There are plenty of shady pubs in London, both literally and figuratively. But for the times when you desperately need some vitamin D with your pint, there's finally an online app that will show you the light. Literally.
The London-based company POKE recently developed Pints in the Sun, a nifty web tool that allows you to easily find a pub near you that won't be in the shade, in two simple steps. First, find a pub by either searching for a specific spot, or just browsing the map to find one that you like the look of. Then, just slide the sun timeline at the bottom of the map to see -- in genuinely impressive 3D -- exactly when shadows will be encroaching on your chosen drinkery at any time of the day.
