Austin Party Train: So Long, Farewell

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:

Events:
Austinmetro.com
Austinist.com
austin360.com
Austinchronicle.com
Rare magazine
Thrillist
Hollys hot happenings

Funny stuff:
Cracked.com
Iamhilarious.com
Failblog
Engrish

Deals:
Slickdeals.com
Wireddeals.com
Fatwallet.com

Here are some more groupon-esque deal sites:

Localiter: www.localiter.com

Soon-to-be launching:

Deals in Austin: http://www.dealsinaustin.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,
Kelly
