Pointing you in the direction of happy hour.

Two words: Cocktail Compass. In addition to putting out these pages week after week, and on top of putting up new reads on the Web site every day of the week, we've been busy cooking up a few other things at BWHQ. Among them is a very cool new tool we're about to launch on iTunes called Cocktail Compass. Picture this: an iPhone app that pinpoints your location and tells you where the nearest bar to you is, how much time is left for happy hour, what the happy hour specials are and whether the bar has pool tables, TVs, a patio, food and more. Regrettably, Cocktail Compass is only available to BW readers with iPhones, but we have added the information to our database at Click on the Food tab and then on "find bars." For those of you with iPhones, we expect Apple to launch Cocktail Compass Boise any minute. Literally. In the meantime, check out the Seattle and Portland versions, which were developed by alt weeklies The Stranger and The Mercury.
