Yesterday, Held2gether was Groupon’s featured deal in Long Beach, and one of several deals offered in the greater Los Angeles area!

For those of you living under rocks or in FBI safe houses, Groupon offers deals on local businesses for a 24-hour period. A certain number of people must buy in for the deal to be “on.” Oh, and the deal is always a killer deal – at least 50% off regular price for whatever goods or services are offered. Groupon has become an important part of my social life with the many restaurant deals offered. But I’m gonna need to stop buying all the wine-related ones or my sponsor is going to have a cow.

Just kidding.

I had a point. Right, Groupon. Not just anyone can have a Groupon, you know. Groupon sifts through review sites such as Yelp!, looking for businesses that meet Groupon’s standards of excellence. Then they contact the business owner and suggest offering a Groupon.

Groupon contacted Held2gether a couple months ago, based on our perfect 5-star Yelp! rating, and after waiting our turn to get to the top of the pile, our offering was featured yesterday. H2G’s Groupon feature “tipped” at 10:31 a.m. with 20, then went on to sell a total of 68 by the end of the 24-hour period.

If you purchased a Held2gether Groupon, thank you! If you missed out this time, don’t despair – there’s a good chance we’ll play with Groupon again in the future. In the meantime, Held2gether classes and workshops are already incredibly affordable, so why not kick the new year off right and do something new?
