B-Bar, Roppongi

We interrupt our regular programming to bring you a burst of vitriol...

I knew how much the drinks cost before I went here. I knew what the charge was. But as I watched the bartender pour flat champagne into my glass and add blue food coloring, all I could think was "I'm being screwed."

Yes, as the bartender told us, you can try very expensive glasses (e.g. my $300 parfait-style glass). And maybe after you hoist the famous '8-inch-2-pound' champagne flute, you'll realize that you don't need a set. On the other hand, you could walk around the retail store and pick up the glasses at your leisure, which would save you a heck of a lot of money. You could even bring a bottle of water, or perhaps a split of champagne, and have a quick pour-n-sip.
