One of the biggest problems that Posse aims to solve, is the pickle you always end up in when you’re trying to find a great place in a city that is totally new to you. Cities that are huge; that have tons of incredible places waiting for you to discover, if only you had a bunch of trustworthy recommendations to go by- like the ones from your friends (and their friends!). Mr. Mike Street is one person adding some fantastic, Stateside places to Posse. He’s a Social Media/Digital expert based in Harlem, NY; he loves bourbon, technology, video games and traveling.  ”I love the look of Posse. It’s extremely unique from any other site I’ve seen before. It feels so different and that’s what makes it special.”

 As for NYC…”I LOVE NY because you can never really get bored there. There is always something going on and something to do. NYC is a beast but if you can tame her you’ll be able to win where ever you go!”

Here at Posse HQ, we’ve always got the latest issue of Yen Magazine floating around the office, so when we discovered their Editor, Annie Sebel, recommending her favourite places via Posse there was a collective squeal! In addition to sharing her favourite places to eat, sip & spend; we had a few questions of our own to fire at her:

Hey Annie, you’ve created a load of different streets on Posse! Tell us what you like about using it the site…

I’m slightly obsessed with researching and finding good places to eat and am always asking my friends for good recommendations, I love that Posse embraces this idea but brings it to a larger stage. I also like that Posse’s lovely design and illustrations give the site a friendly feel, it feels like a community rather than a faceless corporation.

Not just a cupcake connoisseur, Monique is a huge charity activist. With cupcakes and hard work backing her, the franchise has supported dozens of charity-related causes and fundraising missions- so far raising nearly $10,000. “ Seeing a finished product all set up at the venue, and hearing the feedback from my clients makes it all worthwhile” says Monique. Talk about a sweetheart! (Pun intended). Monique was kind enough to share a few of her favorite places in Adelaide with us- ” Posse makes sharing my interests fun and it’s lovely to look at!” Here’s what she added to her ‘Sweet Street‘:

The ladies behind dear september: Sienna & Lauren

The ladies behind dear september: Lauren & Sienna

Sister’s sienna and lauren are the creative force behind dear september. Growing up in Sydney’s East, they have long shared a passion for vintage clothing & trinkets, sparking an obsession with hunting down unique old world treasures. Lovers of fashion and interior decorating, they found that there was a lack of home accessories in the market that catered to young fashion conscious women who were fleeing the nest and creating a place of their own! Posse is all about discovering great new places and stores like dear september, so we tracked down the girls to chat about some of the places they’ve added to Posse:
