    I've always heard "what would you do with $1 Million dollars?", but what about if you were given exactly $47,221.09? :D ohhh and watch the attached picture..... that's why the Thread is called this!:):D

    and in my case I would actually do:

    $35,000 dollars on a 2010 BMW 3 series car or 1 series.

    $10,000 for other such as paying off for college due to UC regents raising tuition prices to 32%.....:p

    $2,200 to go to an Apple Store Shopping Spree!!!!!....:p

    $remaning money....waste it on Taco Bell or Food...

    Someone actually spent that much at one of the most bland restaurant in all of NY?

    I would buy $47,221.09 worth of fuzzy kittens. And then I would roll on their fluffiness.

    Well, in all fairness, $35,425 of the $36,641 before tax portion of the bill was for alcohol, so they really didn't spend that much on actual food (at least in comparison to the alcohol tab).

    I'd probably use the $47k as a down payment for a house or possibly to pay for graduate school.

    That's a lot of booze :eek:

    If I fell into that kind of money, I'd donate $5000 to my favorite charity (a summer camp that I volunteer with), keep $5000 to buy some toys with (a nice huge LED TV sounds like fun), put $5000 into my retirement savings, then pay off my line of credit (about $15,000) and pay down my mortgage (both of which will result in net savings in the future).

    $47,221.09 already includes 9 cents. How many more cents am I getting?

    I wouldn't spend it in a single ****ing restaurant I can tell you that much right now.

    I'd pay off the rest of my debts, Buy a new car, and then I'd spend the rest on a weekend of hookers and coke.

    ...Did I just say that out loud?

    10% to charity; a third or so of the rest to the tax man :)(); 10% of the rest to buy stuff I wanted (new MBP, here I come!); save/invest what's left.

    i saw this story last month. Apparently that russian's rep said its not his bill and his bill was "only" around $2000. Whatever.


    concerning that much money...I would probably spend $750 ish or so on one night at one of the nearby night clubs and then take the rest and put in the bank where I can then earn about $15ish/month in interest and I can put that towards my gas bills.

    Few options

    1. Put towards opening up my own freakin eatery. Where the bench seats are made out of towels so all the patrons can jsut wipe their hands on the seats! And we will serve BBQ sauce and honey mustard with every single dish.
    Styles of cuisine include: italian, bbq stuff, cheesecakes, and tons of whiskeys. also a mashed potatoe bar and a sandwich bar.

    2. Start my own photo studio.

    3. Squander it on a bunch of inedible, but still awesome stuff: Custom huge trampoline for the park near my apartment, more lenses, a cell phone that can do stuff besides make calls and type texts, some fancy art for the walls, a new apartment.

    Making the seats dirty would likely make my pants dirty at the end of the meal. Not a very well thought out plan.

    Just make the tablecloth overhang by a bit extra on all sides and we'll wipe our hands on that. :D
