    Inspired by the 'Cost of Living Thread'...

    How much does it cost you for a night out on the town?

    for myself on a normal night

    $15 - a 6pack or a bottle to start out
    $30 - drinks at the bar
    $10 - cover to get into wherever we might go
    $10 - cab rides
    $10 - smokes, gum and a snack


    for myself being generous on a big night

    $30 - for a case of beer of a big bottle to have at the pad
    $40 - drinks (rounds) at the bar
    $20 - cover charge (maybe at a few places)
    $60 - party favours (optional)
    $30 - cover and a few drinks at the boozecan
    $20 - pitching in on afterhours beer delivery


    I NEED to have less big nights out.
    so what's your excuse?

    I'll spend:
    • $10 total on cabfare
    • $25 on drinks
    • $20 on dinner (the woman usually pays for her own)

    usual saturday night:

    3 pints- $9
    2 pitchers- $14
    jukebox- $4
    smokes- $5
    then i usually end up spending another $10-$20 buying drinks for the bartender, or friends who showed up late, or the girl i'm trying to take home...

    total: $42-$52

    then after leaving the bar i usually buy 2 40s... so that's another $5 or something...

    i have more expensive nights... mainly if i start dipping into hard liquer...
    but they don't often get much cheaper...

    Train Fares- 60c-$1.20

    Food- $7.00

    Paint- $8.00 (for roughly 2 peices, using budget paint)

    when you dont drink or do drugs, night outs are very cheap at the same time can get boring

    and when your living on $100 a week you gotta cut corners....

    depends on where im at....

    like mondays.....dollar domestics. so you do that math, plus 4/5 bucks on foosball/jukebox.

    now on the other end of the spectrum, say i just got paid and my boy from philly is in town and he wants to go to the titty bar. well then, the tab could very well reach into the hundreds. not to mention the court costs if we get in trouble after the bars close. haha

    I don't usually go out to drink...its a fuckin rip off. I usually bring liquor home and drink with friends, so that doesn't apply to this thread....
    however, if i do go out its usually to artsy parties where you drink free wine or kegs where you pay $5. My friend usually drives.
    Other than that, if its a chill night out I might catch a movie ($9) and go out to eat ($7).
    Yes, I am a cheap polack....avg night out= about $16-20

    it depends

    if i'm going out with the boy, no money, just make him happy. last saturday he spent $200 on me and my friends.

    if i'm going out with the girls

    $10-$15 cover
    $30 - 2 drinks plus tip

    so $40-$45 a night.

    i don't like to spend money on drinks and food since there are so many other things i'd rather buy. liiike my new car stereo and vacations.

    I started to do the math on this when I realized I have some killer friends. If I don't have a hook-up at a bar...one of my boys usually does. With that said...I'll maybe spend a total of $20...usually everything is free. I've hooked some of these people up with some design work and they just pay for it a couple of drinks at a time.

    the sponsorship gig I've got also hooks me up with pre-drinks...on the freeside of course.

    well i usually tell myself i will keep it under $40 that night but that never happens...

    usually ends up somewhere north of 60... and too often north of $100 when it all adds up. drinks, covers, extras, food....

    fuck!!!.. living is costing me too much!!!!
  13. Jesus Kilo, that's some serious spending...

    I very very rarely spend more than $35 on a night out, maybe $50 if I eat out as well. Usually my home is well stocked with beer and hard liquor, and if it isn't, I tell my friends to bring some (I always host pre and afterhours). I seldomly go anywhere with a cover charge of over $10 cause that'll be a guaranteed snob-fest with $7-8 small drinks that I have absolutely no interest in. Well, I'm interested in the incredibly hot chicks that frequent said places, but these are always on the prowl for the Beemer-driving, button-up wearing, gelled-hair-having cheeseball latino neo-yuppies, so my artfag ass has got nothing to look forward to. Finally, virtually no cabs in PR = we drive everywhere.
