What they're saying about SavvyCities ...

"The word 'savvy' says it all — trust Kathy to not only recommend the best in your city, but to be an effective business partner as well. Not only is she a great curator, having an innate feel for what her readers are interested in, but her commercial instincts are razor sharp. I call her “Huffington Jr.” --John Loken, EVP Marketing, Ticketmaster North America (formerly with Goldstar Events, Inc.)
"My husband and I took turns taking our son into the City for adventures the last three days of spring break and had such a blast. AT&T Park, MOMA, Exploratorium, Aquarium, Bay Cruise and on and on… even the wax museum was a hoot! Thanks for the opportunity to win the passes and for your awesome website!" --Lara Starr, producer of Consumer Talk with Michael Finney on KGO Newstalk 810
