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 as 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 December 2018 issue of Preview 918.

The Team: Karla Martinez

Stop #1: Our family of four started the day with lunch at Mondo’s Ristorante Italian on Brookside. It was delicious from the mozzarella sticks to the baked rigatoni and pizza. It was our first time there, and we will definitely go back.
Cost: $50

Stop #2: Next, we headed downtown and visited The Boxyard. My favorite store was Okie Dokie. We picked up some Oklahoma knickknacks.
Cost: $25

Stop #3: We visited Boomtown Tees next and got some Oklahoma shirts.
Cost: $10

Stop #4: We ended our day with some ice cream from Rose Rock Microcreamery at The Boxyard. We had to take advantage of the warm winter day.
Cost: $8
