The Experiment Ends: Yup, We Go Out A Lot

So last week the "document going out for a month" experiment came to an official conclusion. The documentation turned out to be actually quite pleasant, so we're considering continuously adding to that, creating new pages as some sort of archive. To what end? None really, but there's some sense of comfort in closing the night by adding an entry to the list for posterity.

We've moved the final list for the experiment (plus the last week of September) here. So how were the results? We started on the 21st of August, and counted only dates until the 21st of September. Here are the raw numbers:

# Nights: 32
# Events: 47
Weekend Events: 25
Non-music Events: 14
$ Spent: $46

As noted in the original comments, money wasn't much of a concern here, although it was interesting to note how low the expenditure turned out to be. That was a minor observation however. The biggest thing of note was how much we go out, averaging well over one event per day. Really, there is no such thing as a "quiet night at home." Weekends, usually a time of rest, are instead a time to kick it into high gear, with more packed schedules than during the week. It's absolute insanity, but it's an insanity we love, so we are hardly complaining.

In conclusion, we're glad we did it, we're glad we shared the list with you readers (we love y'all!), and we're glad that some of you have commented on the list occasionally. Good to know we don't write in a vacuum.


  • wow. you were busy and did a ton of stuff for free. any calculation of the actual retail price of the month's activities?

  • i'll take a stab at coming up with that number. i'm thinking for future additions to the list that's a good extra data point to have.
