Outrageous Receipt of the Day

That’s just crazy. Who in their right mind would pay 9 bucks for a Red Bull?

    That is outrageous! Very sneaky to have a line to add a gratuity when it’s already included!

    The Patron Silver is the most reasonably priced item on the receipt. Which is odd because at a normal bar it is one of the more expensive items. And paying $25,000 for a bottle of booze is just stupid whether you have money or not.

    • Okram,

      And for $25k a bottle you’d think they’d spell it right on the receipt. It’s EU, not UE in “Veuve Clicquot”.
      Regardless, it’s a 15 liter bottle, so it’s not quite the bad deal I initially thought it was.

        It’s a non-vintage so still hysterically overpriced. More than 50% more expensive than the ’00 Dom. At least the 25k 6 litre Dom was from a good vintage.

    Ordering a Bud Light when someone else is picking up the nearly $200,000 tab is baffling.

    I learned along time ago to drink the good stuff at first then switch to the cheap crap as the night went on. At that point its about the buzz and not the flavor as the buds get numb.

    Anyone paying that much for champagne is certifiable.

  11. Mike K,

    This is why I won’t buy alcohol in bars.

    I looked at their site. The place looks like it’s from a 70s-era James Bond flick. http://www.trystlasvegas.com/flash/

    Screw the $9 for a Red Bull. Who on earth would pay $10 for a Bud LIght?

  13. Rampage_Rick,

    Grey Goose at $14 a shot or $475 for the bottle?

    26 x $14 = $364
    A two-six of Grey Goose is $50 here.

    The real question is whether the bottle they bought was a 26 or a 40? The biggest bottle you can buy here is a 1.75L (about 60 shots) for $110
