Wow...that was expensive

Since when did Pizza and a Movie become a special-occasion type of thing? Last night, the Mrs. and I broke away from our healthy eating and fitness plan to have a night on the town. We started with a first-time experience for her at Lemmons. They have delicious deep-dish style pizza (be forwarned- the 14" is WAY too much for two people. I had two pieces, she had one). The cost of wings, pizza and $2 beer: $50. Then we hit the movie theatre. Tickets were $9.50 each, and snacks there zinged us for another $20 even. For those of you keeping track, we had now spent $89.50 before we even sat down in our seats at the theatre. Holy Crap! I know this "growing older" thing is expensive, I just wasn't expecting that. As a side note, we saw Kickass which was pretty good, not amazing. I grade it 82/100.

At any expense, it was a really fun night with my beautiful bride, and I'm glad we went.

Have a great weekend folks- Cheers.


  1. Wow. Think about the people that have to add an $8/hr babysitter to the mix! Glad you had a good time. But think about this: last night Bob and my dinner plus several beers at Farmhaus cost less that what you guys spent. We had Escolar, Nachos, Meatloaf, Tuna Tartare, and Cold Roast Beef. We spent the better part of the evening with Marianne (Chefgirl) and her hubby Jim. I suggest that next time, rent the movie and just go out to eat!
