Trouble finding an at-home COVID-19 test these days? They're slightly hard to come by with cases surging, but maybe the answer lies in one New Jersey restaurant's Happy Hour.

I can't help but applaud the sheer ingenuity of Cenzino for thinking this up. It's a creative way to encourage someone to get tested for Coronavirus while bringing in customers at the same time. Not to mention, the 'Vaccinator' sounds like a pretty tasty cocktail.
