A few weeks ago, New Jersey foursquare user Jimmy Kastner created a foursquare list of diners in his home state and tweeted it as exhibit A for why foursquare should have a diner badge. It’s clear that someone at foursquare was listening (probably this guy). Today they launched the Greasy Spoon badge, your reward for checking in at five or more diners.
The unlock text reads:
Sticky vinyl booths, bottomless mugs of joe, apple pie fresh out of the display caseâ€¦ Does that waitress have syrup on her hairnet? Sounds like diner heaven to us. Now that you’ve hit 5, treat yourself to onion rings. Or a milkshake. We suggest both.
After a serious health push with badges last year, it’s funny to see how foursquare’s badge diet has changed lately. We’ve seen badges for bakeries, Man v Food eateries, pizza places and now, the ultimate insult to your wasteline, diners.
What do you think of the new badge?
