Recently, a friend turned me onto Groupon, a website that offers a daily “group rate” coupon. Most vendors offer group rates, and this site gets you those rates by marketing a particular coupon to a group. Currently, they seem to only offer coupons in bigger cities, but if you happen to live near a bigger city, its a great way of discovering what there is to do around town. Most of offers seem to be very localized businesses that are generally pretty interesting.

I just bought tickets from Groupon for tickets to Paramount Theater’s Summer Film Festival, a collection of older movies. A perfect date on a hot summer day! I’m looking forward to taking my sweetie out for a nice Audrey Hepburn flick, or maybe “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes”.

Cruise on over to Groupon if you’re interested in getting a deal on seeing what there is to do about town.
