We believe that in this day and age, people should know where to get good haircuts, sharp dry cleaning, and ridiculously good burritos in their own neighborhoods - or somebody else's, for that matter. Admittedly, we had the burrito thing worked out - but as we sat around one night, the painful sight of career-crushing dry cleaning jobs and long hours of waiting tables prompted some serious inner reflection.
The thing is, the answers to our questions were already out there - sites reviewing everything from local restaurants to hotels litter the internet. But no one brought it all together in one place and made it simple to use. Our answer? Localtom - a local search site with objective reviews pulled from all over the internet without pretext - just useful information.
