Tour-goers also get a detailed list of sales going on throughout the city, allowing them to continue their own bargain hunts after the tour is over.

Elegant Tightwad Tasting Excursions

When it came time to name her business, Pamela Parisi looked to her own nickname: The Elegant Tightwad. She earned the moniker during 20 years spent in the fashion industry as a clothing designer, manufacturer, and mannequin guidance counselor. Parisi developed a reputation for her conflicting loves for designer clothes and fiscal responsibility. Always a problem solver, she quickly learned to marry her two passions by developing extensive knowledge of designer showrooms and the wholesale prices they charge. Today, she uses her nose for bargains to guide tour groups to the best deals on designer clothes and accessories. Her cash-saving tours have even garnered the attention of CNN and Elle magazine. In addition to her Garment District Diva tours, Parisi has also extended her expertise into the world of food. Her tasting excursions explore some of the most tempting eats in Hell's Kitchen, from Italian and Greek specialties to sweet treats from bakeries and ice cream shops.

    “ We attended the international food tour in Hell's Kitchen, which was great, amazing and very informative. Angela our tour guide, gave us history of the area, took us to 7 eateries, which was great! I wish i took the dessert tour with it but frankly, with all the food we ate I believe I made the right decision to schedule the dessert tour for later. I will definitely book again and definitely will alert my friends and co-workers on attending this great adventure venue we attended. Great job to everyone! ”
