When you're in a big city, there's at-hand information on everything from where to eat, to where to poop out that food -- but don't people eat and poop in Framingham, Mass, too? Now they do, thanks to TownMe.
Using a Yelpish model of user-created, edited, and curated webpages, TM's goal is to create a city-guide-esque page for every town in the country, so you can get the lowdown on what's going on even off the beaten path, without the hassle of asking the overall-clad cashier at the general store who won't stop winking at you. Most towns have pages already; just punch in a burg for a full breakdown of businesses and points of interest (Food+Drink, Nightlife, Tourism, etc), and based on users' submissions and reviews, find "Best" lists (Pizza, Diners, Shopping, Places to Work Out...) as well as specialty lists and info like "Places to Make Out", "Places With Free Parking", and "Dating Ideas In Ann Arbor", for which user William C. suggests "Go to PetSmart...If you don't like furry little creatures, you probably don't have a soul", because it's always best to get that soullessness thing out there early in the relationship. If you're looking for things in your direct vicinity, check the "What's Near Me" tab to pull up a GMap with color-coded dots (e.g., orange=food, green=banks, purple=laundromats), or scroll the "Town Tweets" section to get a rundown on what local Twitter fiends're up to, like "Just saw people making out at a dumpster", "Aint gun lie I'm lit like a birthday candle!", "I had a really stupid question but thank god I forgot it". Yes, thank God.
Also included in each city/town profile are the cold hard facts (population/education/income stats) culled from census data, so you know exactly how many people you'll be behind on the other line at Starbucks to get the job done.
