After the joy of drinking comes the pain of paying the bill, especially back in the '90s if you were a city contractor whose connections could get you a meeting at Sylvia's with Mayor Campbell. Unable to ease that kind of suffering, but at least making it easier to close out a check, Tabbed Out
Started by a theft-prevention software developer and finally launching in Atlanta, Tabbed's a free app that works like a remote control for your bar bill, letting you monitor, manage, and pay it directly from your iPhone or Android, if its creepy-ass human thumbs have evolved enough by this point for it to handle money. Connect Tabbed to your debit or c-card, then show the code it generates to your server at participating locations, and you'll be all linked; "Bill Details" keeps track of your progress/mounting debt, and lets you add a tip before simply tapping the "Pay" button, but not a PayDay button, because really, who can handle an unlimited, completely delicious combination of peanuts around a center of caramel? Currently you can use it in on ATL's L.E.S. (Parish, Two Urban Licks), VaHi (Murphy's), and Midtown spots like Room and Lobby at Twelve, Marlow's, and One Midtown Kitchen, though hit that after all the others, and you'll be seeing at least two of them
For just $0.99 they'll make it easy to expense the night by emailing you a copy of your receipts, which of course Campbell would've turned down, because what happens in Vegas, and Sylvia's, and Justin's, stays in Vegas, and Sylvia's, and Justin's.
