Flavorpill – A Tool For Cultural Awareness

By Lakshmi: 

Who?  If you want timely access to information about events, art, books, music, and pop culture in several major cities.

What?  Flavorpill is a website that claims to be a network of culturally connected people and helps bring what’s going on in about ten cities to your fingertips.

How?  You can access Flavorpill at www.flavorpill.com and also sign up for regular updates from the site.

Why?  I am a big fan of the Time Out websites and magazines that bring you everything from sights to see, to art to take in and to food to devour in major cities around the world.  In some ways, Flavorpill attempts to serve a similar need.  But unlike its Time Out brethren, it narrows its focus to just cultural events and happenings.  Given our proximity to New York City and an ongoing search for things  to do that are off the beaten track, Flavorpill appears to be a true enabler.  I just discovered Scott’s Pizza Tour to try different pies in the city, Stephen Power’s (the Muralist’s) New York City Show, free classes from General Assembly to understand API’s, and much more.  From a usability standpoint, having a sampling of each area at a glance drew me in and tempted me to learn more.  I was a bit surprised to see Brooklyn listed separately from New York, but that just means we can do more targeted outings to Brooklyn too.

Today, Flavorpill curates cultural happenings in New York, Brooklyn, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Miami, Las Vegas, Seattle, Dallas and London.

If you have used Flavorpill to enable your cultural endeavors, we would love to hear from you.
