World's Most Expensive Dinner

from the expense-that-one dept

Okay, so this isn’t exactly a tech story, but it involves bankers and excess, which are two topics often closely related with the tech business world, so it’s worth posting. Six bankers from Barclays last summer set the world record for the most expensive meal per capita. In total, they spent $62,679. Most of that was spent on wine, as the restaurant (so nice of them) comped a few hundred dollars in food. The interesting part, however, is that five of the six bankers are no longer employeed by the bank. They quote one of the bankers who paid $12,800 for his part of the meal… even though he didn’t drink any of the wine.
