Renkoo Penguins

Renkooks agree: nothing says fun like a dragon boat race. What’s a dragon boat, you ask? Why, it’s quite possibly the greatest sport you’ve never tried or watched! Imagine yourself in a huge canoe with 20 paddlers, a drummer, and a steers-person in the back. Now, paddle as fast as you can against seven other boats. Crazy delicious fun and potentially a place to meet your mate! Yar!

To celebrate our love of the big boats, Renkoo helped sponsor a local dragon boat team, Ripple Effect. Now’s your chance to see them in action! As we noted in our weekly newsletter, the S.F. International Dragon Boat Race is this weekend at Treasure Island. Come out to cheer on our team, sample excellent food, and enjoy a world class view of San Francisco.

Just look for a group with our fancy logo which we just happened to put up this week in their honor. Paddles up!

Renkoo is all about friends, planning events, and managing your offline lives. Sometimes though, it’s worth the time to make something just for fun that you and your friends can use. That’s what Booze Mail is!

Booze Mail is a Facebook application built on the recently released Facebook Platform and hosted on Amazon’s EC2. What that means is, your friends on Facebook can now share the Renkoo!

Booze Mail is about one simple thing: we all love tasty beverages, whether it’s beer, mixed drinks, juice, soda or the infamous Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster. We also love sharing that with our friends. With Booze Mail, you can send your friends a drink, send groups of friends a round of drinks, send them a message, and then your friends have the ability to redeem the sent drink. (You can actually send anyone on Facebook a drink, but we’ll let you figure out how to do that.) Also, if you like stats, check this out!

So, add Booze Mail to your profile, start sending your best buddies drinks, and when it comes time to redeem your drinks and get together with your friends, well, Renkoo can help with that. 🙂

…with flowers!

Renkoo Color Flowers

…which is just like May, but in color!

Renkoo Bees Love Springtime

…and for those for whom flowers are too… er… flowery… we present an encore of our drinkin’ robots, who have retired from the Renkoo login page, and have moved over to Facebook for some fun that we’ll talk about soon.

Renkoo Robots

We know that drinking robots now sit on the Renkoo home page, but we want to remind everyone to take some time, go outside, and enjoy the flowers like Renkoo Bee and his buddies do…

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Let’s celebrate Cinco de Mayo with a new Renkoo logo: ducks!

(Yes, we realize ducks have nothing to do with Cinco de Mayo. But we still think they’re festive.)
