The Mother of all Martinis


Drinkers might want to keep a clear head when ordering a martini at New York's historic Algonquin Hotel or they might pay $10,000 for that cold sip.

The landmark hotel, where famed wit Dorothy Parker and fellow literary lights at the Round Table imbibed, offers a $10,000 martini, complete with a loose diamond at the bottom.

No one has ordered one yet, in the martini's first week on the menu, but the hotel hopes some romantic soul will buy one any day now.

Today, Parker's ode to the martini adorns hotel napkins: "I love a martini -- but two at the most. Three I'm under the table; Four, I'm under the host."

You Said

I don't care how much money one has, this is absurd. Absolutely absurd.

If any girl honestly thinks she is worth this from a guy, she needs to see a therapist. :)

It's not just a martini, Iceman - - it's also some nice ice - - which is an investment so it isn't really throwing money away - - and folks who can buy one of these tini's doesn't worry about money

I saw this headline on the net yesterday, and almost clicked on it, but thought, "why bother, Lawren will have it on the blog tomorrow, already summarized and everything."

And people say blogs don't perform essential public functions!

I can see it if that is your way of proposing and you were planning on dropping 10K on a ring anyway...But, just because? --you must be crazy!

Says: Eli at December 3, 2004 12:59 PM

Hee hee...you know it, Chuck.

Says: Lawren at December 3, 2004 01:39 PM

I'd rather have 4 martinis. Being under the host sounds much more fun than being under the table.
My new favorite martini is the Creme Brulee, really sweet though.
