Sporting events. Being from Pa, I've got the Pirates and the Penguins locally. Ticket prices aren't terrible but it's the food. $7.50+ for a beer, $4.00 for a SMALL cup of fries or a thing of nachos, $3.50 for a bag of peanuts. My fiance has been taking me to Penguins games for my birthday the past couple seasons and, not including the tickets, we'll easily spend $25-$40 on a couple drinks and something to eat.
