    How about a page for each restaurant with details, photos, video, five-star ratings, comments, an interactive map . . . ?

    And maybe the ability to search restaurants by town, cuisine, rating, features, keywords . . . ?

    Maybe articles and reviews for restaurants . . . ?

    Maybe a map with all restaurants, filter by town, cuisine, etc. . . . click on a map pin to see the restaurant, then click to go to that restaurant's page . . . ?

    Book a restaurant online . . . ?

    What about current dining specials . . . ?

    I think a locked thread with restaurants able to post links to their menus/specials/own pages would be great.

    Local artists

    Perhaps a forum for local artists to display their work.

    Thanks for a useful and visually appealing website. I look forward to the new site.

    You set another record in May 2010 with over 14 million page views on SoWal.com. Nearly forty percent of the time spent on the site is by folks in our major drive-in markets in southeastern states. We noticed an increase in traffic from New York City, Washington DC, Orlando and Houston - locations served by Southwest Airlines flying to the new airport.

    We are excited to be in the final stages of a major redesign of SoWal.com. Our new site has been a long time coming. While we will launch with lots of new features and content, there will be much more added in coming weeks and months. If you've noticed some slack in new photos or other content being posted lately it's because we've been a little busy behind the scenes.

    We thank each and every member for help and devotion in building our site, and our community. Please let us know how we can make it better. We will also be introducing new staff and moderators, whose love for our home and community is greatly appreciated and admired.

    For business owners who have helped support us by advertising we want to thank you sincerely. We will be actively seeking new advertisers and have hired two new account executives who you will learn more about in a few days. If you'd like to learn more please contact us.

    A section that would allow art reviews about local artists and allow local commercial galleries AND artist's studio galleries to tell what's new along with current or upcoming exhibits.
