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 November issue of Preview.

The Team: Luke and Olivia Fife

Stop #1: Our first stop was a relaxing Saturday afternoon lunch date at Tres Amigos. The staff was very friendly and helpful in deciding what to try from a large selection of delicious Mexican dishes. We absolutely loved the chicken fajita quesadilla. It would be a great place for families, couples or even larger groups; they had space to accommodate all.
Cost: $20.75

Stop #2: We took a walk down Main Street in Jenks to check out Miss McGillicutty’s. We enjoyed seeing each booth and the history behind each antique in the shop. There was a wide variety of decorative items, collectables, coins, jewelry, dishes and more. We found a bargain deal for a set of sugar and creamer dishes.They came as a set for $8 and everything in the booth we picked them from was 50 percent off. We walked away with two beautiful antique dishes for $4.
Cost: $4.34

Stop #3: We also found Lokal and Main, and enjoyed meeting the owner. We picked out a very cute Oklahoma-shaped cookie cutter and a Christmas ornament for our tree to remind us of our $91.80 challenge. There were so many different things that would make for great gifts. We will be back.
Cost: $10.84

Stop #4: The Claret Cafe in Broken Arrow piqued our interest for a Sunday after-church lunch. The salmon was incredible. We also loved the garlic mashed potatoes and roasted asparagus. It was a very nice meal in a very classy cafe. All of the bakery items looked delicious as well. We loved the beautiful interior.
Cost: $42.09

Stop #5: With $13 left, we decided to go out for a late night dessert date to complete the challenge at TWL Bistro. We enjoyed the Pot De Crème that was a chocolate crème brûlée with caramelized sugar and berries. We both agreed it was exquisite. It was a very relaxing environment with beautiful music to set the mood. We felt like royalty. There was no better way to finish the challenge.
Cost: $11
