Sorry, Tom: Checking out Joliet With Foursquare 4 U

Maybe Tom Giarrante's the mayor of Joliet, but he's not the mayor of his own barbershop.

Running a town the size of must be very time-consuming.

The mayor has to go to all those meetings, and there are so many decisions to make.

And maybe that's why Mayor Tom Giarrante's not even the mayor of his own barbershop. Not on Foursquare anyway.

You heard right — Mayor Giarrante is not the mayor of Giarrantes Barber Shop. That honor belongs to none other than Cam H. of Chicago, who checked in from the barbershop three times in the last 60 days.

Now, we made an effort to reach out to Cam H. We sent a friend request and everything. But just like with not so long ago, it looks like we got blown off.

Oh well. We were really hoping to be Foursquare friends with Cam H. But since that's apparently not going to happen, let's take a closer look at the mayor of Mayor Giarrante's barbershop.

According to his Foursquare page, Cam H. is a fan of the Travel Channel program No Reservations, and he had this to say about the McDonald's on Cass Street:

"One of the worst service ever!!!!!!!!!!!!"

That's a lot of exclamation points.

At any rate, congratulations to you, Cam H., on your successful mayoral bid. And to everyone else, check back next week to see who else is a mayor somewhere in Joliet. Maybe we'll even see who's the mayor of City Hall.

This story makes no sense at all. What was its purpose?

What do you mean, it makes no sense? Didn't you read it?
Tony June 11, 2012 at 06:37 PM
Sounds like a cheap shot at the Mayor to me, I read it three times and it don't make sense to me.

Hi Tony, It's not a shot at the mayor, cheap or otherwise. We're just taking a look at the Foursquare mayors of different places in Joliet. There will be another one next week.
