I’m throwing caution to the wind here, say I’ve got an extra ten thousand dollars just burning a hole in my pocket. I could do what a sane minded person would do and say, pay bills, invest it, put it in savings maybe even donate it to one of my favorite charities. But all those are, boring! I want to live a little, have some fun, take risks after all you can’t win if you don’t play right? Here are my top five ideas for blowing $10,000.

  • Buy Ten Thousand Lottery Tickets

    I could do like Washington Wizards forward Chris Singleton did the last time the Mega Millions lottery was up to 500 million dollars. Singleton bought ten thousand lottery tickets. I would only buy $5,000 worth of lottery tickets. By the way, Singleton did tell reporters "it was a good investment that didn't pan out."

  • A Trip to Las Vegas and One Hamburger

    Lets Fly to Las Vegas and split a $5,000 per burger at the Fleur de Lys restaurant in the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Round trip airfare on American Airlines round-trip $1,000, overnight hotel accommodations at the Mandalay Bay $1,000. Leaving $3,000 for the one armed bandits.

    The $5,000 burger is made with 100% Kobe beef imported from Japan, topped with a slab of foie gras, black truffle, and truffle sauce served on a brioche truffle bun. Wash the burger down with a bottle of Chateau Petrus 1995 which retails for $5,000.

    Total trip cost just under under $10,000.

  • Take up to 25 Family and Friends on a Cruise

    I did the math for the "Rudy Cruise" and at $679 per person that gets 14 family and friends on a seven day cruise Sept 7th-14th 2014. Of course the alcohol, souvenirs and commemorative matching BFF tattoos are not included in the price.

  • Buy a New Smile

    I've heard that people with good teeth and a winning smile tend to make more money. That said I'm wanting a new smile and at my dentists current prices of $1,200.00 per tooth for porcelain caps, I'll have to pick my favorite eight teeth I want capped. Afterwards, I should have just enough money left over to buy some whitening toothpaste and a new toothbrush.

  • Finding Lady Luck at the Craps Table

    If lady luck is on my side I say we lay down ten one thousand dollar bets, or 20 $500.00 bets. Nonetheless, It's time I hit the casino's in search of Lady Luck. Besides the last time I was at a Winstar, they kept giving me the free seniors all-you-can eat buffet coupons.
