You've probably heard that you have a chance to win a trip to the College Semi-Finals and Finals in Dallas, Texas.  The prize includes round trip airfare for you and a guest, hotel accommodations, and tickets to the games.  If you're into basketball, this you're going to love this prize.  But what if you're not into college hoops?

Now before you go all “Hey!  Women like basketball too!” Just know that I’m trying to do a good thing here and that’s give you some options just in case you couldn't care less about the Finals.

Now, besides the airfare, tickets and hotel, we’re also giving the winner $300 for incidental expenses.  Why not use it on some fun stuff to do around Dallas while he's watching the games?

A day at the spa.

Get a massage or a facial at Spa Habitat.  They have some reasonably priced hot stone massages at about $140 for 80 minutes of relaxation.


I know, I know.  Another sexist stereotype.  But admit it.  Ladies love to shop and Dallas has some of the best.

You can easily spend an entire day at Grand Prairie Premium Outlets.  They feature 110 outlet stores and have all the brands name stuff like Banana Republic, Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th, Talbots, Bloomindales… you name it.  And this place is HUGE.  Once you see all there is to shop in Dallas, you might reconsider the trip home.
