Louisville restaurant info + iPhone app + Michelle Jones = Kickstarter project of awesomeness

“We’re hungry and we have questions.”

Michelle Jones, publisher of Consuming Louisville, a friend of this blog and a gift to the city of Louisville, is in the process of developing an iPhone app called Menu and Hours. This app will provide basic information to users about Louisville restaurants: location, hours, menus and contact information. No flash, no PDFs, no annoying Muzak — just the basics of what you need to know to find some good dinner.

Michelle needs some help getting this program off the ground, so she has turned to Kickstarter to raise $6,000 to pay for a programmer and graphic designer to get the app created. If this isn’t a project worth backing, I don’t know what is. Michelle has done a lot for the city of Louisville through her blog, her involvement in the Louisville Digital Association and her creation of Let Them Tweet Cake. On a personal note, Michelle has been a great friend and helped me dive into the Louisville blog scene when I moved back to town.

Why don’t we give back to someone who truly loves this city and the people in it?

As it is with other Kickstarter projects, there are different giving levels and gifts that come with each pledge to Menu and Hours, and no money comes out of your account if Michelle’s $6,000 goal is not met. Menu and Hours’ Kickstarter page addresses issues you might want to know about before donating, such as Android availability and restaurant participation.

If you want to make Menu and Hours a reality, click here to visit the Kickstarter page. You have 25 days, readers. Let’s do this.
