This is a bit scary. Want to know if a particular Bar or Restaurant is crowded before you go there? You can request a photo or video on Crowdmug and find out in minutes. You decide how much you are willing to pay and send in a request on your iPhone. If someone is at the place and accepts, they will take a picture for you. You can also take pictures and/or movies of your favorite place and upload them for free.
Crowdmug bills itself as the site to help you find out about a place before going there. It hopes to build a large library of photos for your viewing pleasure. The samples are quite well done and each place includes a map along with the photo. I imagine some bars and restaurants might upload photos, just to be included in the database.

Here is a site that promises to be the one place to go to for local restaurant coupons. LINK It is called bitehunter and will search the web and combine coupons from various sites and make them all available in one place. Bitehunter has been in Beta for a few months in selected cities, but promises to roll out nationally this month, June. Excellent information, including menus with prices, reviews, links, and maps. Might be handy to look for local places even if no coupons are available. While checking the site, I found a restaurant called 5napkinburgers (ten ounce juicy burgers) that I hope comes to Texas soon.
