For months, foursquare for WebOS developer Geoff Gauchet has been waging a campaign to convince foursquare to introduce a badge for Mardi Gras. Tonight it appears his efforts have paid off. Fat Tuesday is still a few weeks away, but Mardi Gras celebrations and preparations are already in full swing in New Orleans, and for those who are participating, there’s now a Mardi Gras foursquare badge.
It’s not clear exactly what it will take to earn your own Mardi Gras badge, but I have a feeling it’s a little more complicated (albeit less demeaning) than earning beads on Bourbon Street. Of course, in true foursquare style, that’s exactly what the unlock text refers to:
Show us your badges!
This is a wonderful celebration for foursquare to mark and it’s a badge that will certainly be popular among the people of New Orleans. Best of luck to you and your krewe!
Thanks to Shawn Foret for sending this in!
