BURRITO BRACKET UPDATE!

elpelontaqueria:

Hey everyone!

I am super excited to let you know that we have won the first round in the burrito bracket put out by FiveThirtyEight.com!!!
We beat Anna’s! Woo hoo!
This means customers will absolutely be talking about how we won. PLEASE refrain from any shit talking or boasting. We are not like that. El Pelon has always been modest and we are proud and humbled to have won this first round. Can’t wait to see what happens in the second round! But please seriously even if a customer is like “yayy you won anna’s sucks!!’ don’t agree with them. You can say you are happy we won and whatever but we need to be good competitors and stay away from shit talking or any bad attitude. We are good sports so please act that way!
Also, please share the link i posted on the el pelon fb to your personal pages! You should be proud we won this round! hooray!

great burritos. great people.

A brand new Foursquare, with a brand new logo and look, is almost ready for you

foursquare:

Everyone explores the world differently – guided by their own unique tastes, their friends, and the people they trust. Local search has never been good at this. It doesn’t get you, and, as a result, everyone gets the same one-size-fits-all results. Why should two very different people get the same recommendations when they visit Paris? Or the same list of places when they’re looking for a bar?  We’re about to change that. In a couple weeks, we’re rolling out a brand new version of Foursquare that’s all about you.  Tell us what you like, and we’ll be on the lookout for great places that match your tastes, wherever you are.

This means a few changes.

  • First, starting tomorrow, we’re moving all check-ins to our new app, Swarm. Don’t worry; all your past check-ins, all your friends, all your photos, they’re all automatically in Swarm.

    Over three-quarters of you are already on the new app. (Thank you! And keep sending us feedback; we’re hustling on making improvements every day – get a preview of what’s next here) For everyone still using Foursquare to check in, you’ll need to download Swarm to keep checking in.
  • Second, if you build a totally new app, you need a totally new logo. Our logo is changing from the check-in checkmark to something representing the new Foursquare. We designed it to be a mix of map pin and superhero emblem. We’ve always thought of Foursquare as giving you superpowers to explore your city, and our new logo reflects that vision. It’s coming soon to a homescreen near you.

  • Finally, we wanted to give everyone a peek at what’s coming. Here’s what you see when you open the new Foursquare. No two people view the world exactly the same, so no two people will have the same experience with the app. Once you teach Foursquare a couple things about you – add tastes, follow experts, or even just walk around for a few days – the app will be 100% yours.

If you use both Swarm and Foursquare, they work seamlessly together. On the left, a venue page for a person who only uses Foursquare. On the right, there is a check-in button if you have Swarm installed.

This is the beginning of the ‘personalized local search’ future we’ve been talking about since we started Foursquare. It’s been built with the help of our amazing 50,000,000-strong community, with all your tips, check-ins, photos, and the smarts we layered on top of that. Those of you have been with us since the beginning, your check-ins and history will continue to help shape your recommendations. For those of you giving us a try for the first time – you still get all the benefits of a better way to explore any neighborhood, no check-ins required.

We can’t wait to get this in your hands. If you use Foursquare to check in, download Swarm today. And, if you’ve been waiting for real local search, not just the yellow pages on your phone, stay tuned. The all new Foursquare will be here really soon.
