London Olympics: The Parties, Viewing Events & How to See a Few Sports Without a Ticket
The Olympics began today in London. If you’re there, but without a ticket to events, Frommer’s published a great slideshow on where to catch some events for free (or super cheap), some fun locations with super big screens to watch events and some great parties to attend. If you’ll be in London during the games- or you just want to know what’s on- it’s well worth watching!
