Last fall, during a visit to Chicago, we were walking through the River North area with our heads down, looking more at our phone than at the sidewalk in front of us. The reason was all the excellent tips and deals showing up on Foursquare, and when we walked near The James Hotel, their lobby bar deal for two cocktails for the price of one was more than enough to pull us in.

Chicago's James was one of the first hotels to embrace Foursquare, and they continue to do an excellent job with it, as evidenced by their most recent promotion. Check in and "check in" at the hotel, and you're in for this deal:

“Check-in for Charity” Show your Foursquare check-in to the front desk assistant & get 50% off a room upgrade! We'll donate 50% of the upgrade charge to our local not-for-profit partner of the season!

The buy-one-get-one-free drink promotion is still very much in effect at The James' Lobby Bar and J Bar too, so there's always some Foursquare action, even for non-guests.
