Apparently, Westporters don’t need bargains anymore — they’re back to paying full price for everything.
How else to explain that only 1 — 1! — Westporter checked in to Foursquare.com last week to claim the free iced coffee available every Friday at Crumbs?
Sure, iced coffee costs (substantially) less than the mondo, multi-colored and mega-sugared cupcakes served up behind (ahem) Tiffany.
Still, “free” is not a bad price.
Are you taking advertisements now???
Much as I love, admire and respect you (2 of my kids and my wife were students at Staples with you) and I am probably in the .009% of your readers who actually knows what Foursquare is, I’m hardly one to use it. Frankly, although I have 2 friends my age who are Facebook freaks , one of whom is also a Tweeter, and post/blog daily I refuse to participate. Although I am the most wired of my 60’s contemporaries (yes those of us who are 60’s folks are currently 60’s folks as well..get it?) I refuse to participate in socializing with total strangers outside of reality when I do engage complete strangers daily and always have. That said, I’m certain the bargains offered through Foursquare are awesome dude even if it means sharing your whereabouts with others.
I was the one who got the the free iced coffee. Accompanied with a paid-for cupcake I didn’t need. Four Square and other location-based online services will continue to grow in importance for Westport and all other towns. I can see increased use in Westport whenever I lose one of my Four Square Mayorships in town. Most painful Mayorship to lose was the one for Westport Town Hall; Liz Mitchell of Westport Patch has been spending more time there than I have. And losing the Sunny Daes Mayorship to Dana S was also difficult http://foursquare.com/venue/552748
PS. FourSquare also offered a 25% off promotion for those who checked in at the Gap.
Why am I not surprised that @JohnMcCarthy was the one? 🙂
Weel, Mr. @cacheop, if it wasn’t me, you would have been a good bet!
Its Friday, taking a break to walk the dog and go claim my free coffee at Crumbs in exchange for my foursquare check in.
