Website Of The Day: Picnic Mob


If you hail from Boston, New York City, Washington DC, Chicago or the San Francisco Bay Area and like picnics you're in luck. Just answer a series of questions from Picnic Mob and the site's supercomputer will calculate where you should be opening your picnic basket. First they quiz you on 30 funny (but insightful) questions, then they combine maps of parks near you and and the answers locals gave and put them in a computer program that calculates where you should go hang out to meet like minded souls.

Questions include: If you had a machine that could peer into the past, what would you look for first? The choices being "Tyrannasaurus Rex," "Jesus," "Socrates," "Pizarro conquering the Inca Empire," or "Jimi Hendrix." Once you finish your questions you give them your e-mail and they send you the results of parks where "people like you" might hang. You then plan a picnic to that place on Sunday at noon and join the picnic mob. Follow YumSugar's picnic tips and you'll be everyone's favorite parkgoer.
