Wanna be a Broke-Ass of the Week?  Holler at us here and we’ll send you the questionnaire.

This time around our Broke-Ass of the Week is Meghan Logue, a busy girl who seems to have her hands in all kinds of internet stuffis.  While music seems to be her main thing she’s also well rounded; she makes Dr. Seuss references.  She also seems to have good taste in bars and Mexican food.  A girl after my own heart.  Read below to learn about her broke-ass existence.

Name: Meghan Logue!

Age: 22

Occupation: Business Coordinator/Content Developer for SomaFM, an Internet radio station.

I also run a radio channel through SomaFM called PopTron. And write for The Bay Bridged and Bay Area Bourgeois.

What neighborhood do you live in?: Potrero Hill. All the way at the top of the hill. It makes me feel like Yertle the Turtle.

Best money saving tip: Pick a bar (or two) and hit them up a lot. Bartenders who know your face '“ or better yet, your name '“ are more likely to give you free or cheap drinks.

What do you refuse to spend money on?: Music. Unless it’s a gift for someone else. Or sex. Unless it’s a gift for someone else.

Most expensive thing you’ve ever bought: Bed and bed frame from Ikea.

How’d that feel?: Well I sold my car and used the proceeds to purchase the bed. This should give you an idea of my level of broke-itude. My car was worth roughly the equivalent of one piece of furniture. Ikea furniture.

Favorite cheap eat: Taqueria Cancun is a classic.

Favorite dive bar: Specs in North Beach. The clientele is ' legit. The polite word is legit.

Best deal you’ve ever gotten: My boss got me a laptop to use for 'œwork.' Heh. He doesn’t know I use it to look at porn. Broke-ass porn, that is.

Favorite free thing to do: Watch Kids in the Hall, Lost or the Office DVDs that my boyfriend 'œrents' from his workplace: Amoeba records.

If you woke up a millionaire, what’s the first thing you’d buy?: This Castle. To throw post Dolores Park-day parties. I guess that would also have to be the last thing I’d buy.

Despite not having money, do you still love your life?: Hell yeah.

Do you own my book?: What kind of broke-ass buys a book about their own life-style?

Best hangover cure: Is pre-emptive action. Lots of water and some multi-vitamins before bed.

Are you a hipster?: I have never been to Ritual Coffee, I do not ride a fixed-gear, nor have I ever had an asymmetrical haircut, but I do shop at American Apparel. You be the judge.

Broke-Ass Stuart - Editor In Cheap

I've been called "an Underground legend": SF Chronicle , "an SF cult hero": SF Bay Guardian, and "the chief of cheap": Time Out New York, but to those familiar with my work, I'm just "that douchebag who writes books about cheap stuff and drinks a lot".
