If Peter Pan taught us nothing else, it’s that fairies draw sustenance from audience approval. They’re needy like that. But Tinker Bell wouldn’t have had to beg you to clap if she showed up with a bottle of vodka the way Tao’s “bottle fairies” do every night. Oh, we believe, Tao; we believe! (We also could use some more ice—would you send a busser over?) Every night, Tao’s bottle fairies fly above the din and clamor of the crowd on a mission of mercy: delivering booze to those most desperately in need. Sometimes it’s one big splash entrance. Sometimes, as it was in December 2011, they have to deliver a “seemingly endless” supply of champagne to Jay-Z. Hey, they’ve got to earn their wings somehow.
