Apparently Booze Carriage has existed in New York City for some time, allowing users to go online to purchase beer, wine, spirits, and mixers and have them delivered to your door in 30-60 minutes without any sort of delivery fee or markups. This seems like the ultimate tool to use before hosting a house party!
Well, Booze Carriage is now making it even easier to use their services as they’ve just launched an iPhone app! Now, no matter where you’re at, you can order all the drinks you’ll need. The only requirements for using Booze Carriage is that users must be 21+ (duh) and orders must total $20 minimum.

Iconic potter, designer, author – and annual runner of the Shelter Island 10k — Jonathan Adler has lent his talents to support this year’s event. Held on June 21, 2014, the Shelter Island 10K is an annual highlight of the summer.
To commemorate the race’s 35th anniversary, Jonathan Adler’s Americana inspired t-shirt will be given to race participants and sold to raise funds for the race’s charity beneficiaries: East End Hospice, the Timothy Hill Children’s Ranch, and the Shelter Island Run Community Fund.
For non-runners (or those unable to participate), the t-shirt can also be purchased for $25 by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nestled between the North and South forks of Long Island, Shelter Island is a lush, wooded haven and its annual 10K has been touted as one of the country’s most beautiful runs by Runner’s World magazine. With a pre-sunset start time of 5:30 p.m., race participants will enjoy the beauty of this tiny island, including picturesque views of the harbor, an abundance of nature and the warm local community. Shelter Island is accessible by a 10-minute ferry ride from either Greenport or Sag Harbor.
Pre-registration is strongly suggested as the race is limited to 2,500 and participants are accepted on first-come, first-serve basis. Runners can sign up at shelterislandrun.com or nycruns.com for $38.
