TODAY'S DATE IDEA: MAKE 'EM LAUGH
|The Comedy Store on the Sunset Strip|
Typically most comedy clubs charge around $10 just to get in the door, plus a two drink minimum. You can cut costs by finding your way onto "the list," bypassing your entry fee. You don't have to be famous to get on "the list" (although you might feel that way when you arrive!). I tracked down free entry to the comedy store by doing a quick online search for free tickets. Easy peasy.
Total cost for the whole night was just over $20.
Keep in mind similar options too: an open mic night, a poetry slam, a storytelling competition, or even consider grabbing the microphone yourself for karaoke night.
