An appropriately named new service called BuyYourFriendaDrink.com is enabling people to do just that.  Users can go to the website, enter in their friend’s cell phone number and the amount of money they want to spend ($5 – $250) and a text message will be sent to person on the other end with a redemption code.  That code is then handed over to participating bars and drinks are served.  Each transaction includes a $0 .99 processing fee.

The service is currently only available in New York at a select number of establishments, but there are plans to expand to other northeastern and mid-Atlantic cities with the west coast unfolding in the second half of 2007.
