russ, my website doesn't work like most dining guides on the net. Our client is the restaurant operators the signs up and pays to be on the network. In 2007, the guide was free to the entire USA as part of our pilot program and we managed to get nearly 700 restaurants signed up. In 2008, our focus is to develop certain locations across the USA. There is a video on my profile page of how our service works. You can email me at if you have any further questions.
