Leaving your apartment to run to the liquor store could soon be a thing of the past. Thirstie —an on-demand alcohol delivery app— has just expanded to San Francisco and will bring the party to you for $35. (That's a $30 minimum purchase plus $5 delivery fee, according to the SF Business Times.)
The process is straightforward. You can use the Thirstie app or website to order. After you enter your delivery address and credit card information for your first order, every subsequent order can be a three-click process. Choose your bottles, add a tip, and wait. Your booze will be delivered to your door within an hour. Need a cocktail recipe? The site can help you with that, too. Then again, the Internet's full of recipes, so the real value here is convenience.
