I don’t have to tell you. You can that your dollar just doesn’t get you as much as it used to anymore. Well, CrabzInaBarrel is going to tell you exactly how to make the dollar stretch and still have a good time.

Cheap Movies: Skip the movies and check out an outdoor movie festival in your area. They’re usually fun and free. Bring a blanket and your own snacks, and you’ve got a cheap fun for everyone. If you’re in the DMV area Crystal City check out Crystal Screen every Monday at Sunset showing the classic action movies from now until October 20th. Click here for details.

Free Movies: If you must see the new movie, why not try a movie site like, where you can see new TV shows and movies for nada. With a great selection of movies and shows, it won’t be long before the Feds shut it down so enjoy it while you can.

Event: Want a night out on the town for FREE? Why not check out two of the hottest to rappers in the DMV right now. Phil Ade & RAtheMC “He Said, She Said” Live performance tonight, Aug. 28, 09 at Palace Five (2220 14th St. NW, Washington DC)

The Arts: Want to seem cultured to your new boo? Well, DC has a great selection of free museums to take advantage of. The Corcoran Gallery of Art is also ditching the admission fee for Saturday’s until Labor Day, so take advantage of it before it’s gone for more info click here.

Free drinks?? Wine is the old school get right. Many wine shops and small eateries have wine tastings once a week. The Tivoli in Ballston, VA near to my job has one every Friday. Plus you can get great bottle of wine for less than $10!

Cheap drinks?? Local bars, restaurants and pubs are always coming up with promotions to bring in customers, so don’t be afraid to take full advantage. Rock Bottom Grill, also in Ballston, has $2 pints of handcrafted, fresh brewed beer on Wednesday nights. It makes me sad I don’t drink beer every week. Since we don’t condone drinking and driving it’s worth noting that oth locations are Metro accessible, so you can drink then sober up on the Metro.

Adult Swim: On Sundays Capitol Skyline Hotel Pool offers (10 Eye Street, SW). That $10 get you a relaxing dip in the pool and burgers. Yummy. (via DCFab)
