Buy Your Friend a Drink
No longer will “I owe you a drink” bets go unfulfilled! Thanks to BuyYourFriendADrink.com!
I originally found this on CNET’s Crave site, and it seems like a pretty cool idea, although it’s in its early phases. Not a ton of bars are listed yet, but I’m sure more are added daily.
The concept is you can literally buy your friend a drink via their website, which then sends a text message to your friend telling them they have X number of dollars to spend at a certain bar. Your friend then flashes their phone to the bartender who enters the code that was sent to you, and that’s it. Free drink.
I guess next you’ll be able to take your friend to lunch without actually being there.
