Some Holiday Love For The Skint

You don’t have to be broke to follow and love the skint. You just have to be interested in hearing about exciting events going on New York City every single day. And they’re free or extremely affordable, which means that, for once in this town, it doesn’t matter if you’re broke or flush.

I first worked with the skint when the Markets of New York City Guide launched in 2010. They did an awesome giveaway of the guide, and it was memorable for me to see the response from their readers.

I actually met the skint’s founder at the Brooklyn Blog Fest three years ago, I believe. It was fascinating to talk with him about how he was leveraging the blog format to make the skint into something people truly value. His process is detail oriented by necessity, gathering information about thousands of daily events every single week, organizing them into attractive lists, and sending out daily emails. Opening the email from the skint is a breath of fresh air. It is clean, with no or few pictures or graphics, and yet you connect with the font, the signature orange headlines and tiny arrows, and the plethora of events you don’t want to miss.

So if you haven’t registered to receive emails from the skint, do it today! You will never miss out on the coolest events in New York. And if you have events you want to promote to thousands of New Yorkers, send them to the skint and pack the house.

Also, get your tickets in advance for The Winterland Romp, a great holiday evening at a great price.  In true skint spirit, they are offering a special reduced price Tuesday 12/11 only ($10 on Tuesday vs. $15 adv, $18 day of).  It’s a great price to see “…the most foot-stomping, raucous jazz band in the world”, the elusive Chanukah Elf, burlesque, and enjoy a free photo booth to commemorate the evening. $5 punch all night.  And it happens to be taking place after Brooklyn Craft Central’s 5th Annual Holiday Craft Market in Littlefield (they’re unrelated events).

the skint. Free and Cheap New York. Every day.
