For Lazy Tipplers, There's an Uber of Alcohol

Something used to bother Chris Vaughn as he sat at home with his girlfriend. With their iPhone, they could conjure up a cab with Uber. They could get a meal with Seamless. But when they needed a drink, their smartphones were useless. So Vaughn and two partners founded Saucey, a Los Angeles startup with an app that allows users to have alcohol brought to their door. The Los Angeles Times recently called it “the Uber of liquor delivery.”

Saucey, which was officially launched in May, has a squad of drivers who will go to your local liquor store and pick up a bottle of your favorite, plus extras if you need them. (Of course, you’ll need to provide ID.)
