No matter how long you've lived in a city, you can never really know what it's thinking, or whether it'll leave you for a younger version of yourself. Stay as plugged into your town as possible with today’s Groupon to Seattle Met magazine. Choose between the following subscription services:
• For $8, you get a one-year subscription (a $16.95 value).
• For $16, you get a two-year subscription (a $30 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 guide to the city's wealth of diamond-encrusted Lionel Richie statues, 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, whereas 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, with each article written in Seattle Met's authoritative-but-witty editorial voice. Like a town crier, a good local magazine keeps you informed about 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 confused Seattle newcomer who keeps asking where they can get a picture with the Mounties.
