Last month, we asked a fun, but simple question; "What's on your live event bucket list?" While we created our own lists within the office that included events like seeing the championship-clinching game for each Chicago sports team, or seeing every NBA arena, our users started working on their own lists. Once complete, they got the chance to win $500 by telling us what event(s) they would like to see some day.

We took all of those responses, randomized them, and drew a winner, but before we make the big announcement, let's take a look at some of our favorite responses!

Sports-related bucket list items

  • Attend an Army/Navy football game
  • Visit every MLB stadium
  • Get season tickets for the Chicago Bears
  • Attend the Super Bowl
  • Sit court-side at an NBA game
  • Visit every NBA arena
  • Follow the Chicago Blackhawks on a Canadian road trip
  • Attend the NBA All-Star game
  • See every major PGA Tour tournament
  • Visit every NHL arena

Music-related bucket list items

  • See BeyoncĂ© in ten different cities
  • Go to Tomorrowland in Belgium
  • See a show at Red Rocks in Colorado
  • Go to a concert every weekend during the summer
