Mustachian outing
« on: June 17, 2015, 09:22:57 AM »
So I got tired of working saving and only going home so I decided to drag a friend to a concert who is also economizing.  I did budget $40 for us to eat out at a local taco chain but that was all.  I picked up one of our local free papers and discovered the Kennedy Center gives free concerts year round with all types of music and bits of comedy. Car-centric friend agrees to use Metro thus saving finding a parking spot and possibly paying for it $20 not spent. :-)

Kennedy Center has a free shuttle from the subway station.  I did splurge on a beaded top from a "good" Salvation Army though $7.  We saw an Armenian oud player plus 3 girls who mostly sang acapella.  I didn't understand a word of it but enjoyed being out and about and they had great harmony so it was a pleasure. Did I mention being a Nielsen member I got points for eating out which can be converted to merchandise and we intend on seeing 2 more free concerts this year?

Not putting out for full concert tickets or concert swag, not bugging out over parking or lack of, not putting out for a full service restaurant, priceless!!

SCORE!!

There are more ways of making use of local resources than picking dandelion greens in the park as your post so eloquently illustrates.  And...imagine the stress you saved by not having to park in the teeny weeny little commercial parking space.
