A List of Better Ways to Spend $41 Than a Share of Facebook

Facebook is now a publicly traded company, weeeeeeeee! What you didn't buy in? We didn't either. Here's what to do with your $41 instead.

Here's to the instant gratification $41 can provide:

  • A new pair of Levi's
  • Minetta Black Label Burger and a pint of Old Speckled Hen. Plus tax. And a $4.03 tip.
