In the mood for a pizza? Maybe a POTUS-approved pie? A small "South Side Classico" at Pi Pizzeria costs $17. You can have 49,058,823 of them for $834 million.

Feeling fancy? How about a one-ounce serving of Osetra caviar at Tony's (410 Market Street; 314-231-7007)? How about 7,581,818 ounces of Osetra caviar at Tony's. That's what $834 million will score you.

Feeling really fancy? How about last night's menu at Thomas Keller's renowned restaurant, the French Laundry, including both the caviar and black-truffle supplements. That will cost you $395 per person (which does include service). For $834 million, you could treat yourself plus 2,111,391 of your friends.
