Here at Weekend Notes we've catered to students, starving artists, and other broke people with a plethora of cheapdateoptions. But what if you've got the opposite problem – cash to splash, but no idea where to take your paramour on your first date? No one ever thinks about the problems of the rich.
Until now. Following are a selection of super exxy date options sure to win the heart of any date.

Price Bracket – Sell a Kidney
We'll begin with some entry level options that are still accessible for mere mortals. Start saving now and you just might be able to afford dinner at one of Brisbane's fine dining restaurants. Nothing will impress your date more than forking over fistfuls of money for a bite of food served on an enormous plate. Brisbane has many fine dining options. Why not trade a week's rent for the seven course tasting menu (with wines) at Aria, or 'cheap out' at the more affordable E'cco Bistro?

If your date is a movie star in your eyes, why not provide an experience where they can truly receive the VIP treatment? Many Brisbane attractions, such as Alma Park Zoo and the Wheel of Brisbane, offer VIP packages that allow you to partake in experiences away from the common folk.
Top it off with a nightcap at The Kitty at Treasury Casino, where you can sample Australia's most expensive cocktail. Kitty on the Rocks is Moet champagne served in an engraved crystal flute garnished with a 0.75 carat diamond (Get it? Rocks means diamonds, not ice.) It requires a 48 lead time and will set you back $9500.
If things go well, book a room at the Palazzo Versace. The Imperial Suite comes with your own private butler service and costs around $2000 a night – chump change for a Rockafella like you, right?
Price Bracket – National GDP
You light your cigarettes with $100 notes. Your bank manager treats you like an old friend. You could buy and sell people if you wanted to (but of course you wouldn't, because that would be very wrong). You are the 1%, and you're in need of appropriate 1% date ideas.
What about sailing? Rich people like sailing, right? And the Tall Ship Eco Experience also gives you the opportunity to pretend you're a pirate.
Or a private jet ride? If you don't own your own, charter one through Adagold.
You can even hire out the Gabba. I'm not sure what you would do with it, but by gum it would look impressive.
Being hopelessly middle class, I'm sure there are loads more fancy date ideas that I've missed. Leave me a comment if you've got something in mind.
