Yelp Does Something Worthwhile, Gives You Cheap Booze

Allow me a second to pour on some haterade. Yelp provides a good basic service at its core, but it leads to abuses of power that drown out any actual establishments voice in its own reputation. Frankly, any star system seems pretty petty when trying to objectify an opinion, and

Win a FREE Haircut at Metamorphosis Salon

I wish I lived in a salon. Inspired by Sarah’s guide-to-cutting-your-own-hair post last week, I went digging in my really old and disgusting clear closet organizer thing where I knew an aging pair of shears were buried somewhere.  See, I used to have bangs, and I would always cut my

5 Day Extension On Holiday Bingeing Courtesy of Yelp’s Holiday Hangover

Flipper’s — Your New Cheap Weekday Breakfast Joint

When most people think of Flipper’s, A Gourmet Hamburger Place, I’m betting they probably think of burgers.  While it’s true that the menu at Flipper’s features almost 20 different kinds of burgers, it’s actually more like a Squat & Gobble-type restaurant offering everything from salad to crepes to falafel platters.

Yelp or Foursquare: Where would you rather check-in?

I have conflicting feelings about Foursquare. On the one hand, it’s a kind of boring concept ‘“ a phone app that lets people know where you are via check-ins? Sounds a lot like Twitter but with less words (and who knew that was even possible?) But in spite of this,

Cheap Roses from the Crying Rose Man

I think I would give roses to more people if they weren’t so expensive. Single stems can go for up to nine bucks a pop or more, which is a totally ridiculous investment for something that’s gonna die on you in a matter of hours. I agree with the Jennifer
