When you were growing up you probably never said to yourself, “Someday I will be able to pick up a delicious dinner and a fancy ziplock bag filled with booze.” But that day is here. Someday is today. This is everything we never knew we always wanted.
Can you go to New Orleans today? No. Can you order a Sally’s Hurricane, Mississippi Mojito, or a Georgia Peach ready-made cocktail in a bag that comes with a bendy straw? Hells yes you can. What happens in the bag, stays in the bag. Laissez les bon temps rouler, y’all.
The Place 2 Be opened a new location in Downtown Hartford with a great big outdoor patio, so you can get their Frozen Strawberry Rose or their Sangria Slushy from TWO PLACES in Hartford. Want your Froze 2 Go? You bet your sweet thirst trap.
Red Rock Tavern has the prettiest frozen margs this side of the Mississippi. A bag of Skittles can’t hold a candle to a tequila soaked rainbow of margaritas. We want to collect them all.
Agave has been killing the to-go game, and their booze pouch choices are on point with Spicy Guava, Mango, Strawberry and Good Ol’ Original (LIMEY). Our comprehensive clinical study* shows that drinking Agave margaritas will reduce your chances of getting Scurvy by 100%.
*We drank a bunch of margaritas and none of us have Scurvy.
Bashner’s Liquors has a really impressive selection of spirits and stuff, but boozy frozen fun pops are the coolest. Frozen fun bags filled with Mojito, Pina Colada, Cosmo and Daiquiri Red? YES PLEASE.
Nestled inside Parkville Market, you’ll find Twisted Italian where you can get a fishbowl cocktail inside a bag to wash down your chicken cutlet grinder. It’ll be just like when you were a kid and you won a goldfish at a county fair by hurling a ping pong ball into a fishbowl. Only this time instead of a real fish, it’s candy and instead of disgusting carnival water, it’s a delicious cocktail. And instead of winning the fish, taking the fish home, naming it Goldie or Pony Boy, killing it immediately, and flushing it down the toilet, you just drink your drink and remember all the times that other thing happened.
V’s Trattoria has a gorgeous patio and some picture-perfect heaters, but if you’re in more of a “curl-up-in-a-ball-and-drink-in-my-pajamas-in-this-pillow-fort-I-built-in-my-closet” mood these days, you can order a “Contactless Craft Cocktail” in un saccheto to take home.
