Broke-ass Stuart

Posted by G.A. Matiasz on June 3, 2007

One of the things that made San Francisco a more enjoyable place to live was Broke-ass Stuart and his Guide to Living Cheaply in San Francisco. No more. After a number of months traveling around South America, Stuart is off to New York for a six month stint in which he hopes to write the Guide to Living Cheaply in New York.

I bought volume 2 of Stuart’s guide when he was still hanging around the city. Whether or not it’s still available, or whether Stuart managed to pull together an updated version before he moved to New York, I don’t know. Check here for Broke-ass Stuart’s website, and here for Last Gasp’s page. Note that Last Gasp lists it as out of stock.

Broke-ass Stuart did say that the one thing in the Guide worth the cover price was the following link. Among other things, FecalFace lists various art and photography openings around San Francisco. Openings equal free wine and snacks. A person desiring to live cheaply in the city could certainly get a buzz, and perhaps a meal, out of hopping from one opening to another.

I do visit New York City on occasion, so I look forward to Stuart’s guide to living cheaply in the Big Apple.
