Champagne Power Hour

A staffer at Lavo shares a tale of a whale who was ordering a ton of high-end champagne and then decided to order a 30-liter Armand de Brignac "Ace of Spades." When he ordered it, it kind of shut everyone up, mostly because it costs $150,000. They have to keep the bottles locked up in the back. After ordering, the whale tipped it slightly and held it over the table while everyone nearby held out glasses to get their fill. The bottle normally has to be wheel barrowed out. And at the end, there's a listed 20 percent gratuity on every bottle, which comes out to $30,000. [EaterWire]
