Swap Meet ~ Fee

Saturday Feb 24 at 9pm
Piracy - Karaoke - Conviviality

This Saturday is the Lunar New Year festival (the Year of the Golden
Pig no less). Golden Dragon Parade. Firecrackers. Car show. The works.

You know a place where people are actually interested in your
extensive krautrock Mp3 collection. You know a place where you can sing
karaoke to that one Disney song, in Italian.

You will turn to your posse and say: "Forget those crowded overpriced
bars -- come follow me down this dark alley!"

Happy New Year, from Swap Meet.

Cheap is back.....

Hey guys,

Thanks for everyone's notes asking about Cheapskatin' being M.I.A. I must say that my real job has been fairly busy lately and I haven't given the site the time it deserves.

I'd like to have the site be eventually community-driven. Powered by you all.

As I ramp up with a new design for the site and ways for everyone to contribute, I would love to start hearing from all of you if you have favorite free spots, free events, free food.... Please email me or post in the comments for now. I can give the people who post the most author access to the site to start putting in their own events.

Feel free to email me if you're interested: amy [at] cheapskatin [dot] com

Keep it cheap,
