Free Tickets!

I won free tickets to see Spamalot next weekend on Broadway!

Not only has it been over a year since I have been in New York City, but I’ve never seen a Broadway show. When I tell most people that, their jaw drops in amazement. But then again most people forget that I have only lived on the East Coast for 5 years now, and that for three of them I was a poor college student. At $80 per ticket, Broadway is pretty much cost prohibitive when you’re a student (and before you mention the discount ticket booth in Times Square, I’ll say that I’m just too lazy to stand in line for several hours).

In this case, I actually won two free tickets from American Express as part of their Membership Changes Everything campaign. They have some pretty sweet deals available, I just happened to be in the right place at the right time.

Oh, and this will also mark my first experience taking the $20/seat Chinatown bus. According to the hard-hitting news reports that aired recently on the local networks, I should be fearing for my life and all. But actually, I’m just really looking forward to going!

  1. I’m so jealous! I would love to see spamalot on Broadway! For that matter, I would just plain love to go to NYC. No fair.

  2. Oh I love NYC! When you have a chance someday you should definitely reach out and grab it. If money is a concern, there are plenty of ways to see NYC on little or no cash each day. When you have the opportunity let me know, I’d be happy to share some of the secrets!
