Dealery's Deal Of The Week

We know there are tons of deal sites out there... and just not enough time! So we're partnering with our friends at to bring you some of our favorite deals every single week. 

Dealery is a great place to find deals online -- they put discounts from all the deal sites in a single place! They also have coupons and a wedding section! Follow them on Facebook for more great deals. Hear are Dealery's picks for the week:

Shooting Range | $49 for 5 Gun Shooting Experience at Valastro Intl. Academy ($250 Value)

Knowing how to properly handle a gun is invaluable and just plain awesome. For $49, retired law enforcement officials will teach you how to properly and safely handle and shoot 5 different guns inside their facility and range. The shooting range is located in Uniondale, minutes away from Valastro International Academy. Throughout the two-hour session (simulated, then live), you’ll learn shooting and safety techniques for a .22 rifle, 12 gauge shotgun, .223 caliber rifle, .308 caliber rifle and 410 gauge shotgun.

Two Tickets to Any Comedy Show, Two Glasses of Wine, and One Gourmet Brick-Oven Pizza, as well as Two Return Tickets

When it comes to comedy, the venue is just as important as the performer -- which is why no one at the office is thrilled that Bob from accounting has turned the water cooler into his personal stage. With today's deal from the ultra-hip Tribeca Comedy Lounge, trade second-rate sets at work for uproarious laughs from NYC's biggest talent in NYC's newest club. Pay $39, and you'll score two tickets to any show, two glasses of wine, and your choice of one gourmet brick-oven pizza, an order of succulent calamari, or an authentic antipasto, as well as two return tickets (a $108 value).

$10 to Spend on Ice Cream and Frozen Yogurt

Summer is ice cream season. Get yours started off right with a trip to Sedutto Ice Cream and Yogurt on either Garth Road in Scarsdale or First Avenue in Manhattan. This delicious deal will get you $10 to spend on specialty ice cream and frozen yogurt for just $5. Sedutto Ice Cream and Yogurt is your one-stop shop for frozen treats. Purists can opt for ice cream in a variety of creative flavors like peanut butter and chocolate chip or good old mint chocolate chip. Try the crowd-pleasing Moosetracks: vanilla ice cream with a fudge ripple and chocolate peanut butter cups. 

One Month of Unlimited Tanning Bed Usage or One By-Hand Spray Tan

You love living in a city with such beautiful, soaring buildings -- unfortunately, they shield us from the sunlight more often than not, rendering us a bit pale. Triumph over the design of Gotham and land a gorgeous golden hue with today's deal from The Tanning Spot NYC. Pay $30 (regularly $65) for one month of unlimited tanning bed usage, or land a hand-sprayed spray tan for $30 (regularly $60).

HostelBooker's Guide To NYC's Best Food Trucks

Here is a guide to the best food trucks in New York City from our friends at HostelBookers!

Street food in New York is a foodie revelation. Of course, hot dog vendors are still ten a penny, but there’s now a whole new scene of exciting artisan foodstuffs to try on the streets of NYC. Book into one of the cheap New York hotels so you’ve got money left over to spend on these food trucks…

Wafels & Dinges

At Wafels & Dinges the are five sweet waffles to try, including the de verdekke – a waffle and ice cream sandwich between two chewy wafers. Add whatever ‘dinges’ you like as extra - bananas, strawberries and Nutella score highly. Savoury waffles come in the form of BBQ pulled pork with coleslaw, sweet barbecue sauce and a coolickle, or bacon + syrup.

Find trucks at the gate of Central Park Zoo, the Great Lawn near the 85th St entrance and Columbus Circle in front of the Time Warner building.


Frites’N’Meats produce mouth-watering medium-rare burgers, served with killer fries. There are four burgers to choose from including ‘grass fed angus’ and the ‘wagyu american kobe’, and five cheeses as well as 11 toppings. There are six aioli sauces for your frites, including sundried tomato and wasabi mayo.

The Treats Truck

The Treats Truck – known as ‘Sugar’ – is filled with freshly baked cookies, brownies, crispy squares, no-melt ‘ice cream’ cakes and caramel crème sandwiches and dessert nachos. You can find its next location by following them on Twitter @thetreatstruck.

Schnitzel & Things

The only mobile food truck serving authentic schnitzel is Schnitzel & Things. Hand pounded, breaded thin cutlets of meat – either chicken, veal or pork – are fried and served alongside Austrian potato salad, cucumber salad and lemon wedges. You can also try bratwurst sausage served with sauerkraut. Dessert includes Tahitian vanilla panacotta.

Souvlaki GR

Souvlaki GRserves authentic Greek street food. Try the souvlakia, made up of charcoal-grilled meat wrapped in a warm pitta and served with tzatziki sauce, tomato and onion. You can also get French fries done the Greek way, topped with Feta cheese.

Brooklyn Botanic Gardens Plant Sale
