I've been to a few of these things and they're always very good. If you can scrape together the double sawbuck and a fin, do it. If you can scrape together more, then do more scraping.
Also, October 6 is also the day AFTER my birthday. So if you were planning on getting me anything (and I know you all were!), give it to the food bank instead. They need it w-a-a-a-a-a-y more than I do.
