Some call it the City of Lights.
We call it the City of Free Lightbulbs. Can you really live-it-up
in Vegas on a quarter a day? Absolutely. You just have to
hit a jackpot with it. If you don't, and you still have
a limited budget, then this site is for you. Years and years
of living like scumbags pays off for the reader because
you can either do as we do, or just laugh at how desperate
we are to get something, anything, for free. And, uh, while
you're reading, are you going to finish that donut? We're,
sort of hungry.
Gold Spike, our home for many years, has closed its doors.
We pay tribute through haikus.

Oh, and you don't get the huge drycleaning bill, either.
