Your fear of running out of alcohol at your next party has gone away, thanks to Delivery Dudes in Delray Beach. This restaurant delivery service has just expanded — and recently launched Dudes Liquor. Through this, you can now order your favorite wine and spirits online and it will be delivered straight to your door, that is, if you live in Delray Beach. From a $14.99 bottle of Vista Point Chardonnay to a $94.99 bottle of Darioush, they have something for everyone’s liking.

While delivery service is normally $5 (cash) and $7 (with a credit card), during the month of September, Delivery Dudes is offering free delivery for Dudes Liquor.

Cheers to making your evenings just a little happier.
