Google Places API

Google Places
The Google Places Web Service is a service that returns information about a "place": an establishment, a geographic location, or prominent point of interest using an HTTP request. Place requests specify locations as latitude/longitude coordinates. Two basic Place requests are available: a Place Search request and a Place Details request. Generally, a Place Search request is used to return candidate matches, while a Place Details request returns more specific information about a Place.

dfwdines - DFW Restaurant Week Guide dfwdines - DFW Restaurant Week Guide
DFW Restaurant Week(s) is from 8/12 - 9/2/2013. Instead of a sad static list of restaurants that's not even sortable, we took the list of participating venues, put them on a map, and added a bunch of other cool features to find directions, what's nearby, ratings, etc. I have plenty more cool features in mind, more APIs to add, & hope to do it again next year! Works on mobile devices too!
