Dodged a Bullet

I participated in a charity bowl-a-thon this afternoon. As part of the fundraising efforts, they had a bunch of silent auction items. I had an opportunity to bid $450 for 2 premium bottles at Pure at Caesar's Palace. For those of you not familiar with Las Vegas bottle service, to get a table reservation you have to buy bottles of alcohol at exhorbitant prices. The estimated value of the package was $1200.

Since my birthday is on Tuesday, I was sorely tempted to buy it and go out with a bunch of friends. While they were counting down the end of the auction I saw that I had bid outbid and I literally had 10 seconds to make a decision.

I passed on it because I thought I could do a lot with $450. When I got home and talked it over with my husband, he knew it was a bargain... Did I make a mistake guys?
