Pink Taco to go right at your fingertips. Order a round of drinks from the center bar. Prefer to place an order at Johnny Smalls without stepping into the over-sized, pumped-up jukebox? Perhaps some Chinese fuel from Mr. Lucky's before boarding the flight home.
To get started the app only needs a phone number, name, 4 digit PIN, and date of birth. We test ordered up a bucket of Buds and a Captain Morgan's (the app asks if you want it straight up, neat, on the rocks, or monster) for a total $33 before gratuity which you can add at the poke of a button. We didn't say the drinks were any cheaper but it does look like the Hard Rock is giving out a ten dollar credit at the moment for checking out the app.
Store a credit card number in the app and the next round is on you. One drawback is having to actually go pick up the drink and food order. A minor detail but one to keep in mind when planning your exit from the table, hotel room, or other private space you find yourself with the munchies. Rest assured you can still place sports bets without walking anywhere.
Once Pago expands beyond the Hard Rock, we could see ourselves using it at the right spots. Fatburger at the end of a losing night anyone? It even tracks your receipts in case the previous night's escapades need some piecing together over a venti double double hot scoopa scoopa molten lava pumpkin spice. Which you can order from the Hard Rock Starbucks and pay for via Pago.
Download Pago for the iPhone, Android, or Blackberry now with WP7 coming soon.
