The Onion launching local city guides

Believe it or not, the humor site The Onion is getting into the local game with Decider, a local city guide that will take on the likes of CitySearch, Yelp and MetroMix. Decider is starting in Chicago (coincidentally just like Huffington Post) with restaurant and music reviews, events and feature stories. The design is clean and straightforward, and the content looks a little thin to start. But TechCrunch points out, “Decider isn’t serving as a standalone business, and will do just fine as an extension to The Onion’s newspaper.”

Adds Jesse in comments: “I’d say it’s more a matter of The AV Club, The Onion’s non-fiction editorial publication, getting into the game. They have really superb content overall, and they’re in a lot of cities.”
