Best Place to Get Teed Off

At Grand Sierra Resort’s driving range you can drive a bucket of their special floating golf balls toward a manmade chain of islands in a murky concrete reservoir. Each island has a hole on it, and if you can manage to get a hole in one, you can win a free game of golf at a local course or even a trip for two to Hawaii. For $3 you get to rent three clubs. Just don’t ask for more than one driver. It really, really pisses them off when you ask for more than one driver.

Best place for cheap party favors

Parties are fun, but they sure can put a dent in your savings account. Whether you’re planning a baby shower, birthday party or a holiday celebration, stop by one of several Dollar Tree locations for cheap decorations, gift bags and gift-wrapping supplies—all for $1 or less. Now is a great time to stock up on Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas décor. Don’t forget to check out other aisles, as well. You may find your favorite dish-washing detergent in stock, which will come in handy with all the dishes you’ll have to wash after the party. Unless of course, you’re using paper plates, which you can also find at any of their stores.
