Chicagoans love getting things delivered. First it was dinner, with companies like CEODeliveries and Grubhub bringing us everything from Chinese to Ethiopian. Then we quickly adopted grocery delivery with Peapod and now you can barely go a block without seeing one of their trucks. We had an instant crush on Instacart and their quick deliveries from Stanley's, Costco, Mariano's, Whole Foods, and Jewel.
Now, there's Drizly. The service that delivers BOOZE. In 20 MINUTES. That's right. You could be sitting on your couch watching Game of Thrones and think "I really need some of that Ommegang Fire and Blood" and then actually be drinking it before the show's over. Or maybe you've got some friends over and you run out of wine. Open the app, pick a bottle, pay, and everyone's clinking their glasses and toasting your hosting abilities.
Seriously. This is brilliant. And it launches today. It's limited by area, but if you're in the South Loop, Loop, West Loop, River North, Gold Coast, Streeterville, Wrigleyville, Lakeview, Old Town, Lincoln Park, Wicker Park and Bucktown neighborhoods you could have bottle in hand faster than the 151 can get from Randolph to Oak Street.
