Just a periodic update on the insanity of NYC.
One of my kids went to Pentop, the rooftop bar at the Peninsula Hotel on Fifth and 55th.
He was with two friends. Their consumption, in its entirety, was: two bottles of Bud, two bottles of Coors Light, and two vodka tonics.
The check, after tax but before tip: $99.00. I kid you not.
Not a bad profit margin when you can get $13.00 for a bottle of domestic beer and, I guess, about $17.00 for a cocktail.
