There's been a rash of new booze and food delivery service apps to hit Dallas lately (see: Favor, Postmates, Caviar, and MiniBar) but those living outside the Downtown/Uptown bubble are typically left out in the cold. Now thanks to a new arrival called Lash, Collin County residents residing in Plano, Allen, Fairview, South Frisco and South McKinney can be just as lazy as the rest of us and get beer, wine, and liquor delivered straight to their front doors.
The name might seem like it'd be better suited to a beauty salon, but per a press release for said app, in the UK the word lash "symbolizes fun times partaking spirits with a close group of friends." Rather than merely serving as a third-party delivery coordinator, the company has its own in-house delivery fleet that rolls around town in Lash-branded vans, which it says allows them to "manage the total consumer experience and brand from the first click to the delivery."
Lash delivers not only beer, wine, and spirits, but also mixers, from sugar-free Red Bull to bloody mary mix and artisanal tonic water, plus bottle openers, shot glasses, and uh, Trojans (really). The beer selection includes pretty much everything you'd find in your local supermarket (Bud Light, Michelob, Dos Equis, Tecate, et al.) and a decent selection of craftier options from breweries like Maredous, Real Ale, and Rogue, plus local brews from Franconia and Revolver (hey there, Blood & Honey). Meanwhile, the wine selection runs the gamut from jugs of Carlo Rossi swill to $300+ bottles of Ace of Spades.
While prices are somewhat higher than what you might pay at a local store, you're clearly paying for the convenience factor here — an effort that's furthered by users' ability to schedule deliveries up to a week in advance and pick a time slot that's convenient for them. Lash offers delivery Monday through Saturday from 1 to 9 p.m.; orders over $35 get free delivery, otherwise it's five bucks. The Lash app can be downloaded via iTunes or the Google Play store; scope out a map of its delivery zones here.
