Friday 13th – Bollinger Record broken

Following on from my post on Friday about celebrating Friday 13th’s with Bollinger champagne, I have a report from Special Correspondent San Fran Sean on the events in the London Wine Bar that night:

It was absolute chaos and tremendous fun!!!… All I know is we had 70 champagne glasses and they were all being used…

 

I arrived about 6.15pm and the place was crowded… then my mates behind the bar started clapping and cheering and everybody else joined in… it was a trifle embarrassing…

 

Opened the 1st bottle of Bollinger at 6.30pm… rapidly followed by bottles 2-10!!!!… Then the 1st magnum… I was so busy pouring champagne… I have never been hugged and kissed by so many strange women!!!!… I don’t think it was me… must have been the Bollinger…

 

At 10pm my mate Gary (owner of the London Wine Bar) informed me we had just poured the 51st bottle… the record from Hong Kong was 52…

 

I opened a magnum which made it 52 and 53… a new record… we carried on to a final count of 52 regular bottles and 5 magnums (1.5L bottles)… The 5 magnums will all be signed and go up on the wall to join the other 186 magnums surrounding the entire bar…

 

The new Friday 13th World Record is now 62 bottles of Bollinger set at the London Wine Bar in San Francisco on January Friday 13th 2006…

  

Needless to say, the rules were adhered to… although… We didn’t run out of Bollinger… I didn’t run out of money… and I didn’t expire… We actually ran out of people!!!!

Wonderful.   So remember, next Friday 13th, have a bottle of Bolly.   Or two.
