Dave Jensen: 6 Things I Would Do If I Won $10,000
What, oh what, would I do with ten grand? Of course, I cannot play 'Spring Into Cash' on RETRO 102.5, I can certainly dream about spending it.
We're excited at RETRO 102.5 to be giving Northern Colorado listeners the chance to drop everything and start thinking about what they are going to do with the $10.000 they just won.
Let's get a couple of things out of the way when it comes to how I would spend that money: I have debt that $10,000 would certainly take care of, and putting $10,000 down on a house is also prudent. However, this is about having a good time spending a windfall.
So, I sat down with myself, and wrote down the things/experiences I'd like to do if I was handed a free $10,000:
A CLOTHING SHOPPING SPREE IN LOVELAND - $1,000
I would first stop in at Jos. A Bank at the Promenade Shops at Centerra, spending up to $700 on some really nice clothes. No offense to Kohl's, but I need an upgrade.
The second stop in Loveland would be Downtown at Rooster Browns; they're a store that's like if Nick Offerman ran a men's merchandise store, this would be it. I could easily drop $300 in there.
NEW SPEAKERS FROM HARMS LABS IN FORT COLLINS - $1,000
This would be 'just what the doctor ordered' when it comes to my ongoing struggle of finding a way to have great audio in my apartment. I currently use a JBL Bluetooth speaker; it's fine but it's not 'FINE.' Harms Labs has been around for over 40 years in Fort Collins, now in Old Town Square, and has introduced a new Bluetooth 'Tower' speaker system which sounds perfect for me.
I don't know how much it would cost, I don't know if I even need a pair or just one, but I'm going to set aside $1,000 to 'annoy the neighbors.'
WEEKEND GETAWAY TO COLORADO'S 'BACHELOR GULCH' - $1,000
If money were no object I think I'd go for a whole week at Bachelor Gulch, but even $10,000 is not nearly enough for that. Two nights at a Ritz-Carlton in Colorado, in the Rocky Mountains, with somebody calling me 'Mr. Jensen' will be fine. I'll have a big poker game; I'll call in some friends. They can stay down the hill.
A YEAR'S WORTH OF SILVER GRILL CINNAMON ROLLS - $2,000
Life is short, have a cinnamon roll. Every day. I'd stop into Silver Grill Cafe every morning for a giant cinnamon roll and a coffee. Two coffees if there are two of us. One roll will be fine for two, however. Giant rolls.
A VIEWING PARTY FOR 'TOP GUN: MAVERICK' AT CINEMARK BISTRO - $2,000
By the time the Top Gun sequel comes out, we should be in much better shape for me to rent out a theater at the Cinemark Bistro to watch it. If that doesn't cost $2,000, I'll rent a super sports car for the night. 'Hollywood' style.
A $3,000 TRIP TO HAWAII - $3,000
I know $3,000 isn't a whole lot when it comes to a trip to Hawaii, but that's the budget. I've never been, and it's on my bucket list. I have no 'gotta see' list for Hawaii; you could set the plane down, throw a lei around my neck, show me a palm tree, and say 'There, Hawaii. Goodbye.'
What will YOU do with $10,000? Listen and play "Spring Into Cash" with RETRO 102.5!
