not sure what the restaurant looks like?

Google maps now has street level view. It is literally like walking on the street, and pretty unbelievable. Go to Google maps, and search Times Square. Zoom in. Click on the little orange guy in the left. You're suddenly walking down the street in New York. And, if you're not sure about the facade of your destination restaurant reservation, now you'll know.

Dammit, I thought your post was about streetview coming to Canada (Calgary specifically, hopefully). People has supposedly spotted google vans (they have a ton of cameras attached) here but apparently there are privacy matters to be worked out.

hehe sorry John! I wish it was in Calgary. Wow, the number of times I've been lost in this city (where I'm from...) far out weighs most any other city - including Venice (but I guess it isn't that large).

But handy for some travels nonetheless!
