Overview

This book is for busboys, poets, social workers, students, artists, musicians, magicians, mathematicians, maniacs, yodelers and everyone else out there who wants to enjoy San Francisco not as a rich person, but as a real person. What are you looking for? Free food? Got it. Cheap drinks? Yup, got those too. How about the feeling that you're getting the best of this glorious city without having to pawn the old wedding ring that your grandmother gave you as a family heirloom? Yeah, that's in here too.

Based on the underground hit and "Best Local Zine" (San Francisco Bay Guardian) Broke-Ass Stuart's Guide To Living Cheaply in San Francisco is a gritty, anecdotal and funny guide for both locals and visitors, who are looking to get a piece of the action without having to lose of piece of themselves. Now you might be standing there saying, "Man, I'm a broke-ass too. Why should I spend my money on this book?" Think of it this way: There is so much cool cheap and free stuff in this book, that within days of buying it, you will have made back the cost of this book times ten. Hell, the free food list on page 280 alone will probably save you enough to pay for those platinum teeth you've been saving up for. So buy this book, dammit! It's good for your mind, great for your soul, awful for your liver, and amazing for your wallet.
