Our Fantasy Football Draft Party for $7.43 (plus tip)

Close Encounters of the Cheap Kind has a new home at www.CheapEncounters.com!

Hope everyone out there had a good holiday weekend. We celebrated the holiday weekend by having everyone out for our annual fantasy football draft party. We had seven of our ten players at our party, plus a guest who served as our own personal Vanna White (thanks Tim!). All eight of us who were there ate ($106.89 worth), plus we were provided an oversized draft board with player stickers (goes for about $20.00 mail order), six fantasy football magazines (cover price $6.99 each), several Coors Light beer buckets (without the beer), koozies, and keychains.

So what did all of this (value about $170) cost us? $7.43, plus tip. We did the party at Buffalo Wild Wings, and this year they had a deal where they sponsored a limited number of draft parties and provided the draft pack plus $100 free food bill credit. The idea is that most parties will drink several times that in alcohol, but they didn’t realize we are all Mormon!


Ultimately we spent about $30 with the tip – not that the server really deserved the tip she got, but I tend to be lazy and round up on the tip. But even with the tip, it works out to less than $4 a person. Not too shabby!
