CTNewsJunkie Turns 10: Here’s How You Can Support Public Service Journalism!

Believe it or not, we here at CTNewsJunkie have just completed our 10th year in business. The site was launched in May 2005 and in many ways we still feel like we're just getting started.

Ten years is no small feat as we are not foundation supported, and we're very happy to have made it this far. As such, it's time to switch gears and offer something new to our readers. We're calling it the Capitol Gains Club.

capitol gains logo For members who support us with a $12 per month recurring payment or a $120 annual recurring payment, we will mail you a monthly packet of deals from restaurants and other fun places in and around Hartford and elsewhere in Connecticut. Each deal will be worth around $5 to start, and our goal is to send you $25-$50 worth of deal opportunities each month.

Club members who go to lunch or dinner three times will have more than made up the $10/$12 monthly cost of supporting public service journalism from CTNewsJunkie.

We hope to open our readers up to some new experiences around the state's restuarant scene ... and keep an eye open for other discounts we may find for you as well. Connecticut has a lot to offer!

Our Capitol Gains mailer will be a monthly packet of fun and we're certain that our readers and supporters will enjoy it.
