Refined Gowallabies

Never one to turn down a drink, especially one consumed at a vineyard or wine bar, some Gowallaphiles have a perfectly tuned wine tasting palate.  Break out your corkscrew and wine knife, and then check in at three of your favorite (or just convenient) wine bars or vineyards to receive the “Sommelier” pin.


Go Artsy With Gowalla

Gowallabies are a curious and exploratory sort.  We are apt to drop by an art museum or a sculpture and take a peek.  If you visit 5 different art museums or statues you’ll be the docent of this newly created “Curator” pin:

Whether it be for business or pleasure, check in at 3 different hotels and receive this “Room Service” pin.  It took me a while to figure out what it was, but even the key card slot on the door is smiling!  Gowalla has that affect on people…

Gowalla Rocks

Get your lighters up and…ROCK ON!  As we all know, Gowalla is based in the “Live Music Capital of the World”, so it’s no surprise the wonderful folks over there created this rockin’ creation.  Check-in to 3 different live music venues to pick up this “Roadie” pin.

For All You Gowalla Sports Fans Out There…

There are hundreds of featured and custom stadium and arena stamps all over the world.  There are an even greater number of local high school, college, and community sport locations to add to your virtual passport.  If you check-in to your favorite sports venue 5 times you’ll receive this “Superfan” pin:

So get out, Gowalla, and cheer your little hearts out…and at the same time let everyone know that you are a SUPERFAN!

Get to the Gym, with Gowalla…

Check in at your local gym or fitness center five different times and receive the “Sweat It Out” pin.  I don’t know if five times is enough to actually get in shape, but its surely a start.

There are a few gyms, university recreation centers, and a yoga center that have already teamed up with Gowalla.  Penn State’s Rec Hall, Ohio State’s RPAC, University of Florida’s Reitz Student Union,  24 Hour Fitness, Lifetime Fitness, and Black Swan Yoga are custom stamps you can pick up while picking up this pin, and hopefully picking up some healthy habits along the way.
