WHAT’S UP WITH THE NEW SITE?
We’re just a few local guys trying to make a killer website. We love deals, and we want to share these with you so you can try all the amazing venues that we have in the Twin Cities!

Still having problems viewing or accessing information from the old site? Please call us at 612-246-4373 and we’ll be able to help you find what you’re looking for.
DO I HAVE TO SIGN IN WITH FACEBOOK TO USE THE SITE?
Everything you could do on the last site is completely the same as the new site. Find happy hours and drink specials when you want in any local location. The ONLY exception is with writing bar or happy hour reviews; these require you to sign in.
I WANT TO SIGN IN, CAN I KEEP MY WHEREABOUTS PRIVATE?
We NEVER display information to other people that you don’t want it displayed to. The friend search feature is ONLY for friends and ONLY for events and check-ins that you list publicly. We sort the information differently to make it searchable, but no one will ever be able to see anything they wouldn’t see on Foursquare or Facebook. In fact, much less.
HOW DO YOU KEEP THE SITE ACCURATE?
We try our best! ThriftyHipster.com updates happy hours and drink specials daily. We have a full-time staff to call and call and call… We also have local writers for events, concerts, and other cool stuff going on.
But we also rely on you! That is why, if you accurately flag a special that is out of date, not only will we call and update it the next day, but we’ll throw your name in a hat to win a $100 Gift Card. So please, if you’re out and see anything off, let us know!
DO YOU GUYS HAVE A MOBILE APP?
Yes! Look in the Android and ITunes stores for Thrifty Hipster. If you don’t have one of those, don’t worry, just go to http://thriftyhipster.com and you’ll be routed to our mobile formatted site. It’s not as cool, but it’s great for finding a happy hour on the go.
SOME STUFF LOOKS WONKY… AND SOME BARS AREN’T LISTED
Make sure you have filters that aren’t preventing you from finding a bar.
Also, our website works best in Firefox, Safari, and Chrome. There are known issues with Internet Explorer. (hopefully you’ll skip this question, we’re working non-stop!)
