On Saturday, I hit the gym and worked on legs for a couple of hours. It was brutal and my legs are still sore, but I left the gym on a runner’s high. My gym membership at Gold’s is $325 for a year, so that work-out cost less than a $1.
On Saturday night, I met up with a group of friends at my buddy’s house to watch the Pacquiao-Bradley debacle. (What the %($# were the judges thinking??) $10 to my buddy for the PPV fight and $6 for the six-pack I brought over and shared. It was an awesome fight to watch, and althought definitely dejected by the judges’ blindness/corruption, we hung out for an hour afterwards just kicking it and having some solid conversation.
On this Sunday afternoon, I hit up Barton Springs with the fellas ($3 admission) and enjoyed the beautiful weather in this early Austin summer. We got in some swimming and chilled out. Unfortunately, my buddy did not get that girl’s number.
After a couple of hours at Barton Springs, we picked up some delicious burgers at P. Terry’s ($10), then hit up Kasbah and smoked a Blue Mist hookah outside on the deck ($5) and enjoyed a couple of beers ($3) and weather ($0) at this BYOB establishment. A couple of lines from Andy Samberg and Chris Parnell’s “Lazy Sunday” played in my head at some point during the day.
All in, I spent $38 for a very relaxing, very memorable weekend.
Key ingredients for a good weekend: Awesome work-out, great friends, beautiful weather, delicious food, flavored tobacco, and cold beer.
My budget now allows me to spend more than this on entertainment, but when the key ingredients are that simple, what’s the point?
What a killer weekend! Is the work-week here already??
