Looking for cheap things to do in Calgary? Check out the list that was featured on Breakfast Television this morning. Some are free, others are cheap. Just like some politicians I know 🙂

Wing Night at Joyce on 4th on Monday Nights.
9 cent wings all night!
That means you could get 100 wings for 9 dollars.
Did I mention the half price drinks before 6pm? Cheapest and earliest night out, home in time for the 6pm news.

Free Wine
Tribune Restaurant Wine Wednesday
All you have to do is go down to the restaurant where they have free wine tasting and classic hors d’oeuvres! They even let you sample two types of wine from all over the world.
It’s like Christmas but every Wednesday!

Cheap shows!
Taking Flight Festival of Student Work

March 31st-April 11th
Shows are only $5 each, or you can get $15 for a festival pass. There are 11 different shows, so that works out to $1.60 a show!

Free but fun!
At Costco, you could spend hours weaving in and out of the giant stores aisles. Plus the free samples mean that you could have a whole night out, be full and not have spent a single penny. Other great places to pass the time and not spending money Currie Barracks Farmers Market, Used book stores like the Wee Book Inn and independent video stores like Dogbird Video and Casablanca.
