Halfoffdrinks.com: A Miami Groupon Just For Booze Hounds
|Halfoffdrinks.com is making every hour a happy hour!|
Ibarra says he and his partner came up with the site after following mega deal sites like Groupon and Living Social -- and noticing that a lot of the deals were for thing he and his friends weren't interested in -- like teeth cleaning and spa treatments.
In fact, the halfoffdrinks.com website has a promise on the home page of "no spas, no yoga, so lipo." What it does promise is a slew of half priced or better deals at mid-range pubs, restaurants, and bars that generally serve food, though the site will concentrate on libations and bar bites, not dinner bargains.
Ibarra won't disclose any of the bars he's inked deals with, he said to think on the lines of "Blue Martini, Bonefish Grill, or Segafredo. We're not going for the dive bars."
So far, the site is accepting registrations, though the deals won't start coming into your inbox until next week or so. "Right now we're working on all the back end site logistics to ensure our first deal will run smooth," Ibarra told Short Order.
At first the site will offer deals on a new location every three days or so, with the deal running for about two weeks. After a few weeks, halfoffdrinks.com will start offering a daily deal, as well as hosting happy hours, socials, and networkers. To pre-register for drink deals, visit halfoffdrinks.com.
