Everyone has -- or should have -- that one friend in their life who always knows where to find a drink special, no matter the time of day or location. In that spirit, we're announcing today that you can be that person. The Riverfront Times and Village Voice Media have debuted a Happy Hours application for the iPhone, Google Android and mobile web.

With this app., users have access to more than 15,000 happy hours in 30 cities nationwide, ensuring that your travels to concerts in other cities will not be without their proper, affordable libations. The app. also crosses over into bars/music venues, and gives user the option of adding their own photo to the bar profile.

Download from iTunes. On your phone, make sure you search for "Happy Hours" with an "s" at the end. The app. icon is a line drawing of a martini glass against an orange background.

Tip: After downloading the app., shake your iPhone for a randomized place to drink. You can then vote it up ("I Like It!") or bury it ("Eh.")

Below is a video tour of the app. Tired of the Yelp controversy? We promise our app. is alleged-extortion-free!



TechCrunch has a leaked report about the app. rollout as well.
