Given the state of the economy and the amount of debt that people in Western New York carry, it's always a good thing when you come across a nice lump sum of cash. Whether you play the lottery or your local radio station's cash contest, a chunk of money can go a long way to make things a little better.

On Facebook the other day, I asked the good people of Buffalo what they would do if they just happened upon $30,000, and while some of the answers were expected, like paying bills or going on a vacation, a few of the other answers were quite a surprise.

Several people talked about starting businesses, going on adventures, and creating memories; which got me thinking; since we're in the great city of Buffalo, what would be some great Buffalo-related things we could do with $30,000?
