A new book out just in time for the holiday season would make a great gift at the office gift exchange or a stocking stuffer for the guy or gal who likes to party.
In this week's Hot Trends we feature the local and very handy, MadCity Cocktails coupon book.
A night out can be expensive if you want more than one cocktail. But the MadCity Cocktails book, for just $10, can save you a lot of money.
There are 103 bars represented in this guide. You can buy it from the bartender at each place. It works like a passport. Take it with you when you head out, when you buy one drink, hand it to the bartender.
"The bar tender just simply dates it because you can only sue one per day. they date it, they initial it and you get a buy one get one free drink for 7 bucks with no limitations."
There are 2, two for one Discount drink passports for each bar.
The book is divided into ares of Madison, downtown, east and west. But it also has bars in the suburbs including Mazomanie, McFarland, Mt. Horeb to Sun Prairie, Waunakee, Middleton and Windsor.
The idea is to get people to try new places knowing that there is a savings out there for them when they do. And in this economy, it is helping some of the suburb establishments that may be struggling.
"I hear a lot of the bar owners saying there's a lot of new faces that they haven't seen before and that's really the goal."
If you used this book at all 103 bars, you would save well over a thousand dollars.
Its also is a great guide if you want are tired of trying to figure out where to go out at night. You can break out of your comfort zone and now have a good guide to new places in south central Wisconsin. There are maps included on each page for each bar, by the way.
