The Best Way to Find Cheap (Good) Drinks

When I’m traveling around, I always love a good cocktail.  But when looking at the stretch of restaurants and bars before me, how do I know what option is the best?

I use Happy Hour Anywhere.

Happy Hours AnywhereAvailable on both Droid and Apple

This App uses your GPS location to identify exactly where you are.  Then tells you were the cheapest food AND drink is around you.

You won’t just find results between 4-7–the standard happy hour.  Any sort of special gets loaded into this.

I’ve never failed to find a happy hour around me with this app.  I’ve gotten half-priced appetizers. Five dollar drinks.  And two for one specials.

And I don’t mean crappy drinks.  Some of the specials will be crappy drinks, of course, but really good happy hours pop up too.  Craft cocktails, martinis, etc., all abound.

And who’d know that once during my travels, the Four Seasons would have one of the best Happy Hours around.  Oh yeah, this app.

It ranks them by distance, but you can filter to see in a specific area, or change the time if you are trying to plan for later.
