Since 1948, San Diego Magazine has informed, inspired, and illuminated minds with the most important San Diego scuttlebutt, exploring everything from the area's top doctors and best restaurants to its bountiful beaches and knowledge-dropping schools. With a one-year subscription to the publication, you'll enjoy monthly issues containing engaging and edgy editorial items on topics such as how to select a lawyer or why Tahiti might be an ideal escape following the failure of your one-person musical on the life of Enrico Fermi. San Diego Magazine has often been recognized for excellence in journalism, having received several awards from the San Diego Press Club, a nomination in this year’s City and Regional Magazine Association awards, and a respectful thumbs-up from the ghost of Herodotus. Current subscribers can use this Groupon toward an additional year of subscription.
Those who prefer to celebrate the best in life as opposed to reading about it can opt for a ticket to the magazine's 2010 Best of San Diego Party. The event, held at the NTC Promenade in Point Loma, toasts the best of America's finest city with complimentary comestibles and wine and beer samples from an assortment of area wineries and beer-basins. As local artists pummel the air with live music, guests can sample products from some of San Diego Magazine_s "Best of" winners while also ogling art and eye-absorbing the latest fashions. Celebrate the city you first parachuted into a dozen years ago and keep your stomach occupied with your admission to all the area-centric action.
Must activate subscription within one month of Groupon feature date. Must be 21 to attend Best of San Diego Party.

San Diego Magazine

Everything is about helping readers sap the most enjoyment possible from their city. The monthly magazine details all kinds of local happenings—high-society parties, fashion shows, restaurant grand openings. A luxury apartment guide showcases the city's swankiest penthouses, and a travel section points the way to fun destinations. With the weekender, it's easy to sniff out concerts and festivals. There's also a yearly awards issue that covers everything from which restaurant serves the best cheeseburger to which lawyer yells "This whole court is out of order!" the loudest.
