A new TV series about 15 century crime family has just started screening. For their launch promotion they partnered “with foursquare  to release a new Borgias badge

“Follow Showtime. Hit up the old haunt, feast in a dining hall or carouse at a tavern. To earn the Borgias badge you must act the part.”

“On Foursquare Day, April 16, if you check into Foursquare you could soon be the owner of this badge, but foursquare hasn’t revealed exactly what it will take to earn it”
