My mom friends have been raving about the new grocery delivery service in the Tampa area. This, of course, can save time and money (avoiding impulse buys), but you know what every mom really wants delivered? Wine. Or beer. Or some other beverage that will take the edge off.
Hold on to your seat moms….it’s here! No, really! I was in just as much disbelief as you are right now, but it’s true!
Scene #1: You are at home. With a screaming toddler. All.day.long. You know trying to take this bundle of joy to the store will only result in more crying (probably yours). It’s nap time (finally!) and you reach for your favorite bottle of wine only to realize that you polished it off last night after said toddler fell asleep after two hours of hysterical protesting they weren’t tired. NO wine? No problem! Drizly!
Scene #2: You and the family are enjoying some friends over for a great BBQ. Food is on the grill, people are getting hungry, you are amazed that you have pulled this all together. Until…someone says, “Hey, you got some more beer?” You realize (face palm)…you’re out of beer. Everyone has a few beers already, so no one wants to run out for more. Boom! Problem solved. Drizly!
Scene #3: It’s been a looooong day at work. The last thing you want to do is go to the store, but something mixed and fruity sure would be good with some nachos right now. Yep, you guessed it…Drizly.

Once your friendly Drizly driver arrives, provide your ID for verification and you’re all set. You add the tip for the driver within the app, so you don’t even need cash on hand!
I was seriously impressed that my order arrived in less than 30 minutes!
Ha! Scene 3 was totally me yesterday! I placed my order on my phone while sitting in the parking lot. Super easy! I smiled all the way home, knowing I was going to be receiving a special delivery within the hour!
Sounds good, but it’s expensive, right?
Nope, the deliver charge is a nominal $5 in Tampa, and all items are exactly what you would pay in store. There is no mark up on prices. Seriously.
