6 Ridiculously Awesome Jersey Things to Buy with $500M Powerball Jackpot
Update (1/6/16): The jackpot has soared up to $500 million for tonight's drawing...so you could buy this stuff AND have plenty to spare!
Here are some awesome ways you could spend it here in New Jersey:
(For the record, this assumes you take the cash option of $244.8 million, and will wind up with approximately $146.88 million after taxes. Just attempting a hint of practicality. lolz)
You'd surely save some cash if you bought them by the dozen, but whatever, DONUTS FOR EVERYONE!
That's way more than any person could possibly drink in a lifetime (even for a cold brew addict like me) so be sure to treat your friends!
The actual number might change depending on your beach, of course, but you could basically pay for seasonal badges for every resident of Monmouth and Ocean Counties. Twice.
*According to Business Insider, that is. For real though, Nicholas is amazing, and the Chef's Table experience is unparalleled, and if you have endless cash, you'd be crazy to not dine like this on the regular.
There was a lot of math and estimating involved with this one (neither of which are my strong suit.) That said, I'm pretty sure this is an accurate figure.
Yes, you could buy all six of the priciest homes currently on the market (three of which are here at the Jersey Shore) -- and still have enough left to cover the property taxes for at least a couple years!
