L.A. Cocktail Bar Unveils $500 Gold-Flaked Milkshake, For Peasants

milkshake

For all its fancy cars and coveted zip codes, Los Angeles still has a lot to learn about the luxury dessert game. A new cocktail bar in Hollywood called the Powder Room is generating a lot of hype for selling a $500 milkshake made with edible gold and Belgian chocolate and featuring a takeaway Swarovski Crystal ring.

Yawwwwwn.

The “Grand Opulence” from Serendipity 3 in New York already doubles that price tag and comes with a crystal goblet. Connecticut’s Knipschildt Chocolatier’s “Frrrozen Haute Chocolate” ($25,000) is made with gold foil and truffle shavings. Don’t even get us started on Japan’s $5 M diamond chocolate cake.

So nice try, Powder Room. You’ve managed to create a decadent dessert for the peons. Call us when your milkshake brings Tony Stark to our yard, mmkay?

Check out Caesars Palace’s New $17M, 500 Item, 25,000 sq. ft. Bacchanal Buffet

According to myth, when the ancient Roman gods came down to earth seeking glorious libation, one of their favorite destinations was none other than Las Vegas, Nevada. It is said that in the case of a particularly auspicious soothsaying year, Jupiter himself would often turn to his fellow gods and exclaim, “Yo mah deetees, we ‘bout to get debauchi-wasted up in this b*tch.”

Okay, maybe not, but that doesn’t make this $17 million dollar, 500-item, 25,000 sq. ft. buffet in Vegas any less impressive. Revamping the old Bacchanal restaurant, which closed in 2000, the new Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace promises to offer the biggest, most kaleidoscopic menu on the Vegas Strip.

Featuring nine open kitchens, seating for approximately 600 people and over 500 menu items including “made-to-order omelets, the freshest seafood and roasted meats […], regional comfort food like breakfast pizzas, red velvet pancakes, wood fired Neapolitan pizzas and Chinese dim sum, [and] even roasted South Carolina shrimp and grits,” the Bacchanal will also overlook Caesars Garden of the Gods pool, making it arguably one of the better ways to round out your “routinely spectacular” Tuesday.

Set to open in September, Bacchanal’s hours will run daily from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., with breakfast available at $19.99, lunch at $24.99 and dinner at $39.99.

When in Rome.
