This is a personal project of mine that I wanted to share with the DC community. Before I tell about, I'll share why I created it. I was on a weekend getaway in a new city that I had never been to before. Walking around the city I knew that friends had visited but didn't know where they had gone or restaurants they liked and would recommend. It would have been nice to know what my friends would recommend (what I consider a trusted source recommendation). This is why I created Plarker. Basically I would have a single map made up of my places and the places of the users that I am following.
