Week 6 - "Free Hockey"

This week was supposed to be another try at the date we both planned, but late in the week my best friend Steph called and asked if we'd like tickets to the Omaha Lancers v. Lincoln Stars hockey game.  She also mentioned that there would be $1 beer, soda and hot dogs before the game and that she even had a babysitter (her mom) lined up for the little guy.  How could we say no? 
So we dropped the little man off with his "Aunt Donita" and headed up to the Omaha civic center.  Dinner consisted of pre-game hot dogs and beer - which is a rare treat for me since I'm still nursing.  We enjoyed the game (or at least what we saw of it), but were disappointed that the refs broke up all the fights before they had a chance to get good.  We also enjoyed catching up with friends and people watching.  Unfortunately, with the little amount of sleep we've been getting lately, we couldn't make it to the end of the game.  We left after the second period and headed home.

It was a fun night, relatively cheap, though not as cheap as it could have been, and it was nice to be able to enjoy a couple beers in the company of good friends.

Parking:          $6
4 beers:          $4
4 Hot dogs:    $4
Pretzel, water
& soda           $12
tips                 $2

Total:              $32

Previous balance: $104 + $50 weekly - $32 = $122 current balance

Enjoying the game!
