Zomato - Highway to Somewhere

Several years ago in San Francisco where Brady and I were doing one of our annual ball park trips, I told Brady that I was in the mood for a pizza.  He immediately whipped out his cell phone, did some on line searching and noted that there was a good pizza place approximately one block from our hotel.  I was impressed at how quickly he had made this discovery and asked him how he did it.  Brady replied "Urban Spoon."

At the time I didn't have a Smart Phone so the whole App thing was new to me.  However, once I did get my upgraded phone years later, Urban Spoon, now Zomato  was one of the first apps that I downloaded

As with my San Francisco example above, Zomato comes in handy when you are travelling somewhere and want to locate a nearby restaurant.  Along with descriptions of the various eateries in the area you are visiting are customer reviews of the restaurant.  These reviews will typically run the gamut from lousy reviews to those with high praise.  Reading them collectively gives you an overall idea of what to expect.  Too, some of the review comments are kinda funny.  For example, someone commented on one of our South County restaurants by saying that while the food was very good, the service "was glacial."  Guess where that was.

The following video reminded me of all those B Movies where the made-up-to-be-a-nerd female turns out to be anything but.  You know what I'm talking about:  she's got her hair up, wearing big glasses, and dressed like a dork when you first see her.  However, as the plot spins out, well just watch this and you'll see what I'm talking about here.
