A while ago Matthew suggested I should try this LivingSocial thing. It’s pretty legit.
What they do is that they send you a few emails a day with deals in your area (mine is the UES), and you can search their website if you are looking for something specific — say you are in Midtown East at 2pm and you are craving sushi: there’s a good chance to get an instant deal for that, or to find something else that will entice your appetite and please your wallet too.
Sometimes, rather than getting deals for a facial around the block, or coupons for free gallons of milk in BK (yes, I’ve had that happening), something like this can reach your inbox.
At that point, reminded of 1) how broke, and 2) how DEADLY on a deadline The ItAlien is (I’m handing in my MA Dissertation in — errr — nine days or so), I just want to unsubscribe and cry myself to sleep.
Also — if you decide to go, please shoot us an email to let us (me and M) know how a group of American tourists touring China looks like. Is it something like this, but like x1000?
Let us know.
