I took a few days off of work last week to celebrate my birthday (more on some of this later -- I am still processing everything that happened, and trying to figure out what to write and what NOT to write). The boyfriend and I tried to pack as much fun in our week as possible, and we landed AWESOME Dodger tickets via ScoreBig.com (ScoreBig.com has an easy-to-use service -- just go to their website, find the sports/theatre/concert event you want to attend, figure out a date that works with your schedule, find seats that look appealing, and make a bid on what you are willing to pay). It took all of 5 minutes to land a great deal on super loge seats (ok, I low-balled on my first bid -- a girl has to try -- my first offer wasn't accepted, but after I increased my bid by $5 my second bid was accepted). WHEE! And we randomly happened to attend a Dodger game the night they gave out free bobbleheads. Yay!
Do you like going to sports events? Truth be told, sports are NOT my thing, but I like going to the occasional game -- mostly for the food and the people-watching. It makes it even more fun to attend on a summer night when heat has cooled a bit, when you happen to have seats next to really nice people that share their peanuts (!), all the while the team you are rooting for is #1 and on a roll. Nice!
A big thank you to ScoreBig.com for the easy easy easy process, and for the amazing deal on tickets. I can't wait to use the service again. :)
