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 $12, you get a 12-month subscription to Avenue Calgary magazine (a $26.24 value).
Avenue Calgary’s monthly issues spotlight the city’s cultural luminaries and inspire citizens to explore thriving neighbourhood enclaves. The most recent feature educates palates about cold-weather wines and lures couples away from Law & Order marathons and into romantic Valentines Day eateries. Travel logs celebrate Skoki Valley’s natural splendour, and interviews illuminate colourful local entrepreneurs such an accomplished hot air balloon captain. Subscribers are also privy to the annual Shopping Guide and Dining Guide, which keep readers abreast of the city’s rising entrepreneurs, and conveniently fold into a megaphone for announcing findings to neighbours.
