MUG—ad-free and reader-supported—needs you! We need your help to meet our $50,000 operating budget for 2014. To date, we've raised $37,198. If you haven't had a chance yet this year to do so, please support MUG in any amount! Every donation, large or small, will help keep the lights on at MUG.



Addressing small problems today…

You order something from an online retailer but don't have a doorman and you, you know, work. Logistical impasse. Send the package instead to Parcel and schedule a delivery time that works for you, M-F between 7 and 11pm. It's $5 per delivery. Some restrictions apply: no packages weighing more than 30lbs and no larger than 2 feet in any dimension. As of now they're delivering throughout Manhattan only.


Food, booze, groceries, laundry… you have our attention. Delivery enables couch potato-ry of a high order. You get 25 points for every $1 you spend, which you can use for more deliveries, a discount on a Zipcar rental, or donate to some good causes.
