We live near a university. Actually, for you big city people, we live about 45 minutes from a major university. Last year I looked into season tickets for the shows that the university hosts. We save a certain amount every year for eating out or local entertainment. This year I decided to take that budget in a lump sum from savings, replacing it slowly with our regular monthly allowance.
Tonight we are seeing Mannheim Steamroller.
In a "regular" setting, we would never "afford" the tickets.
The University provides the cultural experiences to enhance their students and the community at large.
I am glad they do!
