Free ticket to the season opening game!
YES! Corporate is sponsoring some NBA tickets so I put my name in the hat and won one. I’m going straight there after work because I’m hoping they are giving away some stuff tonight.
I love freebies. I always keep an eye out for free entertainment. There are always lots of local events going on in the Summer, but now that we are well into Fall, things are drying up.
Here is a site I just discovered this year for free theater. The tickets are for shows in October. We saw Ah Wilderness! and Alexander & the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day at two small theaters. We hadn’t been to these theaters and will probably patronize them in the future. There are still one or two shows left this weekend.
I get 99% of my books and DVDs from the library. This is not quite free, as I just voted yes on the library bond. I love the library because it is such a great resource for the community.
This post is a bit of a fluff piece because I’ll be at the game until 10pm and won’t be able to do too much blogging tonight.
In any case, my philosophy is don’t pass up freebies. It has become a habit for me to search for free entertainment, and this is good training for retirement!
Talking about freebies, the 401k match that you get from your work is a huge one so don’t pass it up. I’ll write a series next week to go over the 401k from a salaryman’s point of view.
What are some of your favorite freebies? Share the knowledge.
*late night update*
WooHoo!!! The Blazers won 106 – 92. Both team were pretty rusty and defense was soft all around, but we pulled away at the five minutes mark and put the game away with a 16-1 run. I haven’t been to an opening night game before and it was pretty exciting.
opening night hat and free Chalupa ticket. I didn’t get the bobblehead doll, I think you have to sign up for a credit card or something like that.
