Anniversary Adventure

Darlin Dan and I are celebrating our 8th anniversary this weekend in downtown San Antonio.  We decided to enjoy our own beautiful city by staying downtown at the Hyatt Regency on the Riverwalk. We were able to get a beautiful room using our timeshare points and a little cash. We are spending Friday night and Saturday on the Riverwalk.

We started our anniversary adventure by taking the city bus into downtown San Antonio. When I discovered it was going to cost us about $48 to park our car downtown for 2 days, I  almost flipped. Darlin Dan is fond of public transportation, so riding the Via city bus is no problem for him. We left our house about 4 pm and got to our hotel about 5:30.  It cost us $1.40 each to ride the bus.

We went to the Comedy Club tonight. I was able to get a $25 gift certificate from for $2!! We ended up paying $5 cash for the total(2 $15 tickets), not bad!!  It was great. They had a total of 4 comedians and it lasted from 8:30 to 10:15.  It was very worth the $7 we spent for the tickets!

Look what we passed while we were walking to the River Center Mall... The ALAMO!

We ate a fast dinner at the River Center Mall food court. We paid a total of $12 for our dinner. It wasn't very romantic, but it was very entertaining.  Lots of people watching.

So our total cash OOP today:
$2.80 bus ride downtown
$5 for the rest of comedy club tickets
$12 dinner
I mentioned to Darlin Dan that we should see how little we could spend this weekend, and he wasn't too thrilled. So I'm compromising. I'm sure we won't break the bank ( he just doesn't want to admit that he's pretty frugal too!).

When we got back to our room after the comedy club, we had a bottle of wine and a plate of snacks waiting. I mentioned it was our anniversary and the front desk promptly ordered us complimentary wine.....priceless!!

Sounds wonderful. Have a great time. San Antonio is where my hubby would like us to vaca next year. He is a huge history buff.
