Drink Deck, 2nd Edition

| September 2, 2010 | 8 Comments

“I just wanted to create a deal that people knew they were getting a great value out of” says Will Glass, founder of Drink Deck. In a nutshell, the Drink Deck looks like any normal deck of cards with a big difference. Each card also serves as a $10 gift card to a bar, restaurant or even a bowling alley! The name of the participating venue is printed on the card. With the savings totalling $520 it sure is a great deal and worth the $30 price.

After selling 1100 deck in 5 months, Will decided it’s time for the 2nd edition of Drink Deck to come out. There was a launch party at Trader Vic’s in Chicago where guests had a great time playing Black Jack and hearing Will Glass talk more about why he loves this product “Drink Deck never expires so you remember it when you want and if you don’t then you’ll never have to worry about an expiration date”. What I thought was a cool idea is putting up a map on Drink Deck’s website with all the participating venues so if you want to plan a night out then it’s a prefect place to see what’s close to what. With all these great add-ons you really can’t go wrong! Go on, check out Drink Deck‘s site and say hi to them on twitter. Big thumbs up for the dynamic duo @Pavlovic and @Nduhoski for organizing such a great event! Follow them to learn more about them and why they say “Social Media Strategy and PR is our game”.

    I love the paramount room! Such a cool space upstairs and down. Great specials , cool staff, great food , and also a drink deck bar. The all you can eat fried chicken special and the Scottish egg are to die for.

  3. If not on our dock cocktailing with boat neighbors, (http://fdock.net/) we head to the Gage. Great food, great service, and the bartenders are the best.
