Sure, you could watch the forthcoming Olympic Games in Tokyo from any number of Chicago bars, but how about from the home of a former Olympian? That's the proposition being offered this month by Chicago Bulls legend Scottie Pippen, who's renting out his memorabilia-filled Highland Park home for three one-night Airbnb stays this August in honor of the 2020 Games.
Parties of up to four guests per night can book the Olympics-themed experience, and Pippen—who famously won gold playing for the U.S. men's basketball team alongside fellow Bulls player Michael Jordan at the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona—will welcome guests with a virtual greeting upon arrival. From there, take some time explore the home's tricked-out rooms, including an indoor basketball court, arcade room, sauna and a movie theater where you can watch the present-day men's basketball team compete at the 2020 Games, plus archival footage from the 1992 Games. There's even a pool outfitted with an outdoor television, so there's no chance you'll miss any of the events while you take a dip.
If you get hungry, fruits and veggies will be on hand, as well as a dinner of steak, baked potato and asparagus (purportedly Pippen's favorite pre-game meal). Wander around and check out memorabilia from the 1992 Games, as well as new items from Team USA's 2020 Medal Stand Collection—some of which you'll be able to take home upon check-out.
Want to take a shot at securing your Olympics-themed evening at Pippen's house? The one-night stays, which will be available on August 2, 4 and 6, are going for $92 per night in a nod to the '92 Olympics. Bookings will be available starting at noon Central Time on July 22, and you should act fast—we imagine these hard-to-come-by reservations won't last long.
