How many times this month have you stared hungrily out the front window, dreaming of all the wonderful things you could have--a stiff Manhattan, a gourmet hot chocolate, a bag of Illy coffee--if only you could convince yourself to brave the subzero temps again?
Now you can sink back into that warm couch and order up everyday essentials (you know, like Vosges chocolate-chip pancakes), thanks to a new app, Foxtrot.
Foxtrot is the invention of two Chicago entrepreneurs who couldn’t understand why, after a long day of work, there was no service that would deliver cocktails to their office.
So they started one themselves. Foxtrot offers drink fixings, from bottles of Bulleit bourbon and Ketel One vodka to mixers and limes, plus an assortment of foods and dry goods like Oberweis chocolate milk, Stumptown cold-brew coffee, Jeni’s ice cream and Chipotle chicken burritos. You can also get fresh produce, salad and even a 12-ounce Niman Ranch strip steak.
Prices for the products are similar to what you’d pay at your neighborhood corner store, and the delivery fee is a flat $5--tip included.
That’s so worth not putting on your coat.
