    Rathskeller no more

    Unconfirmed, but a close, knowledgeable friend just informed me that the last remaining bottles of this rye (six total) were sold to one individual for $50 each at The Seelbach. The beverage director for the bar was apparently fired over it.

    It's a shameful, shameful day.

    if sold at that low of a price, me thinks there were some collusion going on between the purchaser and seller.

    That's not what the price last was via room service when I stayed.

    It is a sad day. otherworldly rye.

    If true, that sounds like an unfortunate turn of events. At the very least, I hope the purchaser drinks those bottles.

    That has been discussed and a few people will be watching for flippers.

    You never know. Said person could have been knowingly on the way out and wanted some incentive. Or, you know, just plain stupid.

    Indeed, when I purchased at room service the price was much higher than that.

    We're they previously selling it by the drink (i.e. 20 x 2oz pours)? Or some special $ for guests?
