It’s the most horrible time of the year! TAX TIME. Even if you don’t owe anything to Uncle Sam or your state, you still have had to slog through the time-sucking and brain-frying experience of doing your taxes. And I don’t care if you used software, hired a tax prep specialist, or managed to do it yourself the old fashioned way: taxes suck. You survived (or are surviving, taxes are due Monday!), and you deserve to treat yourself to something SPECTACULAR. Here’s a list of events to suit your tax return that will help you have a fabulous “me day.”
Have you checked out your local baseball franchise lately? Not only is it early enough in the season that the games are still offering insights into the games to come, but unless your local team is one of the “BIG ONES” playing another “BIG ONE” you can nab tickets for cheap. So cheap, in fact, that you could probably treat the whole family to the greatest of American pastimes: a day at the ballpark. Hell, you can even catch the pinstripers in some match ups for as little as $14* a pop! Find tickets to see your hometown heroes here.
Speaking of family-friendly activities, you can catch Disney On Ice when your favorite cast members skate into an area near you for well under $100 a pop. Most tickets on the TicketNetwork.com exchange sit between $20 and $40 apiece*, even for the in-demand Disney On Ice: Frozen series.
Take your tax return and turn it into laughs! Many comedians currently touring the U.S. have seats available for under $100 each, including stars like Kathy Griffin, Jim Gaffigan, Lisa Lampanelli, Lewis Black, and more! Check ’em out and get the last laugh on the government.
Virtually any musician or band that you want to see this summer – festivals notwithstanding – is within your reach on the TicketNetwork.com exchange. From Coldplay to Guns N’ Roses, Justin Bieber to Beyonce, The Boss, and even the golden-voiced Goddess herself, Adele, have tickets you can nab for under $500. Take that tax return and turn it into a memorable night seeing your favorite star live!
With this much tax return moolah burning a hole in your pocket, you can nail down a ticket to the hottest show on Broadway, Hamilton. While the show will be hitting the road and branching out to L.A. soon, you know you want to see writer-director-star Lin Manuel Miranda doing what he does best in person on Broadway.
You can also nab venue passes to Copa America, floor seats for Adele, or tickets to the Stanley Cup Finals. Whoever you HAVE to see once in this lifetime is within your grasp with a tax return so sweet as that.
If you’ve managed to wrangle a return to be reckoned with, live the “bigger is better” life, and want to make your year memorable, you can snag tickets to Super Bowl 51 in Houston, Texas on February 5, 2017.
