Lunch Location Randomizer

I was noodling around yesterday, making some small updates to Hurm.com, and ended up creating a "Lunch Location Randomizer."

Many people I know, including myself, stumble and hedge when it comes to deciding where to have lunch next — or any going out to eat meal, actually. If you live in Austin, TX and can�t figure out where to eat, you can use the Lunch Location Randomizer to randomly pull a single, local eatery from a list of about 80.

I won't lie to you, this tool is pretty much for me and my friends, but please feel free to use it as often as you wish. There's certainly a large number of eatery's on that list that can apply to most locations throughout North America.

Simply load or refresh this page here" to view our recommendation for your next meal.

Great selection, Bastion! The various Alamo drafthouse's are both restaurant AND full-size movie theater! Imagine, eating your meal, sipping your brewski, and watching the hottest cimenatic release in the theaters. Brilliant!

Gee... what does this remind me of? Didn't someone else in another place you worked think of this? Hmmm... I can't quite recall. Something about a dog, I think? What was it?

"Gee... what does this remind me of?"

It is, of course, similar to the Guinnster lunch picker that Tom made. ;P But the two big differences here are (1) Tom's was flash and mine is PHP, and (2) Tom's is currently unavailable and this one I can update in seconds.
