Get the door, it's the liquor store
Many of New England’s small towns carry folktales passed along from the area’s original Native American tribes. Hamden, a suburb... of New Haven, Connecticut has exactly such a story. Hamden is situated amongst state parks and country clubs; expansive green spaces and walking trails are the norm. Most notably, a small mountain (roughly 800 feet) named Mount Carmel looms to the north. Story goes that the mountain is actually a sleeping giant, punished to eternal sleep by an amiable spirit. In fact, Hamden’s nickname is “The Land of the Sleeping Giant.” Luckily, Drizly’s alcohol delivery service is more than a myth. After a long day on the trails (or maybe just an afternoon watching the Pats at one of Hamden’s many taverns), you can rely on Drizly for your nightcap. Skip the extra trip to the liquor store and see their inventory online through Drizly’s website. The quick delivery lets you stay home for the evening with a smoky scotch or rich bourbon. It’s never been easier to lounge on your favorite sofa and channel your own version of the fabled sleepy giant.
