Fear not: Liquor Run Mobile will not only tell you where the nearest liquor stores are, it will also, crucially, tell you how late they’re open.
BeerCloud is a beer lover’s dream come true. This interactive database allows you to check out what other people are saying about the beer in your hand merely by scanning a bar code. Have a favorite sauce that’s hard to find? BeerCloud will tell you where to get it. Bonus: the Beer Sommelier feature will tell you what foods pair well with whatever you’re drinking.
