‘Happy Hours’ Appeals to Your Inner Jimmy Buffet

A new app has arrived in the Android Market called Happy Hours and it is likely to be a hit. It’s one of those “genius-in-simplicity” applications that appeals to many of us.   Open the app up, let it detect where you are via GPS, and find nearby happy hours. Period.  While this might not be the newest idea on the planet, it does offer one advantage over similar apps. Rather than being confined to specific metropolitan markets or one in particular, Happy Hours kicks off with more than 30 to start.

Designed with help from Village Voice Media, the app pulls up over 15,000 happy hours from across the United States and offers up additional resources. Learn what kind of food is service, what the atmosphere is like, and read reviews from other users.

The following cities are already  supported by Happy Hours: Akron, Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore, Boston, Boulder, Broward / Palm Beach, Charlotte, Chicago, Cleveland, Columbus, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Fort Worth, Houston, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, New Orleans, New York, Oakland, Orange County, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Portland, Saint Paul, San Antonio, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, Seattle Eastside, St. Louis, Tampa, and Washington DC
