Let’s do something for free dollars

If you’re like me, you’re probably trying to save a bunch of money. We all have to pay rent and buy groceries. Such a bother. So I try my best to pinch my pennies whenever I can. I still love going to galleries and museums, but I don’t have the $20 or more to spare for admission.

But lo and behold, I found something to do for free dollars! The Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) has free admission on Wednesday nights after 6 pm. The gallery closes at 8:30 pm on Wednesdays so make sure you get your money’s worth (in this case — zero dollars) by going as close to 6 pm as possible. I aimed to be there for 6 pm, so of course, I was right on time — 6:15 pm …

These are my two handsome friends, Lauren and Liam. Thanks for being my unintentional models.

So if you’re looking for something to do for free dollars, why not stand in front of an impressionist painting and nod your head and say profound things like, “This is what you’d call a large painting,” or “I like this artist’s use of paint and brushes and stuff.” BOOM. Cultured.
