Ever been to a bar and you’re pretty sure that your only chance at a free drink is that overweight guy with the cold sore and that weird hairy mole, and you realize that you’d rather shell out the cash for a peaceful night than risk him tell that story bout his hernias four times in a row as he spits cold sore drool on your face?
Sorry… got carried away. ANYWAY.. If you’ve ever wished for your friends to be able to share an experience of food and drinks with you even when they are halfway across the world, if you’ve ever wanted to send a special shot to a friend celebrating a birthday while you are stuck inside with the flu, if you’ve ever wanted to cash in all those internet stalkers you’ve been hoarding, well then… I’ve got an app for you… SLINGR.
Slingr – The self proclaimed social networking tool for drinkers, allows your facebook and twitter friends to remotely send you drinks when you are at bars and clubs hooked up with the service.
According to the service:
When you check in to a Slingr spot, a link is shared to your social feed (e.g. Facebook wall) which takes your friends to a menu system tied directly to your table. From there they can send you drinks, food, and other stuff which is delivered to you by the serving staff.
Currently three bars in the Los Angeles Area have it: Michael’s Bar and Grill in Burbank, the Hollywood Way and The Red Lion in Silver Lake.
Would you guys buy me drinks??? I need to have this blog profit me in some way…. JUST KIDDING. I love you all, even if you don’t buy me drinks. But, I’ll try it out, see if actually works and report back soon.
Here’s the Facebook page and Website for those of you who would like to look into it more as it grows in popularity.
