@kentuckygal Glad you had a great weekend! Must go get some bourbon scented candles now.
I went way overboard this weekend! I estimated $110 for a weekend out of town but ended up spending $400-- including a $230 impromptu hotel room at 2 am after me and my man friend were abandoned by our group we were supposed to stay with. Oh well, it was a good time.
@kentuckygal Have fun on the Bourbon Trail! I suggest it to all the transplants at work (I don't live in KY anymore, but within driving distance). Four Roses is one of my favorites.
@Heather Funk@facebook @Allison Yes I am a cards fan- but going to watch the Reds! Sadly, I haven't lived in Louisville since high school. I haven't been to Derby festivities in so long. I might need to make a trip, thanks for reminding me!
Leaving my middle of nowhere work town to go to a MLB game in the "big city" (medium-sized city). It's a work event, so the tickets are free but I will probably spend about $50 on food/beer. My friend I stay with in the city had a really rough work week so I plan on spending $20 on a bottle of wine for her. I need to stock up on tea, $20 and then probably another $30 on eating out over the weekend while I'm in the city. Estimate-- $120 for the weekend
Ok this is bold but I am going to go with $50 total, to include drinks tonight and tomorrow and groceries on Sunday. After my $700 weekend last time, I need to chill :)
@Caitlin with a C Bummed you missed out on the Alabama Shakes tickets. They are fantastic live. You should check Craigslist the a couple days before the concert, there are usually people trying to get rid of tickets last minute.
@Caitlin with a C I probably would have decided to fly to Dallas had they gone farther (I went to every single game last year when we won the NC). It was probably for the best. Being a fan gets pricey.
@Heather Funk@facebook I am personally heartbroken for them also, but it saved me all the money I was planning on spending going to Indy on Sunday!
My basketball team losing on Friday helped a ton, meaning I didn't drop several hundred dollars going to the Elite 8 games on Sunday.
