D.C. Foursquare Hot Spots And Their Mayors

by MADELEINE STARKEY · July 14, 2010

Foursquare is the next step on the path to total social media domination.  On foursquare, you and your friends "check in" to where ever you are as a way to add location context to your burgeoning social media identity.  We found a list on WeLoveDC of D.C. trends on this whole foursquare thing.

WeLoveDC actually got the info from Nick Barron at the Examiner, who figured out which fifteen D.C. locations were most frequented as of late.  Here's the list:

1.  Nationals Park – 5,024 check-ins 2.  JR’s Bar & Grill – 3,059 check-ins 3.  The White House – 2,940 check-ins 4.  Verizon Center – 2,614 check-ins 5.  Whole Foods (P St NW) – 2,505 check-ins 6.  Washington Monument – 2,475 check-ins 7.  Nellie’s Sports Bar – 2,420 check-ins 8.  U.S. Capitol – 2,320 check-ins 9.  Lincoln Memorial – 2,125 check-ins 10.  9:30 Club – 2,053 check-ins 11.  Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History – 1,903 check-ins 12.  The National Mall – 1,821 check-ins 13.  Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum – 1,744 check-ins 14.  Tysons Corner Center – 1,706 check-ins 15.  Smithsonian National Museum of American History – 1,701 check-ins

We wonder who is responsible for all these check ins?  If you check in to a location the most out of anyone over the course of 60 days, you become to mayor of that location.  One way to find out is to see who the Mayors are of these spots.  Here are the top five D.C. foursquare mayors:
