Lots of sports to see with friends in Flint this weekend the inexpensive way

If you are like most people, your pocket book is a lot lighter now than it was a month ago.  Yet you still want to have a good time with your friends this weekend and watch some games together while saving a few bucks.  If you are looking to catch a good hockey game or two, check out the Flint Generals as they have back-to-back games this weekend on their home ice at Perani Arena & Event Center located at 3501 Lapeer Road in Flint.  The Generals feature former National Hockey League player Brian Smolinski.  Catch Brian and the Generals on Saturday at 7:30 pm. and Sunday 4:00 pm.  Tickets start at $5.00 each.  For more ticket information call 810-744-0222.

If you and your friends are looking to watch some college football on Saturday, check out Sharky's Sports Bar on 4050 South Center Road in Burton.  With five bowl games featured on Saturday, you are sure to catch all the game action on any of the 17 large screen and 10 HD big screens.  Economy size drinks are only $2.95.  Lunch specials start at $5.99.  You have a great place to enjoy the company of your friends, watch some football, and all for possibly less than $10.00.

Another way for you to have a great time without costing you too much is to use those gift cards you received as gifts at Christmas.  Even if they are gift cards to restaurants, most restaurants have an area with televisions such as Applebee's on Miller Road in Flint.  This way you can still catch your games, eat some good food, have a great time with your friends, and for not much if any cost at all.

Use these ideas and you are sure to have a great weekend with your friends, without an even lighter pocket book.
