Meanwhile Over In The French Riviera...

Tyler Durden's picture

... The local socialists are suffering under oppressive austerity. And by that we mean the 1% continues to party like it is 1999. Of course, this is amateur hour for the luxury beach club: recall that the man, the FX myth, the, well, arestee, Alex Hope spent $323,483 back in March. That was right before the market swooned. Is this another interim top?

You cannot turn off the TV. You can only lower the volume.

$12 fucking dollars for a Coke?  Where the fuck is my shotgun?

Buzz Fuzzel's picture

You must have learned math in a government school.  Please divide 20 by 2 one more time and see if you still get 12.

Q: Why do government employees stay at five star hotels?

A: Because there are no six star hotels.

They need to get the Nikki Beach included in inflation surveys.  That'd soon get Gold wriggling along....

The word "THE" costs $4.00?

SeverinSlade's picture

So many Euros in this cat's pocket, he decided to start paying for words.

The = Tea in French. Loup = Wolf. Langouste = Lobster.

Wait until you see the tab for the inventory on the shelves of that person’s prepper survival bunker.

 At least their beach wardrobe expenses are likely pretty nominal there.

I'll bet wolf tastes just like chicken, if you fix it right.

and of course the entire bill was generated trying to attract 'foxes'

THE is usually $6-8.00 here in Chicago at McCormick Place plus 10 percent sales tax

Sometimes, you must get into the psych of certain class of people. A friend who owns a private bar with live music in Tokyo's Ropongi district, was just breaking even, even though the drink pricing and the annual fee was reasonable.

Then he trippled the pricing and started advertizing. When the Japanese elite heard that this was the most expensive private bar in the area, they flocked in.

My club is more expensive than your club mentality. it works.

Pretty much the easiest way to ensure people who can't afford things don't go. It's like a "poor person" filter which is why they like it. They know only the people who can afford to be there, are there.

I know a few guys like this. Won't play golf for $50 if it's on special, because it's cheap. $100 minimum for them to even respond. $250? Even better.

Let's go get a beer over at that hole in the wall that's cool as shit with all the sexy local bitches... $5 beer night... no? Okay, how about the place where there's a 900% premium on a bud-light's and the Keystone light's on sale for $15? They're all about it.

I don't know about dumbasses.  Some people have more money than they know what to do with.  I have noticed the state parks around here are much more enjoyable since they started charging a $30 dollar yearly pass.  No lines, tons of room and always parking, for 30 bucks a year? Probably worth it even for me, and I am one of the tightest guys around.  I wouldn't pay 12 bucks for a 24 pack of cokes though, much less one.  Maybe if Kate Upton was pouring....

I forgot to ask, Does EBT work at Nikki's?????

barroter's picture

I've seen this also. We knew a couple who HAD to spend their money on the “best.” He was a surgery technician and she was a nurse. Their combined incomes still weren't enough for their lifestyle so a lot ended up on credit. The “best” cutlery, dishes, rugs, hardwood floors, computer and to top it off, a new porch made from teak and mahogany.


It lasted two years before the Repo Men showed up.

Euros my friend. Why not, they won't be worth much fairly soon.

Soooo much grand cru Champagne wasted by Russian oligarchs squirting it out the bottle at bystanders at Nikki Beach.  This would be the perfect place for an Occupy shanty town.

$10 for a coke?  Youch!!!

SeverinSlade's picture

10 EUR for coke?  For that, I would expect it to read "CRACK" on the receipt.  Unless he's dealing with some very watered down shit.

TrustWho's picture

....wrong currency! but good margins for resort.

All I can say is that the local pussy is either real expensive or is getting shortchanged big time...
