Our second greenest holiday (after Earth Day, of course) is creeping ever-closer, and isn’t it just the luck of the Irish that we’ve compiled these guides for tackling St. Patrick’s day with aplomb? We’ve enlisted our expert scouts from Atlanta to L.A. to
compile the cream-of-the-crop St. Patrick’s day suggestions in your city, from the corny to the corned beef. The best part? There are plenty of big pictures in there for those who are feeling a little too “spirited” for features by the time March 17th rolls around. Check out the rest of our guides on our homepage and click on the link for your city for a St. Paddy’s day guide! Atlanta, Austin, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Portland, San Francisco, Seattle.
Have you heard the big news? Some of our beloved Citysearch scouts are starring in their own Youtube shows. They’re exploring their cities mouth first to find the best in just about everything food related. But who are these guys and why should you trust them to tell you where to eat? Well, they’re major movers and shakers with the most discerning taste buds in town. Below, you’ll find a little appetizer. Tune in to the Hungry Channel this Friday to get to know even more.
Let’s start with Hungry in Los Angeles Host Adrianna Adarme.
If you had a mission statement, what would it be? “The fat is the meat, and the meat is the vegetable.”
Finally we head Southwest to meet Austin’s pride and joy Tolly Moseley whose love of her city , as expressed through her culture blog, AustinEavesdropper could probably convince you to relocate in under an hour.
Best Meal You’ve ever had: One time, my husband and I had a big certificate to Uchiko (Chef Paul Qui’s restaurant), and, feeling rich … my husband snapped the menu shut, and simply told the waiter, “Dazzle us.” (PS he never talks like this). We ended up spending the equivalent of our monthly mortgage that night on top of the gift certificate, but it was worth it! Tasting after tasting of beautifully-composed, non-traditional sushi rolls, like my favorite, the Tiger Cry: Cured wagyu beef, rice paper, red pepper, charred green onion. It’s not for purists, but it’s a tasty little bite.
If you had a mission statement, what would it be? Be a better listener.

YouTube, perhaps the greatest entertainment disruptor the Internetz has born thus far, has been busy handing out millions in grants to Hollywood production companies in order to create premium content and prove their platform is more than just cute cat videos and babies biting fingers for a cheap thrill. Basically, they want to be Cable TV of the future and they’re funding new networks that they hope will become the next AMCs, HBOs, ESPNs and CNNs. The money is used by the incipient networks to produce content/shows on their new channels. We’re thrilled to announce that Citysearch will have its own show on one of these channels called Hungry (on one of these new networks, called Electus) starting this Summer! You can read all about it right over this way. While still in the planning stages, our show will bring you the best, newest, most interesting restaurants and cafes in 10 of our major markets, brought to you by our expert local scouts. Watch this blog for more details as they surface. Go subscribe to Hungry in the meantime, as all their programs promise to be full of awesomesauce.
Citysearch is taking San Francisco by storm and we’ve gathered just the group of local tastemakers and foodies to help us do it! Our new crew got familiar recently over food and cocktails at Zare at The Fly Trap. We couldn’t be happier to have this amazing collection of in-the-know folks about town. From right to left, Victoria McGinley of VMac + Cheese, Jeanne Chan of Shop Sweet Things, Mika Takeuchi of Food Fashionista and Susie Wyshak of Epicuring.
