THE BEST THINGS IN LIFE ARE GIVEN TO YOU BY PUBLICISTS: HOW TO SCORE LOADS OF FREE SHIT.:
Just how Golden is this swag age? What, exactly, can one get for free? Where, precisely, are publicists willing to draw the line on ridiculous requests?
To answer those questions, I recently decided to try to live one workweek in Manhattan, Monday through Friday, without spending a single cent. Every hotel, hostel or B&B -- free. Every meal -- no charge. All of the week's parties, clubs, libations -- gratis.
