• Foodspotting Is Turning One!

    Foodspotting turns one on January 15th, so we are hereby dubbing that day World Foodspotting Day! To celebrate, we're working with our friends at Meetup.com to encourage everyone to organize meetups or, really, eatups. We'd love to have Foodspotters around the world gather together to do what we do best: Eat and spot with friends :)

    Looking back on the past year, we achieved quite a bit:
    - Launched the website
    - Kicked off the iPhone app and Android app
    - More than tripled the size of our team (from 2 to 7)
    - Grew from 500 spotters to more than 500,000 iPhone app downloads
    - Worked with world-renowned partners including Travel Channel and Zagat
    - Received many accolades like Apple's iTunes App Store Best of 2010 in food and travel, as well as listed in TIME Magazine's 50 Best Websites of 2010

    So join us in raising a camera, a fork and a glass in honour of a fantastic year by attending or organizing an eatup. It's simple: If your city doesn't already have an eatup, just pick your favourite restaurant that's good for groups and add your eatup to the Meetup.com page. Email me if you're leading an eatup so I can send you some schwag to give out.

    And if you're in the Bay Area, the Foodspotting team is hosting a party that night of January 15th, so save the date and stay tuned for more details! FT

    Love Foodspotting? Put your town on the map by hosting an eatup!
