Hey look!

The husband of DCOE commenter Beth has started a business that involves drinking. (Hey, why didn't I think of that?) BuyYourFriendADrink.com

The name is pretty self-explanatory, but basically, it works like this: you purchase a gift through the website, an email or text message with a redemption code is sent to the recipient, and the lucky friend uses the code to purchase a drink at a participating bar or restaurant, which are listed by region on the website. Neat, huh?

Currently, most the of bars in the BYFAD network are in or around New York City. When they add one in Boston, you can send some drinks my way, bitchez.

Thanks Eileen! Boston is launching by the end of this month, so I'll send you some free gifts to use!

I love this idea! I have a lot of friends in the NYC area who I wish I could visit more often. This sounds like a good way to show them I'm thinking of them. ;)

Any plans to expand beyond Boston and NYV eventually (assuming those cities work out)?

Hi all! I am the husband that Eileen is talking about.

Thanks for support and yes, we will be expanding beyond NYC and Boston. Chicago and DC will follow in a few months and then we will go further west and south.

We will send you some free drinks when Boston is live!
