Went to see a hockey game tonight
$30 - Dinner for two
FREE - Tickets
FREE - parking
We went downtown last night to attend the inaugural game of the Huntsville Havoc (formerly the Channel Cats). We had dinner at a local place before and parked at Big Spring Park downtown. It was a metered spot, but after 5pm so free.
We're walking to the arena and some guy GIVES us tickets, before I can get to the ticket window to buy them. How about that? The tickets were general admission and worth only $7 a piece, but so what? The arena only holds about 5,000 so it's not like there is a bad seat anywhere.
Good game, they won 4-1 and the whole night cost me $30. Had that been an NHL game, the parking alone would have been a third of that alone.
