be pleased with Chaheati’s rugged construction and ability to stand up to 280 lbs as the small children screaming in terror start to pile up in your lap.

Parades & Festivals

Summer brings with it a nearly endless variety of summer festivals and parades. Whether you’re interested in music, historical reenactments, rodeos, or strolling heifers, someone somewhere is busily planning their homage to your favorite things. Sit parade-side in style with your oversized Chaheati chair. Bonus feature: two cup holders mean fewer trips to concession stands!

Barbecues

Fire up the grill–summer wouldn’t be complete without barbecues. Whether you like your sauce tangy, sweet, or fiery hot, you’ll need a place to sit, or face the increased probability that you will be wearing that sauce home. You’ll be grateful for the comfy, baked bean-resistant sweet seat you’re in, and our hosts will be grateful for your BYOC (bring your own chair) thoughtfulness as they haul out lawn chairs from the depths of the garage.

Camping

One of our favorite ways to use our Chaheati camp chairs is to do just that–camp! Chaheati’s rugged and durable construction means you’ll sit in comfort at the beach, on a mountaintop, or anywhere in between. The super high efficiency battery lasts for over 500 uses, which means one less thing to worry about on your trip! The water- and fire-resistant fabric make Chaheati a perfect addition to your camp furniture collection wherever you roam.

Lawn Seats

A growing number of cities and towns now boast outdoor concerts and theatrical performances, many of which have free or lower cost ‘lawn seats’ available. While lying on a blanket under the stars is a lovely idea, after an hour or so my back is not on board, and I know there will be a price to pay. In addition to the super-comfy seating surface, our Chaheati camp chair also offers four heat settings (look ma- no coil!) to keep you cozy long after the sun goes down.


We hope that wherever you are, you enjoy your summer. We love product feedback and love your Chaheati stories even more! Drop us a line and we may feature you in a future blog post. Happy summer everyone!

Popular St. Patrick’s Day Parades Around the US

St. Patrick’s Day parades are soon approaching, and with it signs of the end of winter. People are grabbing their kids and camp chairs and heading out in droves to historic parades around the U.S. But where are some of the most popular St. Patrick’s Day parades going to be this year?

Chicago: Saturday, March 12, 2011, 12:00 p.m.

You know St. Patrick’s Day is a big deal in a city when the government allows a major waterway to be dyed green. This is exactly what happens at the Chicago St. Patrick’s Day Parade. People head to Michigan Ave. and Wacker Dr. at the river a little before 10 a.m. to watch the dyeing. Afterwards everyone heads off to the parade route. This particular parade first started in 1843 and has since rapidly increased in popularity and attendance. Expect this year to be no less crowded than the past; get there early!

New York City: Thursday, March 17, 2011, 11:00 a.m.

The New York City St. Patrick’s Day Parade is the longest-running annual St. Patrick’s Day parade in the world. It’s said that Irish soldiers serving under Great Britain/Ireland’s King George III first organized the parade in 1762 as a way to show pride for Ireland and its culture. Today the parade ranks as the most attended parade in the United States and lasts for between five and six hours. People grab their camp chairs and stake an early claim along Fifth Street to witness the legions of military and emergency personnel, marching bands, and floats.

Savannah: Thursday, March 17, 2011, 10:15 a.m.

The origins of this St. Patrick’s Day parade lie with the Hibernian Society of Savannah, Georgia. Back in 1813, a group of Irish protestants came together to celebrate St. Patrick and Irish culture. In 1824 the Hibernian’s invited the public to attend the first public Irish Day Parade in Savannah. The parade has been an annual event since, drawing over 300,000 people to sit down and watch the floats and bands, and sing classic Irish songs.

South Boston: Sunday, March 20, 2011, 1:00 p.m.

In 1737, the Charitable Irish Society of Boston was founded on St. Patrick’s Day. It’s said that this group gave its thanks to St. Patrick, making it one of the first recorded honors to the Saint in the U.S. (Contrary to popular belief, it doesn’t appear that a parade was also held that year.) Fast forward to today, a time when nearly 24 percent of Boston’s population is made up of Irish decent. From this it’s easy to see why Boston takes its St. Patrick’s Day parade seriously, making it the second-most popular Irish Day Parade in America. Rain or shine, people head outdoors to catch glimpses of bagpipers, horse-drawn carriages, and floats.

St. Louis: Saturday, March 12, 2011, 12:00 p.m.

The St. Louis St. Patrick’s Day Parade may not be as old or steeped in tradition as other parades in the U.S., but the folks in St. Louis know how to do it right. This is year 42 for the parade, which runs down historic Market Street. The morning of the parade, the thirty-third annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade Run will take place, pitting nearly 12,000 people against each other in a five-mile run through the heart of the city. Afterwards, hundreds of thousands of people will head outside to watch bands, balloons, and floats pass by, followed by tons of fun at the Irish Village.
