If you don't know, now ya know! / by Thomas Nguyen

My cousin the Thrifty DC Cook! Ready to roll out the deals!

I hope everyone had a safe and wonderful new year!  2010 has started amazingly.  I had a wonderful time hanging out with my home girl Jenn at my cousin Sylvie's NYE bash! Her and her friends made some amazing food for the party, which I was very happy to eat! Thrifty DC Cook knows how to throw some fun get togethers!  And also today, Penn State won the Captial One Bowl so I am a super happy camper! And I'm happy that OSU won in the Rose Bowl as well.  GO BIG 10!

So a new year, a new decade and new events! Here are some upcoming events that I believe you should check out!
