Google Now is very cool, and I like how it shows places you may be interested in nearby.

I'm wondering though, is there any way to tell it "No, I'm not interested in that place, please don't show it to me again"?

Note that I don't want to turn off the nearby places cards entirely, I want to see those, I just want to dismiss specific places and not see cards for them again.

Can I do this?

Note also, if there is a way, it doesn't necessarily need to be in Google Now, ... if there's even a way to go on the web and add the place to an ignore list or something or anything.

You can swipe them away, but I don't think that prevents them from coming back. – Al E. Nov 20 '12 at 17:44
No, it definitely does not. I keep swiping it away, and it keeps coming back. – eidylon Nov 20 '12 at 19:15

An individual place can be swiped away, but there is no way to tell Google Now to never show you a specific place again.
