Among items that became available for subscription in the great 19th-century convenience craze, magazines remain popular today, unlike monthly tooth-repair powder and mustache fertilizer. Enjoy timely delivery with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a one-year subscription to New Orleans magazine.
New Orleans magazine is a monthly guide and digest of life in America's only Creole-literate city. Great for recent Louisiana transplants or Big Easy lifers, the monthly glossy gives city dwellers and suburban denizens a behind-the-scenes look at New Orleans and its secretive armies of praline-powered child robots. Recent features include a profile of local female achievers, a piece on vampires in pop culture and their connection to the Bayou state, and an unveiling of the city's best new restaurants, laden with mouthwatering food photography. The magazine gives plenty of coverage to New Orleans's food and dining circuit, in part with its Table Talk column. Subscribers can also keep tabs on arts, festivals, and other events, read interviews with notable locals, and check out monthly columns on business, health, and education.
New Orleans magazine offers a chance to keep up with most of the metropolis without leaving home or to open the recursive doors of a meta-city by reading it outdoors in the middle of your neighborhood. Use today's Groupon to beef up Bayou knowledge, stay on top of city-wide dialogue and culinary gossip, or complete the quest to win the family-wide, esoteric honor of owning the largest collection of city-named periodicals.
This Groupon is valid for new subscribers only and is redeemable beginning August 14, 2010.
New Orleans Magazine
Each glossy page of New Orleans magazine is a shining example of what makes the Big Easy a great place to live. Features and columns cover everything from events and attractions to profiles of local artists and musicians. The magazine's specialty, though, is food and dining coverage, both introducing readers to new restaurants and sharing recipes for making shrimp and oyster dishes at home.
For a slightly different angle on the area, readers can also rifle through New Orleans' sister lifestyle magazines. There are seven, all told, including Louisiana Life and the Southern Louisiana region's Acadiana Profile.
