FAQs

  • What's the deal here? I can just text you guys and ask for recommendations at any time? 

    • Yep! Simple as that. We are actually committed to providing people with recommendations for any occasion through a simple text, unlimited, and at any time. Just text us with the details and a member of Team Locasaur will follow up!

  • What the heck? 

    • The truth is, we LOVE exploring and supporting local businesses, and we know that despite (or maybe because of) the GLUT of discovery tools it can still be difficult to find the PERFECT spot for any occasion. Dinner with your boss? Drinks with a girlfriend? Drinks with an EX-girlfriend? A bookstore for your bibliophile father and a barber for your brother to get a fresh cut? We have recs for all of them and more! We want to cut through all the noise and deliver recs that we personally standby, and send people to the local spots we know are great. So no matter how specific or detailed your request, let us know! We’ve got a spot for you :)

  • Um...Ok, where do your recommendations come from?

    • We have a constantly-improving algorithm using the latest machine learning and artificial intelli- nah just kidding! All our recs come from decidedly-human sources, just like our service. We’ve explored hundreds (literally, I can show you the spreadsheet) of local spots around the city. Bars and Restaurants for sure, but also bookstores, event venues, barbers, book stores, bakeries, and pretty much everything else. Many I’ve scoped out myself, a few come from other trusted members of #TeamLocasaur, and we’re always looking for new spots! On some level, you just can’t fake this discovery stuff. There’s a great recommendation for every occasion, no matter how nuanced, and the human touch is required.  

  • Wait, that's pretty cool! How soon do you respond?

    • During the day/evening you can expect a conversation more or less right away! If it’s 3am and you’re asking me for a drunken pizza rec, I might not respond in time (but let me fill you in, it’s gotta be Artichoke if you’re downtown, Koronet if you’re uptown). We do track preferences for each subscriber, however, so if speed of response is your highest priority you can let us know and we’ll make a note of it on your account.

  • What if I don’t find this worth it?

    • No hard feelings! You can cancel your subscription anytime without penalty, just don't stop suppporting to local businesses! 

  • Do standard messaging rates apply?

    • Yes!

  • Can I pay in Bitcoin?

    • No!
