If you live in NYC or another major city you know how expensive it can be. Whether you're shopping for essentials or just want to be entertained. A simple Amaretto Sour (my fav) can cost you $15.00 in a glass that can pass for a shot glass. As a customer I can't tell you know frustrating that is. If you like going out on a busy Friday or Saturday night you're for sure going to run into crowds, no avoiding it. I've given up the bar hopping night life, no more feet hurting trying to look cute, no more $15 Amaretto Sours forget about it. If I'm not making money doing one of my side hustles, bartending or making connections I want no parts of it.
I recently graduated from the YouTube Space NY and I was told that they do free happy hours once a month. WHAT? FREE? I'm there! But let's take this a little farther, the YouTube Space is the perfect place to network and collab with other channels. Can't get any better!
I never even thought other companies had such events, until I met Ben!
When we met Ben and I talked for hours and because of our meeting we decided to go on a "30 Day Blogging Challenge" holding each other accountable. Hence why I've been posting daily! Check out Ben's amazing blog HERE!
Not only has Ben held me accountable he has put me on to really amazing companies who offer free happy hours here in NY. Now as both a bartender and frugalista it's only right for me to share that information with you.
