The Week In Free: April 15-22


We haven't yet been touched by the financial crisis, but that isn't to say we're living like kings either. Having gone into the least lucrative white-collar profession in existence, we know a thing or two about what it means to live on the cheap. Recently, we put our degree in free to good use by scouring the internet for fun stuff to do in this city that won't cost a cent. You're welcome.
