Issa Rae to Host LA-Inspired Airbnb Experience ‘Insecure’ – VIBE.com
Although Precarious aired the series finale in December last year, creator Issa Rae isn’t done giving fans more ways to enjoy their favorite show. Last year the Precarious The mobile game was announced to allow users to virtually step into the lives of Issa and Molly. Now Rae has moved the offline experience into real life for one lucky fan with a new Airbnb experience.
Rae announced that she had joined Airbnb as a host, offering a Precarious inspired experience for customers in South Los Angeles. Up to two guests will be hosted in its neighborhood for a weekend from February 12-14 for $56 a night and will have the opportunity to experience first-hand the culture, businesses and communities synonymous with Black LA. The weekend coincides with the NFL Super Bowl LVI, which is also taking place in Los Angeles.
“Since my series began in 2016, it’s been an honor to showcase the people, culture and businesses that make South LA such a vibrant part of the city,” Issa explained in a press release. “I became an Airbnb host to create a stay where fans of the show can experience it for themselves. From Worldwide Tacos dinner on game day to art from my favorite local artists on the walls, c is LA, my way.
Rae’s weekend special guests will be hosted by the actress herself via a virtual taping, game day dinner hosted by tacos from around the world, panoramic views of Los Angeles and the Hollywood Hills from the outdoor lounge, a View Park pad featuring works by local black artists including Maya Iman, Vakseen, and Domonique Brown, complimentary Sienna Naturals hair treatments, and more.
The media mogul isn’t the only resident providing a local experience in Los Angeles over Super Bowl weekend and with a 50% increase in listing searches in LA, Airbnb has pledged to support equitable health services, youth development, and job creation in South LA as a way to supplement the economic impact of accommodation in the region. According to a press release, the company will donate $500,000 with the Nasdaq, host a first Los Angeles expansion of the Airbnb Entrepreneurship Academy, and more.
The unique stay is not a competition. Fans can request to book this stay starting Tuesday, February 8 at 10 a.m. PT here. View photos of Issa Rae Precarious Airbnb below.
