There are plenty of restaurants in your area that offer more than just pizza or a burger.

If you are spending your time at home alone playing on FaceBook, take a step outside, go have coffee, and play on your computer at the nearby Internet café. You will be out of the house, have the chance to mingle with others and maybe even find something more interesting to do while you’re out. Internet cafes are notorious for hosting local bands and art events. They often use social media websites to post calendars for their upcoming performances and events.

3. See a Concert or Play

Find out what concerts or plays are in your town and purchase tickets. You can find last minute tickets as well as purchase them well in advance. If you live near a park, you might even find some listings for free theater nights or plays in the park that offer free admission.

4. See a Movie

Movie theaters are everywhere and when you are bored and low on cash, it is a great way to spend an afternoon. Find a new listing for a movie that is playing and go see it alone or ask a friend to come along.
