LivingSocial, however, has served me quite well. As I discovered this summer (is summer over already???), it is a great tool to have when you are exploring a new city. It all started when I purchased a ticket to a Drink the District Wine Festival event in Washington, DC. A week later, I was back on the site, scooping up more affordable deals in an impressive array of unique venues. The next time you are visiting a city for a few weeks or months, bookmark the LivingSocial site; you won't regret it. It is a great way to socialise, meet locals and sample the culture.
And that about caps the globe. How was your summer?
