If Seattle Seahawks receiver Golden Tate asked his friends to split a recent bar bill, they probably sneaked out the back door.
Tate decided to celebrate Seattle’s recent Super Bowl victory in style. He went out and decided to have a bottle of champagne. Tate bypassed the traditional overpriced drinks for a beverage that cost more than most homes.
According to ESPN business reporter Darren Rovell, Tate partied with a $100,000 bottle of champagne. Tate celebrated with a 15-liter bottle of Armand De Brignac’s Nebuchadnezzer champagne, also known as the “Ace of Spades.” It is described as a drink that “exemplifies unmatched wine making expertise and a true passion for the art of Champagne”, according to the company's Twitter page.
Rovell said the bar or champagne maker usually comps the bottle if champions take a picture with it. When you consider how little it costs to make alcohol, or the actual purchase price for a business that serves alcohol, Tate's free drink will not cause either establishment to go broke.
Of course, the bottle is not open in Rovell’s pictures. He may have posed with the bottle for fun, or he actually consumed a beverage that is worth more money than many people will earn in a few years.
Regardless, Tate definitely knows how to party.
