The President got down and boogied with Beyoncé and a wall of gold champagne bottles. Real gold:
When President Obama addresses an elite roster of hipsters and multimillionaires, including hosts Beyoncé and Jay-Z, in New York tonight, he will do so next to a custom-designed tower of $800-per-bottle champagne that dominates the main room at Jay-Z’s 40/40 nightclub.
The 350-bottle champagne tower — designed by Jeffrey Beers — is a monument to Jay-Z’s favorite bubbly, Armand de Brignac, which is known colloquially by rappers, clubgoers and connoisseurs as Ace of Spades because of its gold-spade label.
While Obama most certainly does relate to you and feel your pain and all that, he’s also banned photos from the opulent event.
Sorry — that wasn’t very nice of me to say. What I should have said was, “While Obama most certainly does relate to you and feel your pain and all that, he’s also banned photos from the opulent event, suckers.”
