Dating-Don'ts--Yelp-Reviews-For-5-Popular,-Online-Dating-Sites

Choosing a restaurant to eat at is an easy, fun task. Say there’s a new Chinese-Cuban-Indonesian fusion place that opened up on your block. Maybe you want to go there one night, because you enjoy clever fusion and you’re hungry, but you’ve never been and don’t want to waste your money on some greasy noodles. In this instance, Yelp does the legwork for you, but there’s no such great rating system for online dating sites. Like any sensible human trying out a service, you’d definitely want to read reviews before you go there, right?  Look no further — we’ve done the dirty work of reviewing and ranking some choice online dating sites in a way you’ll understand — by comparing them to food.

Plenty of people write Internet comments, especially if they found a dead fly in their guacamole. But some Yelp reviewers want payment for their “writing,” which they claim is integral to the site’s success. A California class action lawsuit filed by a group of reviewers says they are actually unpaid employees. Yelp is in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act, they claim, because the site “could not exist, nor make its enormous returns, without its domination and control over non-wage writers.” They even call the site a “slave ship.” Seriously?  Keep reading »

Going to jail is (usually) not funny. But writing a Yelp review about going to jail? That’s hilarious. Randomly, I came across a Yelp listing for NYC’s Central Booking, which is the holding pen for freshly arrested criminals and would-be criminals, which is also lovingly referred to as “the Tombs.” (It’s also heavily featured on every Law & Order franchise ever). People who are arrested are brought to Central Booking to be arraigned, and often minor criminals — violations of open container laws, or turnstyle jumpers — are mixed in with more hardened criminals. It’s not a very luxe place, as you might imagine.

But because New Yorkers have opinions on everything, past Central Booking occupants had a lot to say on the quality of their CB stay. Read on for their illustrious jailhouse reviews. Keep reading »

Yelp Helps Hungry Hipsters Find Places To Dine

I’m glad that Yelp has finally recognized the hipsters as a category of people that need to eat. Now you can find out if a restaurant or bar is known for its “hipster” ambience. But you’d better act quickly, as once an establishment earns a “hipster” rating, all the actual hipsters stop going there. Maybe Yelp should make a “used to be hipster” option. I went to Yelp and looked up all of my favorite restaurants. I was delighted to discover that I’ve been dining “hipster” and didn’t even know it. How ironic of me. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
