Or, “Need Yelp Help”.
One thing I love about the B’s is that they try anything and everything once. San Diego is so enormous that sometimes MK and I got in to a routine and didn’t often stray from it. So while we were there visiting and in need of some celebrating, we took to our fancy phones to find a place for lunch we’d all never been to before.
I tried Urbanspoon first, an app that is like casino slots, you give it a shake and it picks neighborhood, price, and cuisine, then suggests a restaurant. Our location was yielding too many chain restaurants, so MB suggested I try Yelp.
I was hesitant, I’ve never had a good experience with that site. Maybe I’m doing it wrong, you tell me. He suggested I type in “best margaritas”. The site did indeed pull up a bunch of Mexican restaurants, so we figured we were good. We picked one with great reviews, or many stars or whatever.
We get there, and the food was only okay, and there were no margaritas. They didn’t even sell them. What did I do wrong? Why did Yelp put this place in my results?
I mentioned once before the other problem I have – if you aren’t just telling me the restaurant was clean, and the service was good, how on earth can I relate to you? I clearly didn’t have the same taste buds as the people that loved the place, and voted NO margaritas as ‘best margaritas’.
I kep forgetting that not everyone has a smartphone (get with it already sheeple) but for those of you that do – is anyone experimenting with layar or any other augmented reality app?
