Let’s face it. If you’re in your 20s or the early part of your 30s, hitting up Happy Hour or meeting at the bar on a weekend/weeknight is probably part of your lifestyle. I know, I know…in a perfect world, we would regularly meet up to jog or ride our bicycles together, but for whatever reason, from Tuesday to Saturday most of the texts we receive are usually, “What’s up for tonight/tomorrow night/the weekend?” or “Hey, $2 beers today, meet me at 5:30?” or “A few of us are meeting at (random Midtown bar), you should come through!”
Don’t get me wrong, these little get-togethers are usually a lot of fun, but spending $45 (Houston)/ $55 (Dallas)/$65 (Chicago), $105 (Shoutout to everybody in New York) on a random night of the week can really burn a hole in your pocket over time.
This post is a quick rundown of 3 tips I’ve been known to use to reduce my going-out costs, while still having a good time.
