Seems like a rather mild day in many parts of the country – hope you’re out and about and enjoying yourself (I’m going to lunch in a few to say some goodbyes).
Here are a few headlines to chat about over the weekend as you wander:
- A “mystery buyer” spent $17,000 on a bottle of Glenfiddich 50-Year-Old Single Malt. It’s one of only six bottles available in the United States. I’d imagine it’s pretty good, and that whoever bought it has one hell of a special occasion coming up (or not).
- A couple was kicked off a Celebrity cruise ship in St. Kitt’s after “they were caught with marijuana in their cabin.” I’m good with the fines and the policies, but removing them from the ship seems a bit excessive, no? I’ve literally seen a person vomit over the edge of a cruise ship without consequence (alcohol), but I suppose that difference in enforcement should not surprise me.
- Royal Caribbean is hosting the first Elvis cruise in Australia – it’s a three-day voyage with 14 Elvis tribute sets. Sounds like a good time for fans of the King – it is jam-packed and sold out. I had no idea he was that popular in Australia.
