It's the first weekend of the month. That means it's time for your favorite museum happy hour.
But you probably already spent the bulk of your paycheck on rent this week. And we're guessing you haven't eaten a solid meal in three days, just to save the last few bucks in your bank account for some low-cost partying.
We get it. Times are rough. That's why Crossfade hooks it up with a guide for folks on a budget each week.
