Looking for food in Eugene? Check this out!

Ivar Vong, one of the University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication superstars developed a cool service so those of you without iPhones can pretend that you have one, and/or that you’re cool.

Here’s how it works.

  1. Figure out what you want to eat, “Burrito, beer, sushi, Asians . . .” (in Eugene)
  2. Text that word to (541) 516-1633.
  3. Stare at your phone.

A magical program will send the address and phone number of one of  Yelp’s top 20 results to your phone.

Fun fact: “Women” returned “REI.” Not my first pick, but ok.

It still needs a little work but it’s cool in my book anyways.
