My soon to be new cheap form of entertainment will be going to the hollywood bowl. 6 dollar seats + BYO food/alcohol = FTW

Rotting in front of the tv is fun too, as is WoW/SSB:M, but would like new ideas from ATOT

Masturbation/sex already accounted for

Some good music. Can listen for hours on end if you get the right stuff. Oh, and definitely TV. Get the entire series of a show you haven't seen before, something good. I'd definitely recommend Rome, Invasion and Kenny vs Spenny.

A lot of dates are to the driving range. 7 bucks for an hour of fun. It's like putt-putt but better.

reading a book is a great suggestion, running or working out is good as well (not necessarily entertainment but it is something to do). Something cheap is catching up on movies (james bond series, etc) if you have netflix/blockbuster subscriptions.

board games if you have people around you (I suggest stratego, settlers of catan, and risk 2210). Cooking can be fun and relatively cheap and everyone needs to eat.

Swimming or a pool party.

And check your local city's website normally they have some somewhat fun free stuff.
