Pay your bar bill from your phone

Being 5’8″ in a bar has always had its disadvantages. I’ve perfected a great technique of using both elbows, squeezing up to a bar, and ordering drinks. But once there, getting the bartenders attention away from the three girls at the end with shirts my 12 year old cousin would find small, is another order. I found a great way to save hassle when dealing with cash and paying for drinks is to just start a tab. But this can get expensive very fast, and after a few to many drinks there’s a good chance the three girls at the end of the bar are more important than making sure you get your credit card back. You then have to go back the next day and pick it up, and review your bill through very hungover eyes and not question what’s on it because you can’t remember at all!

Well it seems two very smart gentleman have realized this sort of story happens often, and they did something about it! Dash is an app that allows you to pay your bar tab straight from your phone, saving the hassle of battling for attention at the bar and at the same time easily keeping track on your bill. Come August this little app will become available in the App Store, with restaurants in New York already signed up. The expansion plan seems to be major u.s cities as of right now, but I for one see the potential for university bars! You can spend less time battling it out at the bar, and more time trying to find the confidence to talk to that girl with the shirt that see seemed to borrow from her favourite doll.
