Friday. Ever since I’ve worked in a 9-5(ish) office job, few words have brought such music to my ears.
Even at 6am when the sun comes up - the shrill tone of my alarm clock becomes a harmonious symphony, welcoming the dawn of a glorious new Friday.
On Friday, there’s a sense of anticipation in the air, and you can taste the familiar, golden kiss of a knock-off drink already trickling down the back of your throat. Office workers across the globe spend their day at work with a bounce in their step and the wind in their hair, adopting the ‘TGIF’ catch-cry with every click of the send button.
And in bustling Brissy – Fridays have just got even better.
Alfredo’s Pizzeria have upped the ante with another feather in their cap: pizza and alcohol delivery until late. If you're finding that hard to digest, let me break it down for you. Pizza and alcohol. Delivery. UNTIL LATE.
Yep. The little red vespas are delivering pizza AND alcohol from Sunday to Thursday, 12pm to 2.30pm and 5pm to midnight, and on Fridays and Saturdays, from 12pm until 1am.
That means having to bring a higher pair of heels, a kit load of war paint and a shorter skirt to go out for knock-off drinks is a thing of the past; you can have knock-off drinks right in your office.
And with saving for a first home now meaning cutting out all social excursions for the next decade - or selling an organ/limb/first born child on the black market - people are looking for new ways to entertain at home. With Alfredo's new delivery service, you can bank the money you would have spent on new threads, a taxi and copious espresso martinis at the bar straight into your Dollarmites account.
Simply invite your friends over, slip into your snuggie, and let the good stuff come to you.
And it's not just your standard can't-tell-the-difference-between-the-cardboard-box-and-the-base pizza either. It's the deliriously delicious, life-changing Alfredo's pizza, with a host of their other tasty dishes on offer as well. Choose from the starters, pasta, sides, pizza and desserts available from the delivery menu, and wash down with your pick of bevvies (including beer, wine and 700ml bottles of bourbon, whiskey, vodka, gin and two types of rum). Minimum orders are $25, and delivery surcharge is just five bucks!
Friday nights out have just become Friday nights in. The only question left to ask; why hasn’t anyone done this before? Genius!
