Recession Era Entertainment 

Got any ideas for cheap, recession-era entertainment?

Nick Clark: Redbox, Red Vines & Red Bull: $6.

Jamie Gadette: Potluck dinner parties! Food, friends and boxed wine. Nothing better.

Jennifer Van Grevenhof: Adopt a cat from the Humane Society and get a ball of yarn or some feathers from the dollar store. This will provide you and the cat hours of entertainment for a very meager price.

Ted Scheffler: Yes! Lunch at the Rancho Market in the Latino Mall on Redwood Road. Order the El Molcajete. It’s all the cheap entertainment and good eatin’ you could wish for.

Susan Kruithof: Go enjoy all that is beautiful in the great outdoors of Utah. I suggest the Silver Lake Trail up at the top of Brighton Ski Resort. Grab a fishing poll and a picnic basket while you’re at it. A whole day of fun on the cheap.

Josh Loftin: Watching hours of awesomely bad hair-band music on VH1 Classic Friday and Saturday nights to relive the last time the economy was this crappy.

Brandon Burt: With 1,000 yards of size-10 crochet thread and a steel needle, you can make a doily out of millions of tiny stitches. Then, watch your friends’ surprised reactions when you say, “Hey! I made a doily.”

Jesse James Burnitt: Renew your library card and take the family on a scavenger hunt. Then read to one another, acting out all the characters. It’s cheap, stupid fun!

Rachel Scott: Cheap bowling cheap beer = good times!
