Seeking a new adventure for the week? Perhaps your bank account doesn’t allow you to partake in most that Living Social has to offer. For your escape needs, entertainment and problem areas, we’ve handpicked our favorite budget-friendly deals of the week.
1. Poconos Resort – $49/night
In need of a brief retreat? Grab your beaux and venture out to the quaint town of Tannersville for some R&R. Located less than two hours from NYC and Philly, cool down in a smooth stone on the water before hiting the powdered slopes centralized. For just $49 a night, it’s a perfect last minute escape.
2. Sista’s The Musical – $39
Enjoy a girls night out with the off- Broadway musical, Sistas. Produced by three-time Tony Award-winner Hinton Battle, the musical presents an insightful look at what it means to be family venturing through the different music eras using classics from Billie Holiday, Erykah Badu and more.

5. New York Minute Dating – $18
Dating in NYC can seem impossible! That’s why the concept of speed dating brings a little more relief to the scene in terms of partner picking. Friends of mine have participated in The NY Minute Dating with locations throughout the city that connect men and women ages 21 to 55 in a relaxing and social atmosphere. Throughout the evening, you’ll be paired up with professional, intelligent singles for quick, low-pressure mini dates. And no need to fret if you don’t click right away– he or she will be a thing of the past in five minutes.
