Guess Which SF Institution is NOT Shutting Down Permanently!

As you probably know by now, this website is labor of love. If my goal was to get rich, and I chose running a small independent media company as the way to do it, I’d be a complete fucking idiot. Luckily the goal with Broke-Ass Stuart has always been to serve the community as best as possible while informing them, entertaining them, and making them giggle. And I’ve been incredibly successful at accomplishing those things.

But that obviously doesn’t equate to making money, which is why I’m so happy to celebrate Broke-Ass Stuart’s 4 Year Patreon Anniversary! That’s right, the BAS Patreon has existed for four years now, and it has LITERALLY been the difference between this website being here or shutting down forever, especially the past couple years when COVID completely obliterated our income.

What Your Support Allows Us to Do

Here are just a few of the important things we’ve covered during the pandemic with the financial support of our readers:

Please Consider Joining the BAS Patreon

If you’re currently not contributing, please consider joining the BAS Patreon at $6 or above today. Not only will you be keeping us alive, you’ll also get the really ridiculous postcards I send out a few times a year. Some examples are right here.

I just want to take a moment to thank every single person who has ever helped keep alive, whether it was on Patreon, PayPal, sending checks, or even the IndieGoGo a few years back. Seriously, THANK YOU! Without you, the world would be far less informed and have laughed at far fewer dick jokes.

Thank you again. I love you!

Broke-Ass Stuart - Editor In Cheap

Stuart Schuffman, aka Broke-Ass Stuart, is a travel writer, poet, TV host, activist, and general shit-stirrer. His website is one of the most influential arts & culture sites in the San Francisco Bay Area and his freelance writing has been featured in Lonely Planet, Conde Nast Traveler, The Bold Italic, and too many other outlets to remember. His weekly column, Broke-Ass City, appears every other Thursday in the San Francisco Examiner. Stuart’s writing has been translated into four languages. In 2011 Stuart created and hosted the travel show Young, Broke, and Beautiful on IFC and in 2015 he ran for Mayor of San Francisco and got nearly 20k votes.

He's been called "an Underground legend": SF Chronicle, "an SF cult hero":SF Bay Guardian, and "the chief of cheap": Time Out New York.
