    a something you consumed.

    Mine $150 on one drink that contained gold. Second place $95 on a plate of fish from Italy, melt in your mouth. [​IMG]

    Had some Louis XIII right before I moved to Philly from Seattle. Not a cognac drinker, but it was good compared to the other cognac I tried that night.

    1 oz is $175 or so. Can't remember. I had more than 2 oz (so it seemed to me), but I got a good price because I was a regular. Plus since they knew I don't drink cognac, just martinis and vodka tonics, they gave me a sampler of 4 or 5 top shelf cognac to compare with.

    Was a good night.

    8 bucks for a beer at a swingers club--and it was a domestic.

    Not technically me since I didn't pay for it but it was close to $1000 per head.

    PS Saw Jeffrey Archer.

    I don't remember how much my glass of wine cost during the first date with my wife.

    But there's not a computer on the planet that's capable of calculating the overall cost.

    Just over $40 dollars for a bottle of wine that wasn't ready to drink yet. If matured, this Bordeaux would be twice as much. Once you drink it, it's gone and after a certain amount of time, so is the memory and the specific taste of the wine.

    You gotta keep drinking the stuff to keep the palette current and it's too pricey for me.

    $35,000 on an automobile

    After 10 years, it wasn't worth maintaining any more.

    I'm going to offer two answers.

    $50 USD for a steak at Ruth's Chris, and not worth it. Don't get me wrong-- the atmosphere was nice and it was a special occasion, but I'm not a big enough fan of steak to pay $50 for one.

    $20 USD for a bowl of chirashi-zushi at a local sushi place, and I would have paid $30 easily. The arrangement was exquisitely done; the result was restaurant magazine photo-shoot quality. I almost hated to start eating it, but I'm glad I did, as the ingredients were very fresh. I ended up spending $60 on that visit for sushi, including a generous tip.

    At the end of high school my music class and our two teachers went out. Between about 8 of us, we racked up well over 1200 dollars...

    I spent $3500 on a bottle of Glenfiddich when I was in Thailand(dont ask).
    Recently 130 bucks on a steak at the Metropolitan Steak House. Usually I just eat a lot of rice and chicken but once every 4 years or so I buy something unreasonably expensive.

    I spent over $100 on a limited bottle of 17 year Balvenie. I'm saving it for a special occasion. I don't live that extravagantly :eek:

    Dinner for 8 at LeCirque at the Bellagio in Vegas - with a bill totalling over $3,000 :eek::eek: Luckily, I have a very generous friend who covered the tab. The food was excellent, the wine lovely, the truffle box to take home great, but still... $3,000 :eek:

    If I'm feeling like a high roller I just eat my cash directly, like a salad.

    No, I did oil changes regularly. When it starts to "nickel and dime" you all the time, it's ready to become someone else's problem.
