Nebo’s 4th of July Hot Dog Bonanza

Here at Nebo, we love any excuse to go hard for a holiday — big or small.

On Pi Day, we give out a grand prize for whoever can recite the most digits of Pi by memory. Neboween is a weeklong celebration of games and over-the-top costumes. Thanksgiving is a two-part affair (Thanksgiving Lunch, followed by Leftovers-giving). Even National Ferret Day gets its very own Zoom background.

A Better World Starts with Awkward Questions

There was a distinct moment when I decided I would no longer try to hide or tiptoe around being gay (although tiptoeing would have been one of many things giving me away). It was my prom night. The year was 2004, and I was a lanky seventeen-year-old. A guy I didn’t know asked me: “Are you gay?”

Adult Field Day = Everybody Wins

Field Day

Working remotely has its perks, but there are some experiences that just aren’t the same over Zoom. We’ve faithfully practiced even the smallest traditions to get the most out of our human-centered culture through a two-year global pandemic, like terribly singing Happy Birthday together at every Beer Friday meeting. Still, there’s no substitute gathering and there’s certainly no way to create a virtual version of our (infamous) annual holiday party.

Cheers to the Holiday Nobody Asked for: Chardonnay Day

For no real reason at all, I’ve always avoided Chardonnay. Something about it just feels so nineties, so Girls Night Out, and not in the nostalgic Sex and the City reboot way. 

In short, Chardonnay feels passé.

But a few weeks ago, with the Pinot Grigio out at the bar, I ordered a glass of Chardonnay — and to my surprise, I enjoyed it. It was crisp, refreshing and just slightly fruity. I found myself asking: do I like Chardonnay??? And why is this wine so divisive among my millennial friends?

The Do's & Don’ts of Celebrating AAPI Communities through Marketing

My mother woke me up for Diwali before the sun rose.

I prayed while wearing the salwar kameez my grandmother couriered from India. My mother lit the incense sticks as my father offered delicacies to the murtis (statues of our many Hindu Gods). Together, we devoured the sweet gulab jamun. After our morning celebration, I refused to change out of my traditional garb. Eventually, my parents gave in and drove me to my elementary school.

A PR Mastermind: The Kris Jenner Effect

The Kardashian-Jenner name needs no introduction. Love ’em or hate ’em, there’s only one thing we kan’t seem to do: ignore them. (Trust me, I’ve tried.) The infamous Kar-Jenner clan has been a staple in pop-culture headlines for well over a decade now. But what exactly is it about this family that has fans obsessed with them? 

It’s certainly not their talent for singing or dancing. In fact, their most well-known quality might be their knack for creating marketable gossip. Here are a few lessons from the queen herself on how to turn that family drama into the tea of the century.
