ASME is the American Society for Magazine Editors. Add another ‘S’ to that, and you’ve got ASSME: the American Society for Shit-Canned Media Elites—a support group and material pool for pink-slipped members of the worlds of word and pictures.
On the ASSME blog today, Brooke Moreland (she’s Broke to us!) writes a fun piece about a whole day’s worth of cheap-o activities you can do in Greenpoint, starting with handball ($1 if you don’t have any of the equipment already), moving on to $7 yoga, $1.50 tacos at Papacito’s, and ending with a 7-and-a-half hour drinking marathon, planned for those with plenty of experience imbibing in the middle of the afternoon and consisting of over half the day’s $25 budget. You’ll have to read the piece to find out where to get $2 pitchers and so much more. Bravo, Ms. Moreland: a day well spent, and with plenty of unemployment-check change left over.
