We call it: Skeptical Investigation. (Trademark pending.)
A new-to-town website called Qwiker Liquor has the noble goal of becoming the GrubHub for liquor stores by delivering your favorite libations to your door in an hour or less. It was either that or curing cancer. We admire their courage.
The service is currently in beta for Chicago (they also serve New York and LA). They only have a handful of liquor stores participating.
This weekend, our intrepid lead investigator was too afraid to face marauding green hordes to get his St. Paddy’s supplies: a giant bottle of Irish whiskey, a sixer of Guinness and a case of green beer. Actually, this makes the investigator more of a coward than intrepid. Anyway, he turned to this service for help.
The whiskey and the stout arrived precisely 43 minutes after placing the order. The liquor store, however, did not stock green beer.
So... another test passed.
