Foursquare seems to be one of the latest smart-phone crazes right now, and the folks at Kona Grill at NorthPark Center are hopping on the bandwagon.

For those not familiar with Foursquare, it’s actually pretty cool. The cell-phone app connects you with people in your neighborhood, and everyone offers tips on local restaurants or businesses. You can earn points and unlock “badges” for discovering new places, and every place has a “mayor”, the person who checks in there the most.

Kona Grill is having a Foursquare Swarm Party 7-9 p.m. Wednesday, offering a complimentary Stinger Roll to mayors. The goal of this get-together? To earn the Swarm Badge – that’s when 50 or more people all check in at the same place. It’s like a virtual flashmob.
