Benecio Del Toro pr  Vesented "The Island" at BAM and I wanted to buy him a drink. It's one of the coolest films about hauling water 24/7 that I've ever seen.  Very existential it was like a poeticly realized Sisyphis.
 
He seemed pretty groovy.
 
I would have bought him a drinky poo at Frank's Cocktail Lounge, which is my favorite bar in the neighborhood but how does one approach a mumbler.
 
He doesn't actually mumble when he's talking about stuff he digs.

a round of zombie-themed vodka cocktails, each costing £30, made from rum, absinthe and grapefruit.

That makes absolutely no f*cking sense, which is par for the course at the Daily Fail.

Boy, first he gets to bang Lindsey Lohan in an elevator and now this? I'd like to flip lives with him. For real.

Also: serendipitous this article came up right after the one about the kid dropping $4k on candy.

Do you know why they call him Franky "Four Fingers" Doug? Because he makes stupid bets with dangerous people, and when he doesn't pay up, they give him the chop, Doug. And I'm not talking about his farking fore-skin either.

It was actually Scarlett Johansen.
 
2012-11-08 06:21:58 AM
So wait... he didn't party with Benny Del Toro, he just partied NEARBY Benny Del Toro?


I fail to see what Benny has to do with the whole thing.


/it's a waste to spend that much on Champ when you've already killed your tastebuds on specialty vodka dranks and "Red Bull".... like don't even bother getting a bottle of La Grande Dame, you're not worth it.

Also what is a bottle of Red Bull? Since when does that even come in bottles?

Anyone who feels he or she has to impress a nearby celebrity has a shiatty self esteem.
 
2012-11-08 07:29:23 AM
wow... what a waste of money on a waste of "celebrity" by a waste of oxygen.

hopefully he asked him about WOLFMAN 2 : Doucheboogaloo

Del Toro has made crap ever since FALILV

Well, boys, I reckon this is it - Tequila shot quarters toe to toe with the Beaners. Now look, boys, I ain't much of a hand at makin' speeches, but I got a pretty fair idea that something doggone important is goin' on back there. And I got a fair idea the kinda personal emotions that some of you fellas may be thinkin'. Heck, I reckon you wouldn't even be human bein's if you didn't have some pretty strong personal feelin's about drinkin' games. I want you to remember one thing, the folks back home is a-countin' on you and by golly, we ain't about to let 'em down. I tell you something else, if this thing turns out to be half as important as I figure it just might be, I'd say that you're all in line for some important promotions and personal citations when this thing's over with. That goes for ever' last one of you regardless of your race, color or your creed. Now let's get this thing in the cup - we got some drinkin' to do.
 
2012-11-08 07:38:04 AM
You spend tens of thousands of dollars on expensive drinks trying to impress someone downing tequila shots who doesn't even have tits? Well, to each his own, but that sounds like a wildly misguided effort...

Oh, I don't know. He seems nice enough, and if you impress him, maybe he'll give you a ride in his hot air balloon.

TommyymmoT: I wish I were the waiter.
A £5,229.31 tip is pretty damned good.


Yeah, it's a decent chunk of change for a waiter to bring home, BUT it's not a good tip considering the bill. 35,000 pounds? Uh, 15% would be 6250. 15% is what you tip if you're a tightwad or the service was bad. If I were going to spend 35,000 pounds in a bar to impress someone I'd be generous with the tip. At a minimum he should have tipped 20% or 7,000 pounds. If he really wanted to impress someone he should have just rounded up to 45,000 pounds.

Sounds like a lot of money, right? Well it is but think about it though - a $35 bar tab is not an unreasonable amount. I've had plenty of bar tabs that were about that much. Math is hard, especially after a few drinks (and I've had a few) but even I can tell that leaving $40 on a $35 bar tab is not 15%. I'm not going to start throwing change at the barmaid either - because 15% would be $5.25. Okay, maybe if I wasn't impressed with the service and I didn't plan on ever returning to that bar I might only leave $40 but typically I go to the same bars over and over again and I appreciate the service I get. I often at least know the first name of the bar-wench who is bringing me my drinks before I even sit down. I wouldn't hesitate to lay down $45 for a $35 tab for a waitress that gave me good service after a couple of hours of drinking.

This guy is a cheapskate.

What % do you think is "correct" to tip in a London bar?
 
2012-11-08 09:37:35 AM
If the guy was a regular...a rich as fark regular...who walked in with 9 other guys...

And has been know, on occasion, to spend that much...

WHY ON farkING EARTH would we assume he was trying to impress Del Toro?

Outside of "onlookers" or whoever the fark they asked...how do we even know the guy's group even knew Del Toro was in the club?

I think this article kisses Benny's ass just for the sake of kissing it.

Do you think the waiter worked 1000% harder than one who was working on a table with "only" a 3500 pound tab?

Is it me, or was that "article" either a big advertisement for Del Toro, or a big advertisement for that club? I mean, who writes an article about a somewhat large bar tab? It's not "the largest bar tab to date", it didn't really involve directly anyone of note, and the article makes a big ol' stretch by involving Del Toro - it's a bunch of hooey.

What I really read was "You might see Benicio Del Toro at our bar! C'mon down and drop a wad! We've got fashionable booze!" What, is the recession eating into that ever-important "stupid trader and clueless rapper" market?

2012-11-08 10:50:38 AM
Two comments

1/ Clearly an advert for the club with readily available quotes from the owner, receipt photo but protesting that they keep their members details private.

2/ It was a 15% tip (probably automatically added) lrn2math

I tried being a city trader. It didn't work out.

My problems started when I tried to trade Detroit for Las Vegas, and it got worse when everybody was offering to trade a bunch of crap cities in Arizona for my collection of northeastern cities. I don't care where you're from, there's no way New York City is worth two Tempes and a Tuscon.

SuperChuck: Do you think the waiter worked 1000% harder than one who was working on a table with "only" a 3500 pound tab?


You don't tip based on how hard they work. You tip based on your bill. That's how it works. If I go to Denny's and spend $12 the waitress gets tipped $2-3. If I go to an expensive restaurant and the bill is $80, the waitstaff gets tipped $12-15.

If you leave a $3 tip on an $80 bill, you're an ass.

What it has to do with him is a club advertising itself by name dropping and talking about some 'guy' who spent an obscene amount of money.
