Dorothy Parker Once Said . . .

"One martini, two at the most! Three I'm under the table. Four I'm under the host!"

Miss Parker was a member of a Roundtable that met at the Algonquin Hotel. For what reason did they meet? Why did these writers and artists meet at a Roundtable? To be fabulous!

Oh these many years after the death of Miss Parker and her assembled cast of fabulousness, the Algonquin has maintained its mystique. When it comes to martinis, one should either drink them properly or not at all. The Algonquin has quite a list, and now offers the world's most expensive cocktail: a $10,000 martini that requires seventy-two hours notice.

Read about it here.
