Nightlife SMS alerts from Down2night

New service lets you know what's up.

Attention Seattle-based readers: you now have access to the alpha test version of Down2Night, a text-messaging service that keeps you up-to-date on what's happening after dark. Seattle's the first city that this just-launched service covers, but it's hoping to expand soon.

It actually sounds like a pretty cool idea. "Subscribe" to your favorite bars, clubs, and the like, and you'll get an SMS alert in the "early evening" that details the goings-on at your hotspots of choice that night. Down2Night also hopes to add incentive features so that businesses can use it to offer discounts and promotions. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like you can use the service to discover new nightlife spots--unless the website expands its non-mobile features to include that sort of feature. But I guess Yelp already has that base covered.
