Most likely a movie $25

Second choice, concert, but I am selective about who I go see. $100

Concert.

By "maximum amount" are you talking about just the ticket price? Or the total wall to wall cost of attending, including transportation, meals, and incidentals?

$15 for the ticket, $17.82 for everything else.

3) Sporting event. Many are free (I go to marathons, triathlons, etc --- have a marathon I officiate at Sat - and there's a regatta Sunday that I'll bike down too) - where as other events like drag racing or baseball/football games or boxing are like $20 plus tickets (arena football) and add another $10-$15 in food/beverages I guess.

1 - Move - 40$ for 2
2 - night in with some wine and my fiance - 50$ (I know it wasn't an option but I don't do clubs often, this is my party scene)

If...and I mean IF...I plan on going to a club, its usually a 200$ night. Hence why I don't do it often.

None of the above. I'd rather ride singletrack. That said, probably 1 @ the drive-thru, unless a really cool band I wanted to see was in town or a show I wanted to see was around. US$12, plus the concessions food is tasty.

I wouldn't. None of these types of things appeal to me.

I'd go to a bar with live music, pay a $10 cover. Not sure if you'd consider this a concert or dance club, depending on where I go it might be a cover band with a dance party

First choice would be a sporting event, so long as I can define "sporting event" as "bike ride with friends". I'd pay $40-50 (gas money to get there, bridge toll, maybe lunch).

If that doesn't work, I'd go see a good movie for $10, so long as the theatre is clean, the patrons are quiet and sans children/cell phones, and the theatre doesn't stick TV commercials before the movie or subscribe to the "louder is better" mantra when it comes to the sound system.

I didn't think of that. I figured by "sporting event" a professional level game was implied. Obviously that wasn't wise.

I'd go for a ride, spending up to $30. Or I might go to a shooting match and spend up to $40. Though I have spent upwards of $1000 to attend (and participate in) a shooting match.

The bottom line is that I don't much care for passive entertainment. TV, movies, concerts, professional sporting events, etc. are passive entertainment. I also don't care for dance clubs - too crowded, too noisy, too chaotic. I much prefer active stuff or reading.

Normally I would say sports event (FSU football!), but the preggo wife couldn't take 3 hours on bleachers.
