You’re drunk. You’re hungry. What’s open around Columbia right now?

This project was my HackMIT 2013 submission.

Many people have trouble using apps like Yelp and Seamless when they are intoxicated and looking for something to eat. Drunk Columbia solves these problems for Columbia University students by showing only the restaurants that are open and calculating the amount of time until they close, eliminating the need for interaction and thought.

I made this project to learn JavaScript and jQuery, so everything is done in-browser. The JavaScript uses a JSON file of restaurant data to generate the restaurant list when the page is loaded. Unfortunately, I couldn’t pull restaurant data from the Yelp API because a lot of their data for the restaurants isn’t machine-readable.
