Tonight the new website DrinkBaltimore.com launches at a party at Alewife from 8-11 p.m. The party will feature raffle prizes, merchandise giveaways, and $1 from each Victory Beer sold will be donated to Velocipede Bike Project.
The website—an offshoot of Philadelphia-based TheDrinkNation.com—strives to cover bar reviews, event listings, happy hour specials, and be an aggregate of local bar news in the region. One of the coolest aspects of the site is its mobile component. Compatible with most smartphones, the app can display happy hour and drink specials available near a certain location.
However, it will be interesting to see how a Philly-based office can cover the Baltimore nightlife scene. So far, the website is featuring a lot of topics that have been covered before ("Bars as seen in The Wire," "Best bars to watch the Ravens"). But, I think the site will be a good, comprehensive, and current guide to happy hours and drink specials around town—something that will surely be resourceful to any bar go-er.
