Romantic candle-lit dinner for two: $100
Spending Valentine's Day with James Marsters: Priceless?
Actually, a price has been set for that particular enjoyment, naughty as it may be. For $195 dollars you can make your (read: my) dreams come true. Valentine's Day with Spike. This is not a joke.
The South Orange Performing Arts Center (SOPAC) in New Jersey is hosting, James Marsters: Your Funny Valentine, on February 15. It's all James, all day. Mind you, the $195 is only for regular admission, for $225 you're a VIP (closer seating). Guess what? All 150 available tickets are sold out. Besides spending time with this handsome man, here's what the lucky few can expect:
- Exclusive theatrical performance
- Signed souvenir from Dragonball
- Personalised autograph
- Q&A with James
- Photo session (with professional event photographer)
- Acoustic concert
- Free raffle for exclusive goods
Crazy? Yes. Completely original and amazing? Absolutely. He really needs to give his manager a raise for coming up with this one. Forgetting the extra VIP price, with just regular admission he's making around $30,000 for a days work. And when I say work I mean, having women scream your name and paw at you all day.
I actually heard about the event a while ago but it was too rich for my blood. However, I just found out a limited number of seats have been released for the evening concert portion of the event and tickets are only $20! I may have to go. If for nothing else, just so I can tell people I spent Valentine's Day with Spike.
Now please, let me leave you with one of my favorite quotes from Buffy, spoken by Spike of course: "Real love isn't brains, children. It's blood. It's blood screaming inside you to work its will. I may be love's bitch, but at least I'm man enough to admit it."
