Become learned in the chic ways of the Southern hunter-gatherer with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a one-year subscription to Garden & Gun magazine (a $19.97 value).
The award-winning Garden & Gun is a sleek bi-monthly magazine that celebrates the magic and culture of Southern living, packing each page with depictions of its thriving culture for denizens and dilettantes alike. Each issue is a sweet pie of topics—ranging from cuisine and architecture to the sporting and gardening life—and reflects the beauty of Southern people and their passions with a witty style that never stoops to mockery. The regular feature “Talk of the South” acts as a guide to arts, entertainment, and delicious experiences, and the “Good Hunting” column provides a gun-toter's guide to the latest austral arrivals. Roy Blount Jr.’s “End of the Line” spins tall tales and knee-slapping whimsical anecdotes about life in the South, and the “Good Dog” column—a canine connoisseur's document of a dog’s life—satisfies hankerings for the heart-warming.
With the insider’s knowledge gleaned from a year of Garden & Gun, even the most northerly Yankee could infiltrate the South without the hassle of disguising themselves as okra or chugging a gallon of molasses to disguise their accent.
The Magazine Association of the Southeast awarded Garden & Gun a Grand Gamma Award and gold ratings in four other categories in 2010. The American Society of Magazine Editors nominated Garden & Gun for a 2010 National Magazine Award in General Excellence.

- It’s not just the individual components of this publication that make it stand out; the overall packaging—the design, the typography, the clever (but not smart-alecky) display copy, the pacing and organization—reveals the intelligence, the passion, the love of its makers. – Steven Slon, Magazine Association of the Southeast
