Task of the Week: Be Our Grillmaster

The weather’s been pretty awesome in San Francisco. We wouldn’t exactly call it “hot,” but this city that Mark Twain famously slandered for its bone-chilling summers has been bathed in sunshine for weeks. Maybe this incredible weather is why Vanessa N. and the other rad folks over at 140 Proof decided to throw a barbecue for their customers. They hired TaskRabbit Justin L. to man the grill and chat up the guests. Justin, of course, rocked the Task — and he looked pretty good in the apron, too! Planning your own barbecue for Memorial Day weekend? Here are some ways TaskRabbit can help: Grillmaster — TaskRabbits like Justin can hold court at your grill, so you can relax. Supply Run — Need ice? Beer? Extra chairs? Hire a TaskRabbit to deliver party supplies. Sous Chef — Need someone to slice the watermelon or whip up some appetizers? Extra Staff — From valet parking to kickball refereeing, TaskRabbits can help.

TaskRabbits mingled with each other, nibbled on a catered spread from Bi-Rite Market, and brainstormed ideas about running Tasks at stations throughout the room. The TaskRabbits in attendance gathered in a circle for the night’s discussion. TaskRabbit Ambassador Erika Murdock Balbuena welcomed everyone, and began the evening by debuting The TaskRabbit Credo. The Credo is a living document encompassing the spirit and ethos of the micro-entrepreneurs that make up the TaskRabbit Community. You can read the entire thing here. The evening’s panel introduced themselves by sharing their favorite Task stories. Holly C., a level 11 TaskRabbit, said her most memorable Task was doing a Costco run for a blind woman. “It made me realize that this is a significant thing we’re doing for people.” Level 14 TaskRabbit Kim E. loved delivering a Thank You card for an applicant to the TaskRabbit team who was later hired.
