Of all the things available for subscription, magazines have remained the favorite ever since the postmaster general banned beehive-of-the-month clubs. Stay on top of the latest buzz with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get a one-year subscription to Cincinnati Magazine (a $14.95 value).
Cincinnati Magazine’s writers send humor, reviews, essays, and in-depth reports through an editorial blender to concoct an engaging and informative comprehensive city guide. Readers sift through the magazine's Top 5 lists to plot out an extraordinary week of events or peruse historical accounts detailing such topics as Cincinnati’s mid-20th century drag-racing scene and the horse-and-buggy tossing competitions of the early 19th century. Thoughtful restaurant reviews profile some of the city’s finest dining, and the lifestyle section offers up juicy morsels of advice for everyday living. A yearlong subscription grants access to the annual “Best Of” edition, in which writers name the city's best restaurants, salons, and bars, scribing innumerable reasons why Cincinnati is the number-one destination for vacationing Martians. New customers should allow six-to-eight weeks for delivery of their first issue, while existing customers will have their existing subscriptions extended for one year.
