If there's one story worth adding to My Thrillist, it's The Girls of Coachella. But if there's another, it's The Girls of the Miami Heat Dancer Auditions. But if there's a third, it's definitely The Girls of the Hot Bartender Olympics. But man, if there's a fourth, it's this one: finally-available-in-Philly Seva Call.
Seva Call's sorta like Match.com for un-sexy services, and's super simple to use: 1) go to the site, 2) type in what you're looking for (plumber, accountant, chiropractor...), 3) tell 'em how urgently you need a response (now, later, OH-MY-GOD-MY-HOUSE-IS-FLOODING), and 4) describe your problem in detail, e.g. my chiropractor, uh, "audited" my plumbing. From there, they'll quickly (about 2min) find nearby fix-it dudes, who'll call you in an attempt to win your business, but not before you have a chance to vet them via past customer ratings, and rankings based on a super-secret algorithm.
Oh, and as if you need another reason to add this to My Thrillist, Seva's getting closer to launching iOS & Android apps, which you'll totally wanna use to find a personal trainer who can help you snag one of those Girls of Coachella/Miami Heat Dancers/Hot Bartenders.
