    If you had $1000 to splurge on one ingestible (smoke, eat, drink) item, you would buy? Think it would live up to the hype?

    Me, being the coffee gal I am, yes, I would get a pound ($160) of the Kopi Luwak coffee :rolleyes: Then Id try the others on the list....

    So what is your top shelf?

    thats what i was thinking but i figured we could just go the Vix Eatery in the Hotel Victor in South Beach, Miami and buy the La Corona from 1937 for $1000 and they throw in a bottle of Prohibition era whiskey...sounds like a deal to me...read on, monsier

    In that case, I'll get $1000 worth of Woodchuck Amber Draft Cider and bring it to the steer roast. ;)

    Vintage Port. Probably from 1977. $1,000 would just about get a case, so I would have some to share.

    Three boxes of Montecristo No. 2s from www.cubanlous.com and as much Havana Club 7 year old and 3 year old rum that the remainder would buy. After dinner cigar, anyone?

    Cheese? Different types. There is a cave aged Gruyere that Hubby and I love, along with a cheddar from Dorset that is aged forever and is sooooooooooooo good....

    Well, I'd love to bring for the gang some Black Diamond Extra Sharp Aged Canadian Cheddar. Oh, and some fresh press cider, a bit of Hudson Valley Fois gras, some Czech sausage and a few loaves of Italian bread from Ballisteri's Bakery in Buffalo.

    As for myself, a few years ago, up in San Francisco with the wife , we had dinner at Aliotos on Fishermen's Wharf. On the menu was a sixty-five dollar lobster tail that was, quite frankly, the most exquisite meal I ever had. So, If I had a Grand, I'd take TWO!

    Hmmm, it would probably be a bottle or two of vintage ruby portwine for me - once you taste portwine that fine you are marked for life.

    This may be :eek:fftopic: but, in addition to the item(s) we'd buy or bring to our "Fantasy Party", let's suggest where we'll meet to share it!

    I'd go on a pattern and fabric shopping spree. I'd want to find some vintage Alencon lace to make my wedding gown with.
