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 April 2019 issue of Preview 918.

The Team: Jennette and John Walker

Stop #1: For our first stop, John and I went to Yokozuna in south Tulsa. I got the General Tso’s chicken. It was delicious. John got the Hot Mess sushi rolls and ordered sake for the first time. He loved it. When we were finished eating, the waitress brought our bill along with a postcard (which was pretty cool) and our fortune cookies. My fortune said, “Play rock, paper, scissors for a chance to win a shot of sake.” I played with my waitress and won. The waitress was nice. Their portions were significant too. We will be going back.
Cost: $46.05

Stop #2: Then we headed over to Got Wood in Jenks. This place was excellent and the guys were excellent. They showed us different techniques on how to throw the ax, knives, Chinese star and so on. We went Sunday, so it was cheaper — $15 a person. We plan on coming back real soon.
Cost: $32.20

Stop #3: Last, we walked down the street to Rustic Gate Creamery. It was a cute little place. The manager let us try whatever we wanted and told us what was popular. I ended up getting The Superman, which is lemon, strawberry and bubblegum. It sounds a little odd, but it was awesome. John got the raspberry chip cheesecake. We sat outside while we enjoyed the ice cream. Lucky for us the weather was great.
Cost: $7.35

Thank you so much for the opportunity. We had a great time trying new things and seeing more of Tulsa and Jenks.
