Waiter Smiles Ear To Ear
Imagine the cheesiest biggest smile you've ever seen. Now imagine it on the face of the waiter who served a group of 16 rich kids who splurged €90 000 (R 954783, yip that's just shy of one million rands) on drinks. Why, you may ask? In Europe 20% gratuity is usually included in the bill. Cha-ching! [ Dr.Vino ]
Just Another Brick In The Wall
Hollywood's all-time-favourite couple 'Branjelina' are finally getting hitched! Brad Pitt (who is said to be doing most of the planning) will serve his own wine, a Provençal rosé named Pink Floyd, at the wedding celebration.

Beers, local ales and home-brews are being served up as the new wedding drinks craze. That's one sure-fire way to get the grooms involved. [ Daily Freeman ]

"Duff Man... Says A Lot Of Things! Oh, Yeah!"
Everyone wants a piece of The Simpsons. After recent reports that Colombian brewers were sued for copyright infringement on selling Duff Beer (the name of the beer in The Simpsons) a New Zealand brewery also had to make changes to its name. Ironically McDuffs Brewery ( originally Duffs Brewery) in Dunedin was founded by Gavin DUFF. Hmm...[ The Drinks Business ]
