Are you tired of virtual gifts that friends send you? Do you want something that exists in the real world?

A new service called bartab makes it possible for friends to use Facebook and a cell phone to send each other vouchers for drinks at bars. The sender and the recipient each pays $1.

It's one of many new services combining online and real-world social lives to make money.

San Francisco startup Webtab is behind it. Right now, the service is only available in the city.
