I would add a privet chef for a meal or two, I would have a driver available 24-7 (we like to drink, and will not drive even after a couple), would also have a boat and captain available for a day or two. Snorkel with Aruba Bob, tour with Bully, professional family photos are must dos. Eating out I don't think much would change, MJ, Chalet Swiss, QDC, Passions, Blossoms, I am sure we'd try some new places. Oh and I'd spend a whole lotta time at the craps tables

There is one, if I ever win the lottery, I'm knocking on their door and making an offer they can't refuse. lol. If money was no object, there isn't one hotel that I would spend a thousand or whatever a night for. Not for a room or a suite. I'd rather spend $1000 a night for a fabulous house. And believe me==well, I'm sure you all know this but Aruba has some gorgeous gorgeous houses there.
    Sorry Gaby, but I'm flying down tomorrow with my Powerball winnings and purchasing the larger White House on the water at Arashi beach.

    If money were no object, I would buy a home and spend my 6 months/year in Aruba bringing my family along as often as possible. Maybe run a small boutique type homey hotel or maybe a B&B.

    I never play the lottery but I bought 10 tickets. I went to bed trying to figure out the lump sum after taxes, and how much I would receive monthly if I bought a bond earning 4.5 % or so. My math (in my little head) had me "struggling" on 300k a month!

    So with that money, I purchase the Penthouse suite at the Ritz and live their 6 months a year- even at their crazy rates I would have enough money left over to buy a new porsche 911 turbo every month (no I don't own one I drive a crv, lol)

    We don't play often. And we only bought 1 PowerBall ticket but if we win we are flying to Aruba first thing in the morning to meet our friends who are on a cruise stop tomorrow. We will have to come back in a week or so to take care business but after that I see lots of suites and penthouse stays in our future! Always fun to imagine.
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    That's actually super funny and ridiculous enough that I am going to stop off to pick up a few tickets on the way home. You have piqued my interest
