What You'll Get
No matter how long you've lived in a city, you can never really know what it's thinking, or whether or not it'll leave you for a younger version of yourself. Today's Groupon keeps you as plugged into your town as possible: for $8, you get a yearlong subscription to Seattle Met magazine (a $16.95 value).
Launched in 2006 and currently the top-selling magazine in the metro market, Seattle Met captures the pulse of Seattle and chronicles it in a neatly folded and eye-catching glossy-bound booklet 12 times a year. Each boldly designed issue features everything from in-depth news stories and essays to restaurant and bar reviews, style and shopping tips, home and garden tips, a tractor-trailer buying guide, and an overview of the city's best offerings. Recent issues have explored the top hiking trails in the area, must-live neighborhoods, and a retrospective of movies filmed in Seattle, whereras older issues include articles such as “Why This Forest Clearing Would Be a Great Place for a Settlement Called Seattle.” More-regular features let you catch up on the city's cultural scene by flipping through the magazine's many entertainment-dedicated pages, or by perusing the restaurant reviews to find a nice nosh for a last date with a stuffy dentist.
Like a town crier, a good local magazine keeps you informed on your city and its newsmakers—and unlike with a town crier, you can dispose of back issues without needing a shovel. Keep yourself in the Emerald City’s loop with a subscription to Seattle Met, or gift a Groupon to a naïve Seattle newcomer who keeps asking when the rain will stop.
