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 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 February 2020 issue of Preview 918.

The Team: Dawna Wright

My husband and I decided to do a couple’s weekend, and we got to do some things we wouldn’t normally do thanks to Preview 918.

Stop #1: We started the challenge at Flo’s Burger Diner in Tulsa. I had the classic deluxe cheeseburger while my husband, Tim, enjoyed his favorite barbecue bacon cheddar burger. We love to sit at our favorite table and enjoy the classic ‘50s music playing.
Cost: $20

Stop #2: With plenty of food in our stomachs, we headed to the Tulsa Air and Space Museum and Planetarium. Tim got on an airplane for the first time, and that was only because it had no engine and was bolted to the ground. We flew in a hot air balloon simulator and crashed. In the gift shop, Tim bought an astronaut ice cream sandwich, and I got a 3D magnet (for the fridge collection) and a Route 66 keychain.
Cost: $45

Stop #3: For our last stop, we went to the Tulsa Zoo. We lucked out, as it was a beautiful day and half-price admission. We love to see the chimpanzees, and we got there right before feeding time, so they were chattering and chattering. After purchasing a train ticket, we had lunch at the Macaw Landing Grille. We came home with a souvenir cup that has pink flamingos on it.
Cost: $23
