It costs me 430$ and we're allowed up to 30 ppl. So the more ppl who play, the less each person pays. Deposit is half that amount (on my credit card), so you people better pay up! I am a poor student.
So, why don't we all set aside $30 for laser quest.
If everyone goes, whoopie, you get one extra drank than you expected and if a few people don't go you aren't left short a few bucks and DTG isn't left out for her kindness. it'll be about $21 per person if all ~20 people actually go (unlikely!). If 15 people go, it's $28 per person. If we all set it aside now, there won't be any surprises the day of.
PS: Sunday: Malachy, Chron and I will probably go see Totem(Cirque du soleil) at 5pm. Others are welcome to join, but everyone has to buy their own ticket. Lowest ticket price is 70$.
Gotta love expensive shit!
So, for those first timers, here's a breakdown of my "spending money" budget (excludes travel, hotel and drinks because all of those are totally individual to you)
3 day subway/bus pass: $16.00
Laser Quest: $30
Bike riding thing: $10
Food: $75 ($10-15 a meal at 2 meals a day)
buying cheap random frenchie crap: $30
Drinks: individual mileage may vary! I like me some mixed drinks but I'm also a lightweight so I'm not putting that much away for dranking, but you can easily (oh so easily) burn through $100 in alcohol if you're a high class twerp bordering on alcoholism. Also, LIQUOR STORES CLOSE EARLY AS FUCK IN MONTREAL. GET UP EARLY IF YOU PLAN ON FILLING A FLASK FOR A NIGHT OF DEBAUCHERY.
So my spending money: ~$250
So, like Pox said right off the bat, expect to bring about $200. It looks like a lot but you need to eat, drink and do stuff for 3 days.
And if you plan on using a visa/mastercard - tell your bank or CC company about your trip before hand! There is no fun to be had if their fraud squad cancels the card Friday morning when you use it at Tim Hortons in Montreal when your last purchase was in Vancouver or Philadelphia.
