Man Most Likely to Drink Your Club Dry of Champagne

Don Johnson

We’re not sure at what point you’ve spent enough money to earn the nickname “Motherf***ing,” but Pennsylvania businessman Don Johnson pulled it off sometime around February when XS gave him a video shout-out under that name. Johnson first started attracting notice last New Year’s Eve, when he bought a $100,000 bottle of Armand de Brignac Ace of Spades champagne at XS and followed the next night with a Nebuchadnezzar (that’s 15 liters, kids) of Taittinger. Sports website became briefly infatuated with Johnson in May when a Press of Atlantic City piece noted that Johnson took AC casinos for $15.1 million in blackjack. In June he dropped $260,000 in a London Club while over there for a music festival headlined by pal Jon Bon Jovi, and in July he hosted Pam Anderson’s birthday party at Chateau. We can’t wait till he fills the XS pool with Veuve Clicquot and invites everyone to take a dip.

The Downtown Cocktail Room’s doors are impossibly un-door-ish.

For the uninitiated, it makes for an awkward moment. Had this happened to me, and I’m not confirming that it did, the larger metaphor wouldn’t have been lost: Maybe everyone doesn’t fit in here.
