Its days like these that make you wonder whether Batman had it all wrong. Whether crimes (which Gambling was at one time) really do pay and help one to be propelled into the big league. At least thats what this Gambler may have you believe after spending a ridiculous £120,000 ($192,000) on the most expensive champagne in the world. Its the same one (though another bottle obviously) which was recently uncorked by the Boston Bruins to celebrate their Stanley Cup win.
Don Johnson (or the ‘gambler’ as we keep tagging him as) is an expert Blackjack player. The 30 liter bottle of champagne (Armand de Brignac) despite being the most expensive in the world was liberally sprayed over the crowd at the One for One club in Park Lane in London.
Don was in the city to see his friend Bon Jovi perform. Given that he sprayed away and shared the champagne with the crowd, he went on to order a methuselah (six litres) of Armand de Brignac at £25,000 ($40,000) , a magnum of Dom Perignon Luminous 2002 for £750 ($1200) and a £420 (670$) bottle of Grey Goose vodka.
For those wondering about the man’s fortunes ; luck or intellect – here is more food for thought. Don Johnson was previosuly in the news as the man who once cleaned out three Atlantic City Casinos when he scooped up $15 million (£9.3million) in high stakes card games.
Money can be the husk of many things, but not the kernel. It brings you food, not appetite; medicine, but not health; acquaintances, but not friends; servants, but not faithfulness; days of joy, but not peace or happiness. —
