“As you can imagine, Covid-19 has impacted many industries across the globe. Maryland natives, Chris McCasland, a sports and concert industry broker and restaurateur, and Michael Opalski, a senior restaurant industry salesman, both endured a loss of income during the pandemic. As the story goes, both were at home for long periods of time with their families (Chris’ son Brooks is 4 and Mike’s son Alex is 12 and daughter Anna is 9). While at home, Chris started teaching himself e-commerce and searching for cool product ideas. He came up with City Bonfires, a portable, reusable mini bonfire that you can take on all of your outdoor adventures. He enlisted the help of Mike who came up with the design of the product. A 4 inch by 2 inch round metal tin that is filled with non-toxic soy wax. Unlike other soy wax-based products, City Bonfires entire surface becomes the flame – creating a mobile heat source – a mini bonfire!
Thus, City Bonfires was born! Each City Bonfire is handmade in Maryland with American-made materials by two Dads whose jobs were impacted by Covid-19.
We believe that bonfire nights are the best nights. Gather around our City Bonfire and make memories! As Covid-19 has taught us, life is best spent making memories with our family and friends. So get outside, light up the starry sky and make lasting memories!”

Sustainable tumblers and accessories for all seasons of your life.
Info From Parani Life
“This story begins with a sustainable party tumbler, your favorite party cups alter-ego. Growing up in South Florida and living an active outdoor lifestyle, Brandegee Pierce (Co-Founder/ Design Guru) and Danielle Del Sordo (Co-Founder/ Chief Storyteller) grew tired of seeing litter scattered across their beautiful beaches. This fueled Brandegee to design the first vacuum insulated red party cup. After countless 3D-printed prototypes created in his home studio (a.k.a. the living room), he was determined to create the last party cup you will ever need and help put a stop to the billions of single use plastic cups that are tossed every year.The Pirani Party Tumbler will keep the spirit of the occasion alive and your drinks hot or cold all while earning you some good environmental juju. Bring these insulated and reusable cups to your favorite game, tailgating outside a concert, into your college dorm, on your back deck or wherever you choose to party sustainably. We hope this classic red cup will bring people together while making a positive environmental impact.
At Pirani Life, we want to keep this momentum of sustainability moving forward and pledge to design products that will help reduce single-use plastic. Everyone is invited to join the party! So, whatever your preference, raise your Pirani Party Tumbler while humming that famous song ♪ (you know which one were talking about) ♪ and Let’s have a party ♪ ♫

Today, Don Pablo Coffee is a world-class grower and roaster of specialty grade, small-batch roasted-to-order coffees sourced from the world’s best coffee-growing regions and delivered throughout the world. But Don Pablo Coffee all started with a love story.
In 1989, Darron J. Burke, founder of Burke Brands LLC., moved to South Florida in search of adventure. Little did he know he would soon meet the love of his life, Eliana, and his life would change forever. While visiting Eliana’s family in Colombia, Darron fell in love with Latin culture and the country’s delicious coffee. The couple quickly recognized an opportunity and began to learn everything they could about coffee growing and roasting in Colombia and traveled the rest of Latin America to further their education and forge relationships with other coffee growers.”
