Butler’s Price is Right

It was a whirlwind of a day. I had planned on going for a run, eating a quiet dinner, and then doing some homework before going to bed. All of that changed when a friend of mine offered me tickets to “The Price is Right Live” which was being hosted at Clowes Hall.

So I wolfed down a quick dinner, and got in line an hour and a half early with my friends in order to register our seats for the possibility of being selected to go down and have our chance at winning. Unfortunately, I was never selected to go down. It turns out that three, count ‘em THREE other Andrew’s were called down. Each time I felt like I had choked on my own stomach.

It was a generally quiet game until one Butler student won a trip to Las Vegas! The crowd went wild, she went wild, but I’m still a bit skeptical. How can a trip of that magintude only cost around $1200? Perhaps the flight wasn’t included, or perhaps it’s more of a hostel than a hotel that she’s staying at. In either case, I was jealous along with the rest of the crowd.

    Haha, that is hysterical that they called that many Andrews. Sorry you didn’t get on. Yeah, so Austin is right about Vegas. It is super cheap to go because they know most people are going to spend all their money gambling. I used to go there for work and the rooms are usually only $150 night and flights are around $300. It’s pretty easy to get people there for cheap. Whenever I’ve been, I’ve spent all my money on food and cool shows (not Celine Dion though). haha.

    Thanks! Haven’t had the opportunity to go out to Las Vegas. Now that seems much more realizable.

    She’s actually staying at one of the really nice hotels in Vegas, and it’s only a 3 night / 4 day trip. You can actually get to Vegas, stay in a really nice hotel, and fly there and back cheaper than $1200. You’d be surprised. I know this because I like to travel a lot.
