Eats 2010

In November I went to the Loft Bar and Bistro for the first time. It has been open in San Jose for as long as I can remember, but this is the first time I went there. I have been meaning to go there for years. The problem is something that happens all the time. Kate and I have a list of restaurants we usually go to. It is easier to go to a place we know. I want to not be in that rut.

I decided to figure out how many places I ate at for the first time in 2010. I used flickr and foursquare to figure out where I ate this year. I know there must be a few places missing. I think the list is pretty interesting. This gives me a pretty good reason to go back to using Foursquare.

Quickly I figured out I needed to break the list up into two parts, Travel Eats and Local Eats.
