What would you do on a $5,000 date?
Why burn $5,000 when you could blow it on a date.
This #burn #bank has been trending in #yyc lately and the uproar around lighting a few G’s on fire is insane.
54% of AMP 90.3 listeners, a hot local radio station, voted in favour of burning $5,000. I’m not going to chime in on my feelings on the matter (however there are manycharitable causes that could have done good with this) but seeing as I am in the business of planning dates I felt inspired to write about a couple “baller” dates (other ridiculous wastes of money) you could have taken with the now incinerated five thousand dollars.
The Baller Date
#1. Poppin Bottles
You pick up your date in a stretch limo with Dom on ice. ($800) She has no idea where you are headed and is shamefully underdressed. Head to Holt and let your stylist jump in for a quick costume change and ‘coiffing’. You get a matching pocket square to your dates new DVF dress, Louboutin pumps and Kate Spade clutch ($2000). Roll up toRaw Bar at Hotel Arts for a few pre-dinner cocktails, ($100) have the valet hold your limo outside ($100 tip). All these cocktails are going to your head-time to eat. Your reservation is waiting at Teatro’s-maybe the most romantic (and baller approved) date restaurant in Calgary. Feast on The Eight Course Chef’s Tasting Menu and pop open a bottle of Chateau Neuf de something (extra dusty down in that wine cellar so it’s twice as expensive) to sip on. Your date hates red wine but drinks Chambord martinis like a champ- and you wrap it up with some chocolate something that took a small army to create ($900). Benson (probably your limo drivers name or you paid him to not correct you), is waiting with a fresh bottle of bubbles and you’re just in time to strut to Standard to let your lady show off those new red soles while sitting pretty in your VIP booth. Call in some friends, order up them bottles ($1,100) and you’ve got yourself a baller after party to a baller date (A cool 5K).
#2. Baller in the Rockies
Take your baller status to the next level in Banff. It ain’t Aspen but you can rock that fur vest with only minimal scoffs. Get your Range Rover detailed before you hit the road ($200). The destination is The Fairmont Banff Springs for a two-night escape in a luxury suite ($1,500). Book a couples massage and a day at the spa– the perfect relaxation day for two ($300). Wifey needs something a little extra for that forehead wrinkle ($600) and the after care moisturizer is made from glacier water and magic crystals- you’re afraid what will happen if you say no ($300). Lunch in the spa with sparkling water and Pinot Gris ($250). Take a private helicopter excursion for a killer view of the alpine and vast glaciers and just to kill a couple hours ($650). Fondue dinner at The Grizzly House ($350). Old school cocktails and some top shelf scotch in the Rundle Lounge for a nightcap ($200). Banana bread French toast and mimosas for brunch at The Maple Leaf ($150). A guided ski –do tour in the back country ($500) in his and her snowsuits ($500).
Baller on the slopes, handled ($5,000).
Well, they aren’t stopping here… $10,000 is up for #burn or #bank debate- Calgary will decide. Get your votes in, I’ll start planning the 10K date. I’m feeling tropical.
