  1. Aguyonclematis suggested your website when I asked him if WPB had something similar to http://www.thriftyhipster.com that lets you know what deals or happy hours are going on where.

    I was curious how you kept up with everything. Is it volunteered time and work or have you made a business out of palmbeachonthecheap? I moved out here a year ago, currently do webpage coding and graphic design and have been looking for new ways to get more involved in the community.

  2. I work for the editor ofFlorida on the Cheap and cover Palm Beach County. I’m new to Thrifty Hipster, but at first glance, it looks like we cover similar things. Free and inexpensive things to do in Palm Beach County. Since I also plan food & wine events around the area at http://savortonight.com , I do cover many of the local happy hours and events at local restaurants.
