We did see Hamilton in SF. It was just OK. Certainly seen much better for less.

Cheers.
You can definitely see Broadway shows for cheaper than $1000! I got tickets to see Frozen in May. I bought orchestra seats the day they went on sale and paid $330 total for 2 tickets. Brand new Broadway show for less than $1000.

Also, I think the Grand Floridian private dining experience with your own butler is much better than $1000 meal at V&As. We dined at V&As over 11 years ago on our honeymoon and it was great. But with the insane price increase and not being able to use tables in wonderland, I would much rather the private dining experience. We did that for my parents for their 40th wedding anniversary two years ago and they said it was the best meal of their lives. The food and the experience was absolutely amazing. And it only costs around $350 including food, butler service, a bottle of wine and gratuity. Plus it is completely private, no one else is dining with you and you get to watch the MK fireworks.

To note, when I quoted $1000 for a Broadway experience, I was including a high-end meal and transportation into the City.

I found our tickets to for better seats to Come From Away, My Fair Lady, and Hello Dolly for our May NY Theater trip to run mostly in the $150 range, give or take. I spent just over $1000 for the two of us to see three shows over three nights. Jim spent the same on our meals and transportation. I actually had a friend comp the hotel with her FF point, so we only had one trip in/out of the City.

So, a bit under $2k for three shows and 3 dinners. But it was a 25th anniversary trip. Just like V&A is a splurge for special occasions, too. My point was what a *nice* evening out for two could actually cost.

V&A certainly isn't a "Where do want to eat? I don't know, where do you want to eat?" kind of place. (Well, it was for a friend of ours!)

I agree with you that Eagles season tickets are not worth $6,000. But Patriots tickets are worth every penny!

Sorry, I couldn't help myself.
Go Pats! (Though they're not doing so well right now. But it's only Q2, plenty of time to change that.)

That sounds amazing. It's always interesting to see what you can learn poking through the threads.
