You may have noticed the weather in NYC is considerably better these days. And, since this weekend is the unofficial start to summer, we're finding ourselves staring out the window, wishing we were drinking on a rooftop somewhere. You can imagine our delight when Drizly announced today that it will expand its booze delivery service to include beer in Manhattan and Brooklyn, which makes it the only app to offer beer delivery in NYC. And, that means it should be part of your app arsenal, if it isn't already.
“In Boston and Chicago, we see beer in a huge percentage of all shopping carts, so we know there’s massive demand," says Drizly CEO and cofounder Nick Rellas. "With the weather warming up, the Mets and Yankees in full swing, and backyard barbecue season upon us, it was important for Drizly to be the first app to make sure New Yorkers can get a cold beer delivered to them."
Sure, you could set up beer delivery online. But, anyone who's ordered Seamless during a cab ride can tell you how special an app feature like this will be. Plus, Drizly's giving R29 readers $10 off. Just enter code R29. Cheers, New York. It's gonna be a good (read: lazy) summer.
