A Fantastic Start To Gowalla 4.0

September 22, 2011 Leave a comment

The first publicly available Gowalla 4.0 Special Event Postcard and Guide is one created for the 2011 Fantastic Fest held in Austin, Texas.

It is supported by a custom stamp to mark this momentous event and location.

“Fantastic Fest is the largest genre film festival in the U.S., specializing in horror, fantasy, sci-fi, action and just plain fantastic movies from all around the world.  In years past we have presented the world premieres of THERE WILL BE BLOOD, APOCALYPTO, CITY OF EMBER, ZOMBIELAND, and GENTLEMEN BRONCOS, while our guest roster has included such talent as Mel Gibson, Bill Murray, Dolph Lundgren, Jemaine Clement, Paul Rudd, Bill Pullman, Paul Thomas Anderson, Kevin Smith, Jon Favreau, George Romero, Darren Aronofsky and Mike Judge. We also feature world, national and regional premieres of new, up-and-coming genre films.”

You can also pick up the special stamps for the South Lamar location of the Alamo Drafthouse as well as the featured stamp for The Highball.

Gowalla had it’s 20 millionth Check-In today. Fred Bull checked in to D’Coque in Luxembourg City.

The 15 millionth Check-In was on August 20th so it’s been 67 days, meaning roughly 75,000 Check-Ins a day for the last 2 months.

Gowalla had it’s 15 millionth Check-In around 7 hours ago.

Prize goes to to user “DIRTY IN THE CLUB” at, not suprisingly, PB Shore Club in San Diego.

Congrats to all:

Also, it should be noted that DIRTY IN THE CLUB is my new favorite users with 40 Check-Ins almost all at bars, with the last 2 being Planned Parenthood followed immediatly by a slice of pizza.

1.5 Million Spots!

Unfortunatly Gowalla has taken away access to a lot of the information on Spots (like who created it and when) so I’m not exactly sure when the 1,500,000 Spot went up, but it was pretty recent.

The Whiterow Farm Shop in Beckington is the winner of this coveted spot.
