On the Rocks

Whoa. The Algonquin Hotel is now offering a $10,000 martini, complete with a loose diamond at the bottom of the glass. While I find that greatly entertaining (if somewhat extravagant), I rather wonder as to the point. Sure, you can impress your lady friend by buying her a blingalicious martini, but it's not like she can scoop out the diamond and wear it. It would still need to be set.

I think one of Lana Turner's husbands had the right idea. Multimillionaire Bob Topping proposed by dropping a diamond ring into her martini. Of course she accepted.
