Living in the L.A. area and being an avid reader of these boards, I now have a huge list of restaurants that I like or want to try, but there are so many that I often find myself forgetting most of them when a dining out opportunity presents itself.
Often, I have time to plan and then just pull up my computer document (copied/pasted from many posts here) and go from there.
But sometimes I'm out running around or with friends in a specific area of town that is somewhat unfamiliar, and end up missing a great restaurant opportunity. :)
I think I'm going to break down and buy a smartphone/PDA which would not only give me access to this site, but also allow me to upload my own saved information.
I'm in the process of creating a simple spreadsheet that tracks cuisine type, general area, address & phone and recommended menu items. I already have about 200 places (and it's growing all the time)!
Anybody else have some creative solutions to this uniquely chowhound problem??
