The Banker And The Champagne Spray
The story of the champagne-spraying yuppie has been making the rounds of the news the last few days. A Monaco-based banker spent over $37,000 on champagnes at a private London club but instead of drinking it, he sprayed the contents of the bottles around the room. The jubilliant banker then had to pay nearly as much to clean up the mess. Decanter reports that the banker ordered 49 bottles and six magnums of Louis Roederer Cristal, 13 bottles and two magnums of Dom Pérignon as well as two bottles of Cristal Rosé. No one knows how much of the wine was actually drunk but judging by the cleaning bill it seems that more of it went on the walls than down the throat. A spokesperson for the newly-opened Mo*Vida club said that customers can do what they want as long as they are willing to pay for the damage.
