Attention Foursquare users. Would you like to be one of the first people in the UK to claim the 'Super Swarm' badge? This is the accolade received by anyone who's checked in somewhere at the same time as 249 other people. It's never happened in the UK. Not yet. So Londonist and @LDN have joined forces with social media and London explorer Chris Pearson in co-hosting an attempt to claim the badge at Jewel Bar, near Piccadilly, on 7 October. Foursquare haven't put us up to this or anything. We're genuinely doing it for a laugh and because we enjoy the app and meeting others who use it.
All you need to do is check in at Jewel Bar (4-6 Glasshouse Street) between 6pm and 9pm on Thursday 7 October. If you then present the special offer on the Foursquare app to the bar staff they'll give you a free glass of something very nice. We can also give you a Londonist badge, but it'll be of the more traditional aluminium variety.
Never used Foursquare? This is the perfect opportunity to give it a try. It's free to download and available for most smart phones. Be sure to befriend Londonist.
