A Wheel of Lunch That Works

I've always got a coffee/lunch/dinner date with someone and absolutely no preference as to where we meet. I need a Random Number Generator for food. Perhaps it could pull from the Yelp API. In a perfect world you can narrow your search by proximity to an address, keywords (lunch, Chinese), and open hours. Dine-O-Matic, Wheel of Lunch, and A Place Between Us all exist, but suck, because they appear to draw from the same ...more »

"Relative Time" application

When can we meet

Ever try to get a bunch of people together for a meeting, event, wine tasting, etc where you have multiple date choices, and some key people who you want to attend? It's a real pain trying to do this through email. There is a need for a website where you can go, put in a bunch of email addresses, choose the key people, and a few dates, and have the software pick the date with the best match for the chosen criteria. ...more »
