As you all probably figured out, the party train is no longer until work slows down or I speed up. If the latter happens my head might explode. This weekly newsletter has kind of replaced it although its not as events based. I send it out every Wednesday and is based around places and user reviews: http://www.yelp.com/weekly.
Here are the resources that I used to put the train together. Not a comprehensive list because of course, so many things are just one off emails or items that “came across my desk” but something to get you started:
Hollys hot happenings
Here are some more groupon-esque deal sites:
Living Social: http://www.livingsocial.com
The Lunch Deal: http://www.thelunchdeal.com
eDeal Tickets: www.edealtickets.com
365 Things to Do in Austin: http://365austin.fanforce.com
Morgan’s Deals: morgansdeals.com
I really loved doing the party train and if I get some time, I’ll resume. Sad not to be writing it any longer and communicating with you guys regularly, albeit through a mass email. I’ll probably send you Yelp promotions, like Yelp Eats, our version of ARW: http://www.yelp.com/events/austin-yelp-eats because they’re cool and fun. You can also find me on twitter @yelpaustin and @auspartytrain.
Reach out to me whenever – I still know what’s happening around town, only now its a function of my job 🙂
Yours in the ending of an era, or at least a blog,
