Expensive Bar Drinks No More #76

Nerd Stalker interview with Urban Pre-Game Founder, Ben Fisher in NYC. Urban Pre-game is the first online service to let you buy drinks at a steep discount before you even get to the bar. The more your group buys, the deeper your discount. It's all about ganging up on the price and making the most of your night. Urban Pre-game lets you drink in bars at grocery store prices by buying in bulk with your friends. Pre-buy as a group, but pay for your portion online. The price-per-drink drops as your group's drink total increases. And everyone in your group gets the final low price. Everyone. Pre-gamers collectively saved about $500 at their New Years Eve event. Beer and mixed-drinks at one price that's easy to swallow. Please drink responsibly.
