Cheers To Drinks Deals From

If you think social group buying sites have been all abuzz lately, here’s one that’s guaranteed to give you back some “buzz” – San Diego-based online deal site eDrinkit ( gets you access to deals on drinks and VIP bottle deals at local hotspots (the clubbing, not the Wi-Fi, kind).

eDrinkit works with popular nightclubs, bars and restaurants to negotiate drink specials (which range from 50- to 90-percent off regular prices), which are sent to thousands of subscribers in a free weekly email, and can also be accessed through the company’s Web site.

“Although there are several group buying sites available today, we believe building personal relationships with each venue is the key in differentiating ourselves from similar platforms,” states Omid Sabet, co-owner of eDrinkit.  “Our experience and knowledge about the nightlife industry, plus our ability to target offers to a particular demographic desired by each business, are what truly sets us apart from the rest.”

Sabet adds that although the company currently focuses primarily on drink and VIP bottle service deals, it will be expanding its offerings this September to include other deals, including limo and party bus transportation deals, and the company’s series of tours to breweries, wineries and such.

I’m sure this will get some people deliriously drunk and happy.
