If you’re looking for something to do this weekend, here are a few ideas for $20 or less. OK, so Silento will be in town, you know, the whip and nae nae guy … tickets to see him are $25, but it’s still a deal. Happy Halloween!

Silento: $25. Sure, this is $5 more than usual, but it’s still a good price for the chance to “whip and nae nae” with its creator. On Friday, Oct. 30, Silento will perform with Liam Lis at the Kingston Armory. Tickets are still on sale and can be purchased through or at the armory.

Pizza and beer: $20. Eat, drink and be merry all for a good cause. From 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 28 head to Teberio’s Pizza & Pub, 59 E. Thomas St. in Wilkes-Barre for some red and white pizza, domestic beer, house wine or soda. Proceeds benefit

Candy’s Place. There will be live entertainment, specialty cocktails, bingo raffles and prizes. For more information, call 570-714-8800.

The show starts at 8 p.m. but you must be 18 years or older to attend. For more information call 570-807-8891.

Penguins hockey: $14. It’s the deal of the week right here. On Oct. 30 get your 50 percent off tickets for the 7:05 p.m. game against Hartford Wolf Pack.
