    Planning on going out tonight and want to know where you can get your drink on for cheap? Or maybe you're getting off work after a long day and you want to know what businesses on your way home are currently offering the best specials.

    If you're anything like me, you want to know where you can get your favorite drinks for the least amount of money. And now there is finally an application to help you do that! BoozeHound!

    BoozeHound is a Location-Aware social networking tool for finding alcohol specials in your city. Users post specials they find at businesses around the city which appear in your Booze Stream, from newest to oldest. Other users can verify or disclaim specials entered, to help inform others when users have entered inaccurate or falsified data.

    So whether you want to see all recent specials users have entered, or browse specials for businesses closest to your current location (and even alphabetically), BoozeHound has you covered!

    Don't see the business you're looking for in our database? Easy, add it yourself! Launch Google Maps or Google Places, find the business location you'd like to add, and 'Share' it with BoozeHound. BoozeHound then does a reverse-geocode on the address to capture Latitude and Longitude so we can accurate calculate its distance from your current location when viewing our Businesses in the future.

    Don't see your City on the Login page? Easy, add a Business in your City to BoozeHound and your City will be added as well!

    BoozeHound is in a very early, primitive state, and that's why we need YOU to help us grow our user-base and data. Users are assigned points based upon the # of businesses they add and # of times people either Verify or Disclaim specials they've posted. When BoozeHound reaches its goal, our Power Users will be the first to receive benefits, be it discounts at your favorite bar, or even FREE BOOZE!

    Join now and be one of our first Power Users! Also, the more people you convince to join in your city, the more data and thus better tool this will be for everyone! What are you waiting for? Download it from the market now!!! :eek:

    I am pleased to announce BoozeHound v1.1 was just released on the market last night. You can now subscribe to businesses to receive instant notifications via Google's C2DM (FroYo) or Email (Eclair)!!

    Other improvements include the ability to manually update your Last Know Location via Network or GPS to improve location-awareness and a partial re-design of the UI.

    People have been doing a pretty good job of adding Businesses (which also populates our cities) but so far we're still lacking on Booze Specials. The more people use this app the more beneficial it will be for everyone. So what are you waiting for?
