Between the covers of all vintage magazine collections, there lies historical perspective, fond memories, and old pieces of squished lunchmeat turned to jerky. Start a meat-curing collection with the help of today's Groupon: for $8, you get 12 issues of Metro Magazine (an $18 value), a regional publication dedicated to covering happenings from the Triangle to the coast.
Metro Magazine has been in publication for more than 10 years, cramming oodles of useful and engaging editorial content into an eye-catching four-color and non-battery-operated format. Readers are regularly exposed to gripping original content, popular columnist pieces, and attractive advertising for perusing on a leisurely afternoon or while hunting elusive wyverns across the Arctic tundra. Recent issues featured cover topics such as “Art Museum Expansion Opens in April,” “Coastal Restoration,” and "Seaside Sunsets." Illuminating articles allow readers to brush up on the Triangle area’s cultural scene while enjoying the entertainment-oriented content, as well as coverage of restaurants, design, fashion, and businesses.
Like listening in on the next-door neighbor’s conversations, a good local magazine keeps readers informed on the city and its trendsetters, but helps readers avoid the eavesdropping injuries that inevitably occur from falling out of trees. Stay in the loop with a subscription to Metro Magazine, or send one over to a couch-loving cousin painfully unaware of the world outside his mother's basement compound.
