Love Don't Cost a Thing-If You Know Where to Go

Published February 13, 2005

I had a blast writing this very silly article, as I had recently been chosen as an assistant editor for the paper and felt I had more room to experiment. Which meant lots of plays on words that I thought were clever. But the article provides good information about things to do in the expensive city of Boston that work on every day of the year--a genre that I seem to have pioneered (and thankfully improved upon since this breathy piece) at Lifestyle.

Lead paragraph:

We have heard that the best things in life are free, but we have also heard that we are living in a material world and diamonds are a girl's best friend. So, what advice can be offered to a penniless college student hit by cupid's arrow? First, resist the urge to turn to Napoleon Dynamite for advice and "build a cake" or a boondoggle keychain for your potential date. Second, if you want to avoid breaking the bank and your lover's heart, we suggest you take our advice instead.
