Jet lag. Insomnia. The stress of a high-powered business trip. Sometimes a traveler wants to step beyond the doors of a hotel room -- let alone the fitness room or hotel lobby bar. 2itch.com maps out restaurants, stores and essential services that are open all night.
What's hot: Type in your city, state or ZIP Code and get a running list of 24-hour options on the left-hand side. Click on the business name within the list and a Google map comes up with an address for your GPS plus a phone number. I prefer scanning the map with its visual cues -- fork and knife for food, Rx for pharmacy, little man for the police department, and a red cross for a medical center. There are even bail bondsmen listings for when you really need help late at night. Scroll all the way to the bottom and you'll find it has a mobile version (m.2itch.com) and that it's working on an iPhone app, city voting system and more.
