...buying tickets to see Blue Man Group for the eighth time (four stage shows, four tour shows).
I could have bought seventh row for $75 a ticket (plus another $15 in taxes and other charges), but opted instead to go for the front row on the side at roughly half-court for $50 each. I decided it wasn't worth another fifty bucks to be in a crowd, looking up the whole time, with less access to beer and people on all sides. Here I can put my beer on the hockey wall and take a picture of a Blue Man when they walk by into the crowd. :)
