Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Want to find a great restaurant, babysitter or doctor? You usually ask a friend for a recommendation. But a new website created by a Las Vegas man allows us to make our recommendations online, share them online, and see who they choose. It's called whoichoose.com
It's a startup company based here in Las Vegas. The brainchild of David Winchell. "We're all doing it every day already. This is just a way to make the information accessible so we can expand the presence of good ideas from other people we trust."
As the Good Morning Las Vegas team found out, it's easy to use. In a few clicks, you can log on and tell people who you choose from restaraunts to veterinarians. Casey Smith chooses Sahara Pines Animal Hospital. "The vet there is fantastic She understands our dogs like nobody's business."
Across the newsroom, Jessica Janner is letting the world wide web know who she chooses too.
"I choose Phat Franks. Because its got the best breakfast burritos in town. And I'm all about food."
Aren't we all. David Winchell says reaction to his free site has been great and it's very different from "liking" someplace on Facebook. "We like lots of things. But we only choose and recommend certain ones."
Mike Tsolinas says, "I choose Jamm's restaurant. Love those people. Great breakfast. Been going there for years. I suggest you go there too."
We have a new reporter on Good Morning Las Vegas and Denise wants to know where she should go for great food. And every reporter knows, you always ask the photographers. Photojournalist Vince Autry says he chooses The Tap House. "The Tap House because of ther homemade sausage they make every week."
The site is free for users and businesses. But if you're a business that wants a larger presence on the website, you can pay for that. But again, you can recommend any business even if they haven't paid a penny.
