Fort Lauderdale's Most Popular Restaurants for Foursquare Users
For the uninitiated, Foursquare is a site for members who use phones to check-in to restaurants, bars, or any other location around a city to collect points and virtual badges. It's basically a virtual shout out in the form of a game that lets others know where you are and where you'll most often be found.
Who actually uses the site in these parts and where do they go to eat and drink? Since the site doesn't keep lists for users, we've done the legwork to cull Fort Lauderdale's most popular restaurants and bars for Foursquare users:
