There are so many fun things to share with you today. I would love to make the Do This Today seeing “Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me” live performance tonight at the Nokia, but tickets are pretty pricy and that breaks my frugal rule (although if you’re interested, get tickets here).

So instead, today’s Do This Today is of the holiday variety. Are you looking to get excited for the holidays but can’t afford the crazy ticket prices? If you sign-up at Goldstar for free, they send out these one-a-day style emails showing discounted tickets to events. Well, they sent out their holiday edition and I pulled the best priced tickets above. So if you aren’t interested in seeing one of these super cheap on-sale shows (listed above), sign up with Goldstar and purchase the tickets through them. There will be a small processing charge, but it’s the only way I can afford tickets to these shows, so I had to share this with you.

Event: Goldstar Holiday Shows
Location: Every major city
Time: 24-7
Cost: Free to sign up at Goldstar, then cheap ticket deals!

Cheap Theater Tickets

My sister wrote a great article for Head Shot Magazine about inexpensive ways to see theater in LA. Check out the article HERE. Erica sees everything that comes to LA, so take her advice. She’s also a (self admitted) frugal person and knows about every deal out there when it comes to live entertainment. Do your wallet a favor, read her article and spend the weekend at the theater!

Happy Hump Day

It’s Wednesday and boy is this week going by slowly! Last night I got my exercise on, so I don’t have any new tales to tell (gotta detox-to-retox). But tonight I’m attending 2 bars around town and seeing some live music, so expect a more thorough update tomorrow.

Seeing as this week is building in anticipation for Halloween weekend, I thought I’d advertise some fun events happening around town this week. Of course I can’t hit them all, so you’ll have to tell me what was fun and what was a time waster. Input is greatly appreciated!

On Thursday, Echo Park Jazz is doing another session in their 826LA benefit series. It all goes down at 9pm tomorrow at Lot 1 Cafe (on Sunset). Find the event on their facebook page for details.

To get your fright on, check out Delusion. It’s an interactive guided story that is more like a play than a haunted house. Tickets are $40 on their website (which is pricy for me) but if you love a good scare and you’re sick of the Knottsberry/Universal Horror scene, it could be worth a visit. I have a friend going tonight and Ill have to relay her experience.


Goldstar is offering a deal on Queen Mary ‘s Halloween Tour with Haunted Mazes. $17 and it’s from 7p-midnight with Thursday, Sunday and Monday tickets still available.

While we are on the subject of this Halloween, I need to bring it up again because it sounds awesome: Drink + Hunt LA. $25 to participate if you join through Thrillist. It’s happening on Saturday in Santa Monica and includes 3 beers and specials as well as an after-party. Start assembling your team now and get your costumes ready!

Ronna & Beverly

If you hate all things Halloween and are looking for a good laugh instead of a scare, I have to recommend the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre this weekend. On Friday one of my favorite comedy duos is performing: Ronna & Beverly. Ronna & Beverly are two female comedians portraying their Jewish mothers and it is always a good show. They usually have 2 celebrity guests and this month it’s Ken Marino (The State, Party Down) and Eliza Coupe (Happy Endings). They interview the guests about their love life and make them squirm, which is amazing to see. For $10, it’s totally worth it. Get tickets HERE before they run out!
