And yes, some of them are quite expensive. Not trying to justify the price, just correcting the facts.

If on the other hand, they are the average American with a too small retirement account, and excessive debt … get real.

And remember that $80-100 is about ten guests at a nice ethnic restaurant.

Mae West understood that “when it comes to a choice between two evils, I always like to try the one I haven’t tried before”. Especially when you are at a restaurant with a reliable sommelier you will certainly get a quality wine and it may surprise you and become a favorite. When you go to a dance you don’t know who will be the best partner until you dance with him. A good hedonist loves encountering new experiences that he might enjoy!!!

It’s nice they don’t gouge too badly.

Yes, because in Manhattan a $50 wine is guaranteed to be swill .
