Happy Hour in Ann Arbor Michigan

Monday, March 25th, 2013 – Good drink specials and happy hour listings.

first – no log in was required – amen and hallelujah – second of all it works!

I live in Lansing but work in Ann Arbor. I don’t know the city of Ann Arbor that well as I am confined to just the downtown area.
I tried this site and it actually worked. After trying three other so called happy hour sites, all I got were more ads and generic garbage about nothing.

The site is just for Ann Arbor, however it appears they may also have a national bar locator site too. If anyone reading this checks it out let me know how it is.

it’s, be careful not to confuse oit with drinkbank as I almost just did in this post.


IE Bug for href=”javascript:

Thursday, March 21st, 2013

So, if you are a developer like I am, and use very forward thinking code to trigger fun actions like drop-downs and script based navigation you’ve used the href=”javascript:function ” setup before.

Well that doesn’t work in the IE 7, and IE 8 realm, but what happens if you added say a jQuery work around for it so you only have to fix it in one place.

Lets try the folowing
if( $(this).attr(“href”) != ” ){
var checkStr = substr($(this).attr(‘href’),0,5);
if( checkStr == ‘javas’ ){
var thisClick = $(this).attr(‘href’);
thisClick = thisClick.explode(‘:’);

I’m not going to assume it is showing the above code correctly so lets post what it did,.
1) loop through every a tag
2) identify those that have an href
3) if href ~ javascript grab the :function call
4) assign the href:javascript to the this click function of that a
5) test
