The Mission: So providing an envelope of cash and telling people to spend it in 48 hours isn’t exactly a challenge, but it makes this assignment sound a lot more interesting. Spend $91.80 (we used the local area code for the amount) in two days. And if they could find fun and free activities ... bonus. The only catch was that they had to spend it at places, events or shops profiled in the June 2018 issue of Preview 918.

The Team: Dana and James Whittaker

Stop #1: We stopped by the LandShark Pool and Bar at River Spirit Casino Resort for a taste of the mixed drinks and cold beer. The margaritas were delicious and hit the spot on a hot Memorial Day. The DJ was perfect and we look forward to going again.
Cost: $17.34

Stop #2: The classic Olé queso and sopes were our choice of appetizers at Café Ole, and since the Tecates are $2 on Tuesdays, we decided to indulge. The queso was creamy with the right hint of spice. Our mouths watered with the chicken tinga and the albondiga meatball sopes. The flavors were spot on. Can’t wait to go back and try the other dishes.
Cost: $27.33

Stop #3: Before dinner, we dropped by to check out Dwelling Spaces at The Boxyard downtown. We grabbed an awesome button pin, and enjoyed all the cool T-shirts, coffee mugs and artwork. Great place to bring your out-of-town family and guests for some Oklahoma pride.
Cost: $10.80

Stop #4: While at The Boxyard, we couldn’t pass up the chance to try one of the newer restaurants downtown, Sabores. With great margaritas, mixed drinks and salsa, we were satisfied with the Taquitos Dorados with their rich flavor and crunch. From the tacos to the soups, Sabores offers a lot of variety with a great atmosphere.
Cost: $36.33
