There's nothing like an innovation that makes a lazy act even lazier, like OnDemand meaning you don't even have to get up to go to the video store, or Basketball Wives marathons meaning you no longer even need to touch the remote for eight hours. Gloriously reducing obtaining food to a few mouse strokes: GrubHub.
Just launched in Denver, GrubHub's the free online ordering site that's already cut a fatty swath through the rest of the country, enabling you to view menus of/order delivery from 180+ Mile High City restos (and another 30 in Boulder) without ever having to get on the horn, which just like Around the Horn, can be super loud and annoying. It's seriously quite easy: plug in your address, and they'll instantly return you a list of spots currently delivering to your house and their menus (just click an item to order); or, you can sort by cuisine, and see which places are offering coupons, though you'll have to keep Grandma from trying to cut out that portion of your screen. And lest you be forced to interact with another human in any capacity, you can also type in special requests ("hold the mayo", "I require more mayo"), read reviews from other users, tag favorites to easily find them later, and browse your order history, which ought to encourage you to be more polite when demanding mayo in the future.
To celebrate the launch and because they love Thrillist, Grub's kindly offering readers $10 off their first order -- meaning just like everyone on your favorite show, your next meal's looking super cheap.
