Inexpensive but nice countertop for basement?

I am putting a 2'6" x 6'6" peninsula in my finished basement as a way to divide the space (between family/TV room and playroom) and to provide a place that's not the couch to have snacks, etc... It can also double as a "bar" for the adults as it will have a good view of the TV for Sunday football. I thought about trying to find a granite remnant but from what I've seen they're still way too expensive. I'd like something around $8-10 a square foot. Any suggestions?

You could always do tile. Not my favorite, but cheap and better than formica.

Another option would be wood. With tons of coats of polyurethane, it would also be resonably durable.

You might find a store in your area that deals with donations. In Atlanta there is a Habitat for Humanity store that accepts donations of overstock and nice used home goods.
