Cheap Date

(I promise I’m not talking about you)

My friend recently challenged me to orchestrate an entire day of fun/food for little or no money.  At the end of  it, the grand total came to right under $30 for 2 meals and 2 hours perusing through our local museum for 2 people the entire day.

Here’s what the day looked like:

Counter clockwise: Calamari Fritti, Spin Dip, Buffalo Wings, Mussels fra diavolo, Chicken Parm Sliders, and Margherita Pizza all for $2-$5.  A great tip to utilize is scoping out your local happy hours.

$.35/Oysters…it pays to call around to dig up current specials at various restaurants.  The internet is always a useful tool at your disposal and specials are often listed on websites.

Another great tip is to scour Groupon, Living Social, Entertainment Books and the like.

I used a local city search engine to find that our local Museum is free on Tuesdays.  (My recent trip to the International Festival was also free).

Wishing you delicious (and creepy) weekend fun!

p.s., Don’t forget about Suzie’s Bake Sale that is being orchestrated by my amazing friend at Vernonica’s Cornucopia!
