42 "Pussy" Shots For £126! An Unscientific Analysis Of The Epic…

Where to begin with this epic bar tab (full version at the bottom)? It's so single-minded, so devoid of nuance. I hate it. When Petchesky first directed my attention to this abomination, which was posted a few places yesterday, I thought it could only belong to one man—Don Johnson, the "champagne king" and "beast of… » 3/06/12 7:03pm 3/06/12 7:03pm

Don Johnson, The Champagne King And The Beast Of Blackjack, Has Once…

After a few months of suspiciously restrained behavior, blackjack savant Don Johnson has returned. He was spotted in October in Atlantic City stuffing fistfuls of casino chips into his gullet.

One Armand De Brignac Midas Bottle For £120,000! An Unscientific…

Atlantic City casino scourge Don Johnson (not to be confused with 80s-era TV scourge Don Johnson) must have seen the damage the Bruins did in the MGM Grand bar in Foxwoods recently. He must have burned with envy. For those of you unaware, Don Johnson has earned the dubious moniker of "The Champagne King" because he… » 6/28/11 6:35pm 6/28/11 6:35pm

Meet The Blackjack Superhero Who Took Atlantic City For $15 Million

Two weeks ago, we learned about the gambling ace who saddled the Tropicana Casino and Resort with a record $5.8 million loss at the blackjack tables in April.
