Cocktail Compass Cometh

Posted By on Fri, Aug 28, 2009 at 7:55 AM

Any minute now—literally—the iTunes App Store will be adding a shiny new app to its roster that's Boise and booze specific.

It's called Cocktail Compass and it's an app exclusive to the cross section of Boise's readers who 1. have an iPhone and 2. have a thirst for happy hour.

Modeled after Cocktail Compasses in Seattle and Portland developed by alt-weeklies The Stranger and The Mercury, Boise Weekly put together the most definitive and comprehensive list of bars and happy hours in the valley.

Download the FREE app. Scroll through the alphabetical list to find your favorite bar or tell the app to find the bar nearest to you. The app will tell you exactly how long you have left before happy hour is over at every bar in town with a happy hour. It'll also tell you just what the happy hour dealy-o is so that you can find the deal best suited to your budget and your favorite drinks. Want to play pool or shuffleboard? Cocktail Compass also includes info on extras at every bar so you know if the joint is smoking or non-smoking, has a WiFi connection, charges a cover, offers live music, has games and TVs or serves food.

iTunes will be launching Boise's version literally any minute over the next few days. As soon as it goes live we'll let you know.
