Editorial Reviews

"Economize, or agonize" seems to be the marching song of the new millennium. Globe Pequot's Cheap Bastard's Guide series has already provided relief for thrift-conscious New Yorkers and Bostonians; now they send their penny-pinching troops onto the steep inclines of San Francisco. Karen Solomon's 256-page guide alerts residents and visitors to Bay City bargains, money-savers that include performing arts and museum events; health care and yoga classes; pets; household items; food and wine; and much more.
