Alright, guys, I'm going to be totally honest with you. I'm broke AF. It's mainly because it's summer, and so updating the wardrobe/going out everywhere/living my best life costs a lot of money, apparently? Anyway, whatever the reason is, I don't have a whole lot of loose change to spend on getting turnt.

And I know that I'm not alone. Like I said, summer in the city is awesome - but it can get expensive.

There are tons of super fun places where the drinks are super affordable, and the atmosphere is top notch.
