The Village Voice Happy Hours App: Your Phone as Drinking Buddy
When happy hour clicks around to the north of both your clock and your priority list, you may not feel like taking the time to figure out where to go. Sure, there's your local dive bar, but there's also So Much More. Well, we have an app for that. Happy Hours is a free nationwide app that launches today from Village Voice Media and app developer GoTime.
Designed for the iPhone, Android, and the mobile web, the app provides access to over 15,000 happy hours in 30 different cities around the country, and currently has 1,121 listing in Los Angeles. You just download the app (or search the app store for "Happy Hours"), let your phone know where you are, and it will give you the happy hours in your location. Your phone is your friend, your guide, and your GPS locator. (Hi Karl Rove!) Now it's also your enabler. And if you have lots of happy hours in your neighborhood, it can also call you a cab home.
