San Francisco bar gives away drinks to Google Glass wearers


San Francisco bar gives away drinks to Google Glass wearers
In a bid to project itself as a tech haven, Stanford Court hotel is offering a free cocktail to Google Glass Explorers.
NEW YORK: Wear Google Glass and get your drink absolutely free at this bar at a San Francisco-based hotel. 

Many hotels in the US have even banned visitors wearing the wearable gadget. But the Stanford Court hotel is doing just the opposite. 

In a bid to project itself as a tech haven, Stanford Court hotel is offering a cocktail on the house to anyone who visits the bar wearing Google Glass. 

"We want to attract the tech crowd, so we are telling Google Glass wearers they are welcome along with everyone else," Stanford Court hotel's general manager Michael Baier said, as per a USA Today report. 

The promotion began this week and so far, "a couple of dozen people have come in and taken advantage of it", Baier said. 

What you need to do in return for the free drink? Just a photo using the glasses and a tweet using the hashtag #stanfordcourt. In fact, many have already tweeted and retweeted the offer. 

Google Glass has caused quite a furore as many see the device as an affront to privacy since they can be used to secretly photograph and video whoever the wearer is looking at. 

Google has distributed the device to about 10,000 'Explorers' who paid $1,500 to test them before the glasses are made available commercially later this year.
