The thing about LA is that it's the proverbial red headed step-child of NYC. And rightfully so! Sorry, LA, but it's true: Everything happens New York. And everything happens in New York first. From the hottest new workout sensation and organic "make your own salad" joint (I'm talking about you, sweetgreen!) - to fashion and trends in every single market, the Big Apple will always reign supreme.
And speaking of yet another thing that hasn't quite made its way to the City of Angels: NightOwl - a smart, mood-based bar/nightlife recommendation app. Think of it as the Seamless Web (or another website where you can filter what you're craving by almost any genre under the sun) of bar-hopping.
Here's how it works:
- NightOwl pulls data that's scattered around the web - along with its user-submitted tags - to get you to a bar that you'll love for any situation.
- These tailored bar recommendations will be based on the time and day of the week of your search...because we all know that a hungover Sunday afternoon is completely different than a raring-to-go Friday night at "quittin' time."
I mean, imagine the possibilities! I can think of like 10 situations/week where I'd use NightOwl: Happy hour, girl's night, celebratory post-work cocktails (Let's pretend someone got promoted! Bahahhah, as if!), blind date, brunch 'drink and drown' options...shall I continue? Sorry, I like love to drink!
OK, NYC: If you didn't already download this app after reading the second paragraph in this post, what the hell are you waiting for? Seriously, do it! It's free! And amazing! And so necessary! And...so not yet in LA. Sigh...
Until we drink again,
