Wikipedia launches "WikiVoyage"

No article, but it's pretty simple: it's a Wiki that's primary purchase is to be an online travel guide. I'm excited to see how it turns out.

http://en.wikivoyage.org

I'm especially curious to see how it works for smaller destinations. In other words, there aren't travel guides out there for smaller towns and the like, so this could be a really cool way to find things to do in more remote areas.

Anyway, here's the current page on Kansas City to give you the flavor. So far, most of the articles I've read have been a little clunky, but those are the things that get refined over time.

Apparently that one was never partnered with the Wikimedia Foundation, and was kind of its own site (just running on the same software). This one is officially connected to the Wikipedia community. Most of the content is being brought over from the other site, but it'll be edited and updated on Wikivoyage from here on. I think the expectation is that this will be much more actively developed with the visibility that the Wikimedia Foundation brings to it.

They should monetize this... hopefully, that's the plan. Use this model to pay for Wikipedia and keeping that free.

I doubt it. Seems pretty contradictory to their philosophies.

The only problem with sites like tripadvisor is, people mostly tend to only post when they have a bad experience. Most people don't post to report the good or average experience.

Yep. This isn't a review site. It's a factual catalog of all the shit there is to do in the world.

Gentlemen's Clubs

If you are so inclined, Dallas has an overabundance of "Gentlemen's Clubs." Most of these places are nice and safe, and usually located off the Highway 35 and Northwest Highway area. Bring cash along or go to an ATM beforehand-- if using a credit card, you have to sign the tabs in triplicate with a photocopy of your ID. One can have a good time for $100-$200 at all the clubs, but if you want to spend more, the ladies will certainly help you do so. Here is a list of some of the clubs starting with the nicest ones.

The Lodge - Has a safari motif inside and actually has good food too.
The Men's Club - A nice club with pretty girls. The best night is Thursday.
Silver City - Good club.
Baby Doll's - An enormous club that sells more alcohol than any other bar in Texas. Has pretty decent priced drinks for a gentlemen's club.
Million Dollar Saloon - A lot of history behind this place. Really the first of its kind in Dallas or all of Texas.
The Clubhouse - Owned and operated by surviving members of Pantera; Frequented by all walks of life in Dallas; BYOB; Full frontal
