Stimulus-Worthy Meals

May 5, 2008

I got my stimulus rebate on Friday – direct deposit to my account. And it took all of my willpower to move it immediately into my savings account. But NY Mag did a cute article on 18 Ways to Blow Your Tax Rebate, and they included a section on food. Their short term investment: buying 6 $100 orders of eels at Le Berardin this week for you and 5 friends. Medium term: Buy a one-year membership to the wine auction house Acker, Merrall & Condit’s Platinum Wine Club. And long term: get a 90-minute group lesson (for 12 people) from the experts at Murray’s Cheese. And here’s my own, personal suggestion: book the 9-course tasting menu at Per Se for two and then cringe when you have to leave your leftover $100 for a 20% tip.
