Did you read this heading seven times? Yes, we aswell. We tried to include “Dak Prescott” but had to cut our losses somewhere.
Irving-based 7-Eleven enters the short-term rental business. On Monday, they announced an all-night game experience on Airbnb that would allow some lucky Dallas County gamers to play on a slurpee machine while playing PlayStation 5 in their new luxury evolution store. Bonus, Dak Prescott is the virtual host and there’s an hour-long twitch with FaZe Temperrr.
There is still a lot to unpack here …
On Monday, February 1st, 7-Eleven will open reservations on Airbnb for two nights, February 26th and February 28th, in this gaming paradise. Each evening is $ 11. Guests must be 18 years of age and live in Dallas County. There is room for two guests every evening, but these two have to live in the same house (due to COVID).
Listing details state that check-in is from 4pm to 6pm, no pets or parties. Car service is offered, which could be cool but also ruin any chance for an Irish goodbye if it’s lame. As for the sleeping arrangements, there are two luxurious deck chairs (no stomach sleepers), plush robes, slippers, blankets, pillows “and more!” We really appreciate the last two words, especially the exclamation mark, because those unexpected thoughtful touches left by the host are always the best. (Free nachos for life!)
“The store will be completely transformed into a futuristic plush play palace,” said a statement from 7-Eleven. The evening includes a one-hour Twitch streaming session with FaZe Temperrr from the FaZe Clan.
Better or worse, players will have access to a variety of 7-Eleven drinks and snacks, including the Slurpee Drink Station, Laredo Tacos, Red Bull, MTN DEW and Doritos.
This new concept is an experimental testing ground, and five similar stores are slated to open nationwide.
In light of the pandemic, 7-Eleven says guests must wear a mask when not eating or drinking, but when would it be? We know savvy gamblers will streamline the rope through a super long straw chain deployed on a galactic gulp.
No word on whether guests can request a late check out. However, there will be a “certified compliance officer” who will oversee all activities to ensure that COVID security measures are being followed. Then a collective sigh of relief fell across the room. Mom says it’s okay to go as long as the certified compliance officer is around.
According to the company, a 7-eleven concierge will provide guidance and answer any questions or concerns throughout guests’ experience. Guests only encounter the COVID-19 Compliance Officer and the 7-Eleven Concierge. All other staff (security, maintenance, catering services, etc.) will stay outside of the business unless guests request their services. ”
This literally has to be a movie. Posted on Netflix next week, right?
