If you’ve got an iPhone or an iPad, you should check out Elixr, which allows you to check into cocktails in different venues and rate them. It’s a little bit of a mashup of a location based service with a ratings one. The app is super easy to use and has some really nice quick and easy to use features. The only downside is that the only way to find friends is to provide access to your Facebook feed.

"First, the mindfulness-seeking bartenders in the workshop are asked to make a Negroni. The ingredients (gin, sweet vermouth, and Campari) have been measured out in advance. Moments later, the same bartenders are instructed to make a Negroni again, with the exact same ingredients, only this time with a twist: They must close their eyes for a minute and simply think about someone they love. That second Negroni is supposed to be conjured up with that object of affection in mind. “And that one always tastes better than the first,” Mr. Regan said. “You’d be amazed at how well this works. It makes a tangible difference. It just does."
Awesome article. I think in one of our LARC meetings we need to try this.
