In honor of the fact that today is Friday, and our fair city of San Francisco will be brimming with revelry throughout the weekend due to the Outside Lands Music Festival, we wanted to share an appropriate and indispensable online tool.
StumblingDonkey.com is a map-based happy hour search for San Francisco, Baltimore, Annapolis and Washington, D.C. This crucial information is displayed on citywide maps powered by Google; clicking on the red markers will display the name of the bar, the special, its contact information and a link to Yelp.
This blows prior happy hour innovations right out of the water. I can remember thinking an Excel spreadsheet with a list of happy hours organized by day and neighborhood was the greatest thing since the Patriots lost the Super Bowl.
The site uses the same concept that we bring to our apartment search. Location is critical, whether you are looking for an apartment for rent, or looking for the most cost-effective way in which to increase your blood alcohol content.
This could also be a good site to check during an apartment search. Some find it desirable to have a nice neighborhood bar to stop by after work; this feature is a glaring omission from Walkscore.
Where would you rather have a local watering hole, near your office or your apartment?
