The Onion's Decider

Here's an unexpected move: The Onion has launched a CitySearch/Yelp competitor called Decider. It's only available for Chicago right now. I've heard rumors that several of the local papers (now in 10 cities: NYC, Chicago, LA, SF, DC, Minneapolis, Madison, Milwaukee, Denver, Austin) are performing poorly and some might be shut down.

wow! i hope this thing gets going. and starting in chicago (where there is a great bar on every block) is a good choice. yelp is super useful but the sense of humor is just a little...off. reading it, i always feel like i'm in a corporate teambuilding exercise littered with pop culture references to lighten our spirit

They'd better not discontinue the Minneapolis edition!

That's one whose page count I've heard has been plummeting.

so they probably won't be starting a seattle site anytime soon. [sadface]

Sad. I don't know what I'd do without my weekly Onion. :(
