Whaa? Hotlist? Even BETTER?

When you log onto Hotlist for the ducentillionth time today (what? it’s a real number, look it up on Wikipedia), you may notice a few of these changes:

  • A brief tutorial for new users.
  • Citysearch ratings on Venue pages.
  • Foursquare tips on Venue pages - ranked by most popular!
  • Oh yeah, and our whole site is way FASTER. Seriously. Like, way FASTER.

Thank you to all our fans and users who send us comments and suggestions on the features they’d like to see added. Please, keep ‘em coming! We’re constantly tweaking and updating Hotlist to give you the information and tools to help you decide what to do.

How you celebrate your favorite Hotlist update is up to you. We suggest fireworks, if legal in your locale. Or you can take a page out of our ebook and gorge yourself on all-you-can-eat Korean BBQ.

The flame gave proof, through the night, that our flag was still there

Earlier this month, we hoisted the majestic Hotlist Flag high above our downtown office. She has been battered by torrential rains, hurricane-force arctic winds, and the vicious elements of an unrelenting and unforgiving New York City winter (I may be exaggerating a little, but it sure ain’t spring). However, she has persevered, waving exuberantly back at us and lifting our spirits every morning.

Pictured: The Hotlist Flag, in all her glory!

With the flu bug going around the office, the Hotlist Flag may end up the last one standing. Or hanging. Or whatever.

Happy Birthday, Haydn!

Haydn Vestal had the extreme pleasure of celebrating the first Hotlist birthday of 2012. The team wanted to get the native Texan tickets to the Broadway musical “Annie Get Your Gun,” but he said our angelic serenade of “Happy Birthday” already filled his heart to the brim with the joy of music.

Clearly, if there’s one thing that excites Haydn more than back-end software development, it’s chocolate cake. The senior software developer wouldn’t reveal his birthday wish, but I think we all know it’s for Gianni to stick to the weekly release schedule.
