Palm-Sized Planners

By Anne Kenderdine

Take the Going Out Guide with you.

Today, we happily hand you our new and improved Going Out Guide mobile site. (To check it out, just go to from your mobile phone.) Search restaurants, bars and movies the same way you do on our online site -- by address, by Metro station, by city, neighborhood or zip or by just about any keyword you can dream up (say, cupcakes, wine bar or Bradley Cooper). If you're looking for ideas, you can browse options like currently playing movies, restaurant cuisines or editors' picks, to name a few. Best of all, it's really fast.

Because it's from us, you know you'll have a carefully edited selection of the city's best places with constantly updated expert reviews. Hanging out with friends at dinner and want ideas for a place to go to next? Use our mobile site to see what's nearby -- we'll give you the area's top establishments.

Want to hit up that hot lounge that just opened, but you forget exactly where it is? Come to us; 411 will never have its address listed, but we'll have that -- and our early thoughts on the place, too.

For you iPhone or iTouch users, you have two great choices. You can use our mobile site when you want movies, or you can stick with our app for bars and restaurants. Like the mobile site, it's always being refreshed with the latest reviews, but it also uses GPS to show the places closest to you right now.

Give it a whirl and let us know what you think. E-mail your feedback to

-- Anne
