I don't have a spare $100 right now, but here's where I have recently spent my money in WR: I scored a pair of Rayban Wayfarers at Boomerang's, I just had my lenses put into them over at Parelli, I was told by staff that they're definitely circa the early 50's and from Rochester. My total investment: $53. Today, in brand new condition, they'd be worth $400- $500, not a bad find! I have been frequenting Banh Mi Ngon, more lately since they introduced their Pho noodle soup. It's delicious and portions are quite generous. Their prices are beyond reasonable. Lan and everyone else who works there are so incredibly gracious and nice. Jay and I have been in to Himalayan Bistro recently. Their food is so much better than what's offered here in JP and they will make it really spicy if you ask, unlike other places who assume you can't handle it. Staff is nice, the space is beautiful. If I had a few dollars to spend, I would pop on by and pick up a gift certificate at Wicked Sharp so Jay could pick out new boots and go snowboarding this season. I'd visit Mr. Sweeper and see if they could replace the cord on my vacuum, it's a bit frayed and started shooting sparks last time I attempted to use it! I'd head in to Pazzo and pick out some books for myself. I'd return to Boomerang's and do a bit more treasure hunting, same with Saver's. I'd pick up a gift certificate at the Porter. I hope you'd consider spending some of your dollars at the Busted Knuckle!

I'd also pop by Kalembar Dune as I've always been intrigued whenever I drive by and have meant to go in for some time.

I would eat breakfast at Rox Diner, then use the remaining money to buy something cool at Boomerang's and/or something for the house at True Value.
