Earlier this week I found myself out and about two nights in a row. The next day I came to the realization that I could try and put that old “there’s nothing to do in Fresno” adage to the test, Mythbusters-style, to see if it holds up. As a bonus, I’d keep track of what I spent, to see if good times could be had on the cheap.
Let’s see how I did.
Monday: Pecha Kucha Night
Total spent: $2
Tuesday: St. Patrick’s Day
Listened to Songs4Pints do the Irish thing at Starline Grill.
Total spent: $9.75 for two pints
Wednesday: John West show
Total spent: $0
Thursday: Flashback Features
Felt the need. The need for some silver screen
bromance speed. Checked out pre-crazy Tom Cruise in “Top Gun,” the greatest volleyball-scene-having movie from the 80s (and that’s saying a lot).
Total spent: $5
Friday: Vintage Fridays
Friday is just beginning, but to cap off my week, I’ll be hanging out tonight with Mike Oz as he goes way, way back to the 90s at Palomino’s.
Total spent: Like the flier says, zero duckets (aka free)
So there it is, kids: if you’re bored in Fresno, then you’re boring. All told, I managed to be entertained five days in a row for about $17. And just think — that was during the work week.
So what am I doing next week? Any suggestions?
