Bar Tag with Wiffiti

Bar tagWe took Ponzi’s car in to get an enema this morning, leaving us with an hour of free time to grab a bite to eat down the street. Few restaurants (in the area) were open at 10:30am, but Hurricane Cafe is open 24 hours a day. Turns out, they’ve got an amazing menu. What’s more, since they cater to a younger crowd (at all hours), they’ve hung a plasma TV above the bar – pictured here. At the bottom of the screen, you’ll read: “txt H2 + a message to 87884” (go ahead, try it). Seconds after sending your text, you’ll see it bouncing around with the other messages on-screen. Even if you’re not there, the people who ARE there will see your message. Too freakin’ cool!

I had problems using it with my Smartphone at first (not having a subject area, I just needed to insert H2 and a space before typing my text message). As such, I received a few bounces: “Sorry, Wiffiti did not recognize your screen ID.” Dude, check it out – the Hurricane screen is online! What’s more, Wiffiti has a blog. I want one of these hanging on my wall. Had you heard about Wiffiti before? You gotta see it to believe it. I’ll take some txt soup to go!
