Well, it seemed like a good idea at the time. His name is Peter Serafin, 57, married, Manhattan-born, and a diehard Green Bay Packers fan. Since he’s a Wall Street investment banker and apparently can afford it, he shelled out a total of $240,000 to take five friends (all Giants fans) on a road trip to see Sunday’s NFC playoff game between Green Bay and New York art Lambeau Field.

How does one spend $240,000 at a football game, you ask? Easy. His trip included:

Fully stocked luxury RV.

Two waitresses.


Executive chef of the Old Homestead Steakhouse.

Three TVs.

26 bottles of champagne

65 Kobe beef burgers

100 gallons of beer

150 pounds of prime beef.

10 live lobsters.

Six tickets on the 50-yard line.

Oh, and he also missed his 28th wedding anniversary.

All the quotes we have from Serafin came before the game — no telling what he’s feeling like now. Maybe he’s living in a tent with the Occupy Wall Street protesters.
