Before magazines, townsfolk kept up with current events by gossiping with the milkmaid or tickling secrets out of the town crier. Stay informed easily with today's Groupon: for $9, you get a one-year subscription to Austin Lifestyle Magazine (an $18 value).
Austin Lifestyle Magazine distributes six colorful issues every year that chronicle local trends in music and fashion, and curate experiences such as restaurants, spas, and special events. Recent articles have profiled female radio jockeys and police officers, advised on how to find the ideal winter wear for Austin’s climate, and featured a boutique hotel with ultramodern accouterments. The magazine’s blog supplements its printed content with interviews, profiles, and photos of crop circles in the shape of Texas while maintaining the voice of its paper-and-ink older sibling. The mag also boasts online access for those who prefer to read digitally or harbor a phobia of spilling coffee on printed publications.
