I would take the $200 and invest it in as many small businesses in my area that serve take out dinners, then go to the river and watch as many sunsets with my boys with me.  I would like to support my local businesses more!

We live in the foothills of the Rockies, so we love driving up there to explore new places and trails to walk. We would use the $200 either for stopping at a restaurant or buy some healthy snacks for the trail. That and the gas and perhaps buy a souvenir along the way.

I would make sure to use the $200.00 for a Thursday of early morning 9 holes of golf, followed by a massage, and then shop at Harris Teeter with the remainder of the money to get a 5% discount and buy food, including a steak that I can take home, grill it , and enjoy the rest of the evening with a glass or two of wine on my deck.

I would use that money towards a down-payment for a vehicle. I have not had a vehicle since 2013.

With a day off and $200 winnings, I would spend the day shopping online for groceries and necessities to fill my pantries and fridge. I would have everything delivered to my home on that very same day. Then spend the remains of the day putting my purchases away and planning meals.

Our local theater is allowing us to rent the theater and invite up to 20 guest or just have it all to ourselves and choose from about a dozen different movies they are currently showing. And you do not have to wear a mask . They even offer party trays for your guest as well

Since i've been effectively housebound for years before this stupid non-event, i'd probably put it away and do my usual stuff of bringing in firewood, caring for the chickens, ducks, geese, turkey and peacock, and so forth. There's nothing to do out here on this reservation anyway, and the casinos at the edge of the rez never had really decent entertainment before the lockdown.

I would use the funds to give my grandkids a backyard party! They have suffered from this pandemic without fully understanding why they can’t play with friends, can’t safely rerun to school, visit family their Nana and spend the weekend or holidays!  FaceTime and Echo Show is a temporary fix that gets more frustrating by the day!  Humans need the sense touch and love...not from a video chat!

I'd book a room at a spa hotel; order room service so I can eat a decent meal, and a massage for this disabled veteran's pain ridden body. I haven't had a vacation in over 20 years. If I don't feel safe enough to do the above, I'd spend the money on home delivered meals.

assuming the pandemic is over, since i have not been able to been with any of my 4 children or 9 grandchildren, i would invite them all to a dinner together. Course pretty sure I'll have to add more $, but thats ok.  Just want to actually be in the same room with them, and even hug.

I would to take my family out to dinner on a Saturday. It would be nice to spend quality time with the kids. Since they are all grown, we rarely spend time together. However, I am looking forward to spending time with them in the near future.

$200 and a day off... I’d either take a small drive up to the coast and enjoy the waves with my family or finish out balcony so when all this is over I could entertain at my house.
