Like the perfect houseguest, a magazine arrives once a month to catch up, and then happily disappears down the recycling shoot when you’re done. Reap the benefits of fleeting friendship with today’s Groupon: for $9, you get a one-year, 12-issue subscription to Long Island Pulse magazine (an $18 value).
Long Island Pulse stuffs all of the island's lifestyle, arts, fashion, sports and entertainment news into one convenient magazine-sized package. The publication earned six first-place awards and 11 overall at the Press Club of Long Island Media Awards in 2010, and is one of the largest regional periodicals. Culture vultures will receive 12 copies of LI Pulse in their mailboxes to stay up to date on both the big events and best-kept secrets in town. Gourmands can feast on regular columns such as Drinkology and Foodie Gossip, as well as reviews of the best places to wine and dine, and mix-tape suggestions from music guru Steve Matteo keep iPods and gramophones fresh.
Subscribers aiming to meet people in high places can read about the movers, shakers, and trendsetters of the local business community, and then invite them out for a mountaintop drink. Fitness and sports features boast a double-dose of high-energy edutainment for fans of all things physical. Proud abode owners will gain access to all the latest real-estate happenings and décor trends, allowing them to makeover Monopoly sets to lay claim to the prettiest row of green cottages in all of Marvin Gardens.
