Have you heard of Groupon yet? What a fun new company. Everyday, they showcase a deal on a service, restaurant, etc. for your city (along with many others). If you are interested, you can buy it at the reduced price. I've purchased a few for my city and also follow the cities we frequent regularly on vacations or long weekends. I've been VERY impressed with the discounts and haven't had any problems using the coupons. The variety has been fun too - everything from a wine tasting class to yoga and pilates!
Check to see if they have your city and give it a try!
