Blindfold Destinations

When no one will make a decision on where to go: Add a little fun & mystery with the Blindfold Destinations app! I used this with my son and nephew (co-developer of the app) last week to choose a place to eat dinner. We had amazing food at a restaurant we would 
never have found or tried on our own! Answer a couple of questions & let the app direct you to an undisclosed location. The app ties into Yelp reviews to choose a location in your area. It works anywhere Yelp has access to.
