If you're one for requesting friends' recommendations before visiting restaurants, bars, parks, sights and the like, you can now get this advice from Google Hotpot.

Google Hotpot logs you in automatically with your Google account and asks for your ratings on venues in your neighborhood. Mark places with a "Hated it," a "Best ever" or anything in between, and help your friends and future self make plans on the town. Google Maps will bring up your contacts' Google Hotpot evaluations on their rated locations as well if you search them.
