Foursquare Releases A Philadelphia Badge, The “Phanatic”

If ever there was a reason to join Foursquare if you haven’t already, this is it: there’s a brand new Phanatic Badge. No, sadly, not that Phanatic. Despite being named for our favorite furry mascot, the badge is actually meant to connote being a huge fan of Philly, rather than a symbol of the actual Phillies team. How do you earn it? Check in to any 5 of the 67 spots on this list to unlock it. The Phanatic Badge, a cracked liberty bell, is one of Foursquare Cities’ fun new city badges, which also include Ich bin ein Berliner Badge for Berlin and the Beantown Badge for Boston.
