Like out-of-town friends, magazines pop by every so often to give you a colorful update on the latest happenings before taking up permanent residence on the shelf in the bathroom. Schedule a regular visitation with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a one-year general membership and subscription to the New Orleans Pictorial (a $60 value).
Celebrating life and culture in the Crescent City, the New Orleans Pictorial promotes and supports visual arts through special events and a membership magazine. The bimonthly broadsheet's pages burst with images of the works of talented New Orleans designers, photographers, and artists. A recent issue features photography by Christopher Porche West, as well as work by sculptor Kim Bernadas, whose rendering of the Greek muse Terpsichore will be on display in Coliseum Square Park. In addition to a subscription, readers will get members-only invites and discounts on yearly cultural events, as well as promotions from local business partners. Pictorial card carriers also get first notice of exhibitions, tastings, and alligator gossip summits.
