Server Accidentally Serves $4500 Bottle, Restaurant Is Actually Cool About It

A UK steakhouse got some free publicity over the awesome fail of a server who mistakenly served a crazy expensive wine. Seems like a win to be the person who finished dinner and only afterwards realized they drank a bottle of wine that's worth a car. Seriously, each sip of that is worth like 200 dollars. Anyway, it seems like the restaurant was cool about the mistake, so that's nice.

Presumptuous Date Loses It When She Has to Pay for Her Own Food

This is behavior is ridiculous. The winning strategy is to order something more reasonable, like pasta, and then go to the bathroom when you see the check coming. This is some real shoddy and overambitious planning. Who orders lobster?

Wine, it gets you drunk, but some aficionados seem to think it's got the antidote in there too. 

Why is that? 

In this video from Vox, they uncork why people think expensive wine is better than the cheap stuff, despite the fact that in blind taste tests, no one really thinks one is much better than the other. As it turns out, wine prices are driven by perception as buyers are influenced by things like price and label. However, as the video also points out, expensive wines sometimes taste really, really unpleasant.

This photographer, Marcos Alberti, working on this project for a while and these totally unscientific results are nonetheless entirely conclusive. So get out to that Happy Hour and get that smile on.

woman on twitter turns refrigerator water dispenser into wine dispenser

While most people in their 20s want credit for acting even remotely like adults, one woman has gone above and beyond what’s asked of someone being a grown up.

After ordering a new refrigerator, Clare decided to risk life and water filter by turning her fridge into a wine dispenser. All it took was a bottle of wine and the cold water filter in her fridge. Simply tilt the bottle into the water dispenser and out comes wine. Life hacks made easy.

It takes a proud adult to risk ruining a brand-new fridge with a move like this, so we commend you, Clare. However, perhaps sensing the immense power at their finger tips, Clare and her boyfriend switched the filter back to water. They told Buzzfeed that their fridge and filter is fine, but what about the copycats? What of the poor filters that will be inevitably be ruined due to the sugary content of wine. Those tubes are going to be sticky for generations.
