How To: Unlock the Hoxton Hero foursquare Badge


This week foursquare launched another United Kingdom-only badge, continuing a month of heavy focus on the UK and London, in particular. 

To unlock the new Hoxton Hero badge, all you have to do is check-in to venues in London's Hoxton and East London areas. You will then earn your shiny new badge and see the following message:
From Shoreditch to Shadwell, Bethnal Green to Bow – congrats! You’ve conquered London’s east. Now then, don’t you have a coffee tasting to get to? Fix up, look sharp!
This new badge follows a slew of UK-centered foursquare efforts including the Love My Local, High Tea and Hope for Homeless badges

How To: Unlock the foursquare Fashion Week 2012 Badge


Hot off releasing a badge for the US Open, foursquare is commemorating another highly anticipated annual event- Fashion Week.

To earn the Fashion Week 2012 badge, you have to check in to a fashion event or boutique in either New York, London, Tokyo, Milan, Paris, Los Angeles or Moscow during that city's fashion week. Do this and you will receive your new fashionable badge and see the following message:
Blunt bobs, Twiggy lashes, parachute pants and platform sneakers – you practically predict the pages of the September issues, be it the infamous Armadillo heels from 2010, or next season’s fanny packs (they’re sooo coming back...). Fierce.

Every four years, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) celebrates the world's best athletes. With its new foursquare partnership, the IOC is now looking to celebrate the athletic feats of you and I by rewarding us with a new badge for working out this summer.

To unlock the new badge, all you have to do is follow the IOC on foursquare and then check-in to an athletic-type venue (gym, track, trail, yoga studio, etc) between now and June 25th. You will then earn your badge and see the following message:
In addition to staying healthy and active, you've just unlocked the Olympic Day badge! Clearly you're well on your way to achieving your fitness goals, now go reward yourself with a fresh fruit smoothie. For a chance to win a trip to the London 2012 Summer Olympics, go to http://hub.olympic.org/olympicday2012 Sport belongs to everyone!

As the message suggests, everyone that unlocks the Olympic Day badge is eligible to win a trip to the 2012 Olympics later this Summer in London.

Good Luck!
