For all those times you've come home from work with a throbbing headache, and the walls close in too fast, here's an iPhone app to Tarzan-in and keep you from dying. Or at least crying. It's called Happy Hours, and it's powered by Go Time and Village Voice Media.
It's chock full of the good stuff: you can view menus, comments and, of course, happy-hour specials all around town. Here's the best part: When you shake the phone, it makes an ice-in-glass sound and picks up your favorite bar or restaurant.
Oh, and it's available in 35 cities around the country, including, of course, Dallas. Click through and see Happy Hour details like menus, location and comments.
Download it here, or search for "Happy Hours" in the apps store.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
