Looks like Drunk Shopping is coming a few days early this week thanks to Inven.tory's Happy Hour tonight. From 6pm to 8pm, snag free drinks, snacks, flavored ice and 40% off the trendy discount boutique's already-low prices on designer duds. We're not exactly sure what "flavored ice" is, but if it means we can suck on a freezer pop while touching all the pretty clothing, you can bet we'll be engaging in a dangerous cherry flavored/white clothing combination. [Correction: The event was last night. Next time, we'll have our morning coffee before we start thinking about boozing the night away] [Inven.tory]
