Six New Foursquare City Badges, from Vegas to Jamaica

June 29, 2012 at 2:07 PM | by | ()

Yet more international city badges have just dropped, in time for your summer travels! Location-based social network Foursquare is deep into the city badge awarding, and the last week has seen six new ones, for your checking-in pleasure.

These newest city badges go to Kingston, Jamaica; Trois-Rivières, Quebec; Las Vegas, NV, USA; Portland, OR, USA; Riga, Latvia; and Ghent, Belgium.

How to get the badges: First, follow 4sqCities, and just to be safe, it wouldn't hurt to also follow the individual city lists: Kingston (list); Trois-Rivieres (list); Las Vegas (list); Portland (list); Riga (list); and Ghent (list). Then travel to the cities and clickety-click to check-in to the places on the recommended lists. Five places earns the badge.

SPOILER ALERT! Here's the unlock text for each of the newest badges:

Kingston: Jah-Mek-Yah
From the dred-donning rastafarians and pirates of Port Royal to the many Pantomimes you’ve attended and your perfect Patois, you know this isle front to back! So pack up the jerk chicken, crank up the Bob Marley, and head for the beach – yu a come wit wi?

Trois-Rivières: Cité de Laviolette
Where might one find a Grand Prix, poetry, and round-the-clock poutine? Only in Trois-Rivières, of course. Saunter along the Saint-Laurent at the Harbourfront, then make for La Rue des Forges with some friends. C’est malade!

Las Vegas: What Happens in Vegas
Oh, Vegas. Home to endless pool parties, bedazzled heels, and the last remaining Hummer limos. Now pop some bottles, scoop up a fallen VIP pass from the floor of Caesars Palace, and... OMG, how did that tiger get into the closet?!

Portland: Bridgetown
Look at you with your mustache, biking to work and sipping on Stumptown. You’ve probably got a well-developed palette for microbrews and a friend who’s a cheesemonger, too, right? Now go on, eat that maple bacon bar. We won’t judge.

Riga: Gem of the Baltics
Sveiki Riga! You truly are in The Capital of the North with its swingin’ nightclubs, beautiful streets and historic architecture. From the rye bread at Lido to the partying at Piens, what’s not to love? After all, that black balsam really warms the heart.

Ghent: City of Three Towers
Biking over cobblestones and passing Medieval castles on your morning commute? Totally normal. You flock to the Graslei and Korenlei when the weather is nice, and always snag fries from the frituur late at night. Oh, and you Love Techno, right? Vree wijs!
