Is it just me, or does anyone else think that Dh1400 is a ridiculous amount of money to spend on an evening's entertainment?

No, it is not just you. DH1400 is simply greedy.

Anyone have some suggestions for a family with teenagers for New Year's eve? Also, our middle son turns 17 on Dec 30 and we would like to make it a special birthday. His travel birthday memories include being stranded without any belongings after the tsunami in 04. Would appreciate all suggestions. Thanks friends!
