18 Apr

Three Chicago-Themed Badges

Foursquare users can earn special three Chicago ‘badges’ by checking in at a number of citywide locations relevant to one of three iconic Chicago themes: Chicago Blues, Chicago-style hot dogs, and Chicago film locations.

What is Foursquare?

Foursquare is a FREE downloadable game for smart phones and other mobile Internet devices. Users sign up for an account and ‘check in’ at different attractions around the city: museums, cafes, bars, restaurants and parks, for example, to earn points and interact with other users by leaving tips for them to discover.
