    Huge thanks to those that gave me feedback about a month ago. For those that have no idea what I'm talking about, I've built a website dedicated exclusively to happy hours on the Las Vegas Strip. It started as a spreadsheet because I'm a dork and that's how I plan my vacations. It was later suggested that I turn that information into an app. Well, I don't have the resources to turn it into an app yet, so I built a website. It's mobile-friendly and I just launched it.

    http://vegashappyhours.net

    I'm still working out some of the kinks (enabling search, icons appearing in random places, etc) but I could use a few extra sets of eyes to make sure my data is comprehensive enough. If anyone is willing, I'd really appreciate your feedback if you know of any Happy Hours on the Strip that I missed.

    Whether you decide to offer feedback or not, please bookmark the site if you think it will come in handy during your next trip. I'm headed to Vegas in 16 days and plan to do a little field research for properties I definitely know are missing information (such as bars that list their happy hour times but not what the specials are). If you come across any info while you're in Vegas, please drop me a line via the Contact page and I'll make sure I update the site ASAP.

    Maybe one of these days I'll sell advertising, turn it into an app, and make a buttload of money (HA!), but for now I just want to spread the Vegas love. Cheers! :beer:


    P.S. If an admin sees this thread and thinks it would be more appropriate in another category, by all means move it.

    Bookmarked. Thanks for the great job. FYI - the link to Julian Serrano in Aria is broken.

    Thanks, I am always looking for happy hour information when in Vegas. Will bookmark this site.

    One very minor issue I have is with the dropdown hotel menu. It only displays up to the height of the screen. For usability I would recommend you put the list into a few columns so all the hotels can be viewed in a glance.

    Keep up the good work.

    Nice work. Thought maybe you could tweak the logo to incorporate the glass as the letter V. Then, later, you can use just the glass for the site logo. Just a thought.
