If Bruce Springsteen were ever to launch in a “Win A Date With Bruce Springsteen” contest, we now know exactly how much money would be necessary to turn the Boss’s head (hint: enough to buy a condo in a pretty decent neighborhood of Chicago). Springsteen recently participated in a charity auction benefitting the Bob Woodruff Foundation, which assists military service members and their families.

There, one lucky—and wealthy—attendee bid $300,000 for an evening with Springsteen that will include a ride in the side car of the Boss’s motorcycle to his house. There, the anonymous winner will receive a guitar lesson and enjoy a lasagna dinner with Springsteen, which will be served without any of that fancy imported cheese or sulfate-free wine because that stuff’s for management. Yellow cheese and Budweiser only, thanks.


Incidentally, Springsteen fetched $5.7 million less at auction than Poison Ivy.
