Enjoying solitude on a beautiful Sunday morning and browsing through things to do in Bengaluru, I came across this local adventure club in SF. Only concern I have is that it's in SF, not Bengaluru!!

Meet someone new.
Be adventurous.
Join a PINCHd adventure!

Their "About" page says:
"Pinchd was started by Shruti, Eric & Amara. A couple of years ago, we moved to San Francisco looking for adventure. Trying to balance work, friends, and fun, it wasn’t long before we fell into a mundane routine. All of us shared the same sentiment– we slept, ate, worked, and occasionally went out to the same old bars. We lost the adventurous spirit we had when we first moved to the city. It wasn’t until someone asked us if we had been to the secret slides on Seward Street. We quickly realized we were missing out on the real San Francisco. Motivated by our desire to change, we dedicated our lives to inspiring others to step out of routine. We started with our close friends. We asked them slowly explore the city with us. Now we organize our “adventures” for anyone. Whether you are looking to break out of their routine or just have a burning desire to do something different with new people.

Isn't it cool if we could set up one such club here in Bengaluru where you don't have to pay a huge sum for membership, you could just go online and checkout the events available over the weekend, sign up and pay online.. just show up for the event and have fun!"

Future seems very lustrous for such a start up.. Few years down the line when people will be lost in the virtual world more than ever before, the need to escape from the mundanes of life and have little fun and adventure would be greater! A lot of Indians need to learn to have fun.. someone has to start helping them realize it!

Oops, did I say if we could set up one such club in Bengaluru instead of if we had one in Bengaluru? Don't mind, that's the entrepreneur in me who is trying to jump out of the ordinary me!!
