And the bread is free at Per Se

Here’s more proof that “journalists” still don’t get what has happened to this country: Page Six Magazine’s “frugality” feature on Champagne. Rather than springing for a bottle at home in this “Scroog-ier holiday season,” it suggests, you should go out for a glass. At the Campbell Apartment, say, where you can drop $20 on a whiff of Veuve Clicquot, half the price of an entire bottle at even an overpriced liquor store. And really, “snacks” don’t make $29 Ruinart at Daniel a deal. Especially with the A-riffraff hanging out at that bar.
