ECONOMY STIMULATOR


Known around town as the “cash bomb,” this person may single-handedly turn the economy around with patriotic purchasing power. Fetish: the feel of post-consumer purchase cellophane packaging against their skin in the moonlight. Famous last words: coupons are for wussies. BY MI S SY B LAC K


LISTEN


With one listen to the rollin’ rockabilly of Delilah DeWylde and The Lost Boys, you’ll “want to go out and have fun —


and when you go out you are spending money whether it’s food or parking…” says DeWylde, lead singer and bass player. The band plays in Saugatuck at the Sand Bar Saloon on Dec. 10 at 9:30 p.m. and is very tip-jar motivated. Besides, “It’s rude to request a song without tipping the band.” Check out the video for “The Price You Pay” on the band’s website. The song is a great reminder that for “everything you do in life, there is a price for it.”

DO


Shopping: online, in-store and yes, please! Enter the annual Shopping Jam in Holland on Dec. 17, from 8 to 10 a.m.


Shop early and “in pajamas with stores offering breakfast treats and discounts only available during those hours,” says Debi Whelan of Northern Rustics of Holland. Keep money in our local economy by supporting the 25-some participating Holland merchants.


Shopping Jam Downtown Holland holland.org, (616) 928-0234


DRINK


Those with money and a spread-the- wealth attitude never need any real celebration to toss down some


Benjamins. The economy stimulator will love bringing all his friends to belly-up to The Winchester’s Bloody Mary and Mimosa Bar. Bartender/server Renee listed off tons of offerings for the bloody bar noting that hours for this special run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and from noon to 7 p.m. on Sunday, which is


“more popular” perhaps for the Mimosa Bar addi- tion on this day. Expect to pay $3 per drink — unless you’re with the stimulator.

WATCH


The Wizard of Oz takes the stage through Dec. 18. This musical family favorite for all ages reminds us that


there truly is no place like home. View the production and find reasons to blow dough on anything: a small dog, some new red kicks, a trip someplace far away. Show tickets range from $16 to $30. But hey, one can spend more money by becoming a season member for $140.
