Booze at your doorstep
“Not since the repeal of Prohibition in 1933 have the liquor laws changed so drastically,” said Gary He in Eater.com. In the past week or so, state liquor authorities from New York to Illinois to Texas have passed measures to allow bars and/or restaurants—many stressed by forced closures—to start delivering wine, beer, liquor, and even cocktails to customers at home. Check with your favorite local spot to see if they’re delivering. If not, try one of these apps to supply your next quaff or “quarantini”:
Drizly Boston-based Drizly now offers delivery in 100 cities. Contactless ID scanning is offered.
Minibar Like Drizly, Minibar purchases the products it delivers from local liquor stores and delivers in most big cities.
Wine Access This Napa-based service offers a large curated selection of wines at various price points and ships to 42 states.
