Best Friday Nights for Broke Blokes

Your mates are in town for the weekend and they're thinking Friday night is party night. But the car has just about drowned your savings, there’s a pile of bills waiting to be settled and pay day is a good week away. What can a broke bloke do to have a good time?

The great (free) outdoors

Road trip! Grab your fishing gear and head down to the coast or the river with a couple of deck chairs and an esky full of tinnies. Throw in a few crab or prawn nets for a great night, especially if they are biting. Then enjoy a free feed and the chance to kick back, relax and chew the fat.

Join the board revolution

The humble (and pretty cheap – especially when you pick one up second-hand) board game is having a revival. Pick someone's house and choose a game, from an oldie like Scrabble, Trivial Pursuit or Battleship to one of the hundreds of new board games that have been released in the past few years. Game of Thrones is just the beginning.

Get your game on

Your own Xbox or PlayStation is free entertainment. So is Friday night sport on TV. Tell your mates to pick up some beers, grab a couple of pizzas and settle in for some cheap entertainment that's got the lot. What could be better?

Go clubbing on the cheap

Check out your local RSL, bowls club or yacht club where there's often cheap beers and meals, and with bowls there’s at least some guaranteed action. Like the cards? Find your nearest free poker night – they're held all over Australia – where the only thing at stake is your pride. Keep it simple and you'll find that the best boys night out happen for little more than the cost of a takeaway pizza and beer.
