handy resource for locating food, shopping, etc.

yelp.com is pretty cool. it's similar to citysearch but much more community-oriented. people post reviews of restaurants, stores, theaters, spas, doctors, parks, etc. yelp plots it all out on a google map, so you can choose a category (for exa. ethiopian restaurant), enter your address, and it'll show everything nearby. you can also upload pictures of the different locations or see ones other people uploaded. this pc magazine article talks about it in more detail.

ideally you could do some of that with google local on its own... but sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. recently i couldn't remember the address for dixon's used furniture, so i searched for 'furniture' on google local and dixon's didn't come up.
