So you know how you check in on Foursquare to tell us all where you are and thus what you're probably eating, or at least what you're about to take a picture of. (Which is how Mario Batali seems to spend an inordinate amount of time. Cheers, Mario.) And you know how we publish all kinds of Best Of lists in this lovely publication. (Best pies! Best tacos! Best ____. Please comment below.) Well, it's with all that in mind that the LA Weekly is announcing a new partnership with Foursquare.
So, what does that mean exactly?
– If you check in to any of our Best Of locations, you might just unlock our swank new badge.
– Our Voice Places event data is going to sync with Foursquare, so you can check into events, and see what we're writing about and what we think is so breathtakingly great in this town.
Foursquare is also partnering with Voice Media Group in other cities, so when you're actually in New York (or Denver, Phoenix, Dallas, Miami or, you know, Orange County), you can unlock their badges too.
So get out there and start checking in and let us know in the comments when you get our badge. Since some of us don't check Instagram nearly as often as we should, we need to know where you're eating breakfast — or downing growlers while you wait for your whole chicken and biscuits with honey butter to show up.
