Change in Your Inbox

By Anne Kenderdine

We've heard a bunch of you tell us that one of the main ways you use the Going Out Guide is through our e-mail newsletter (see a sample). Today, we're changing up our e-mail to make it quicker to read and scan our top picks. In addition to receiving our regular Thursday newsletter, you'll also get one on Mondays to help you plan the week ahead.

Our Thursday e-mail puts the spotlight on our weekly live discussion and lets you be the first to read the latest Washington Post restaurant and bar reviews. Every week, you'll also get our Best Bets for the most noteworthy events of the week.

On Mondays, we'll send you the popular Free & Easy column, where Fritz Hahn shows you how to have fun for free every single day of the week, as well as the Guru event picks for some of the quirky, under-the-radar events you might not know about.

And once a month, we'll send you a special e-mail with details about our monthly happy hour, always held on the second Thursday.

If you're not getting our e-mail yet, sign up! Just click the box next to Washington Going Out Guide in the Arts & Living section of our e-mail newsletter options.

When you get the new e-mail, let us know what you like and don't like about it. Put your comments below or e-mail us.

I don't like the new version at all. I greatly miss the summary of new restaurant reviews, plays, shows, etc that used to be in the yellow box at the bottom. Now I have to make *NINE* separate clicks to get the same information, and it's all cluttered in with the general category rather than just what's new for this week. Thumbs down.

+1 to misere ... I prefer the old version.

Being able to scan a few items for each category at the end of the e-mails was the best part! I scanned the three items in the new email and deleted it. (Maybe that means I have a short attention span, but that's why I liked the list being delivered right to my inbox - no having to go to the Web site.)
