If you live in a sizable city like New York or San Francisco, you'd know Thrillist can be an indispensable tool in figuring out what's happening around your city. They've just released an iPad app to help you go out more.
It's a pretty simple app with a carousel that lets you flip between categories (such as New, Top, Near, etc and Eat, Drink, Shop, etc). The 'Near' is especially effective as it lays out all the stuff you want in a Google Maps map. Oh look, I just found another bar to bring me to my happy place. See you guys there! [iTunes]]
