So let's say you're in the mood to get good and properly plastered in Milwaukee. Wouldn't it be nice if there was a simple way to find out what bars were having a special on any given night, and how to get there from here? Well today's your lucky day my friends. Head on over to Drink Town, where they've created a database hooked into a cool Google Maps interface to do just that. You can filter your results by day (to show only bars that have specials on a given day), and also by the types of specials they have, because as we all know, sometimes getting beer drunk isn't nearly as satisfying as getting drunk off of Jack & Coke. Don't live near Milwaukee? They also have data for Chicago and Baltimore.
So if you need to booze it up because you don't have a special someone tonight, you at least owe it to yourself to do it as cheaply as possible.
Update: If you're interested, I've also started filling out my del.icio.us bookmarks with different drinking destinations downtown. You can find them by looking under bar+Milwaukee. Some of my favorite restaurants are also listed under (you could probably guess) restaurant+Milwaukee. You can even get RSS Feeds for these items... del.icio.us rocks!
