Drink Like a Baller, Spend Like a Broke-Ass
Ugh, rich people. They’re always making us regular Joes feel so goddamn… poor. They drive around in their fancy-schmancy white stretch limos, eating caviar and endangered, baby mammals with their pinky sticking out, all while perpetually drowning in a sea of diamonds and mink stoles (paws still attached, of course). It’s just NOT FAIR, I tell you!
Take those Hollywood folks, for example. Did you know that on top of getting paid millions of dollars to memorize silly words and play kissy-face with each other all day long, they recently had a big party (“Invite Only” apparently- pssh whatever, snobs) where they all get dressed to the nines and then spend 4 hours congratulating and giving one another gold statues? It’s true! Oh what a glorious thing it must be to live amongst the elite.
But since we’re a bunch of broke-ass chumps (and damn proud of it), there’s not a whole lot we can do to squelch our envy except to drink. And since you were planning to drink anyway, I’ve got just the ticket. Or should I say, the dollar bill….
Listen up while my girl D E N A breaks it down:
What you want: Cash
What you need to drink: Skouras Peloponnese Red (~$11)
Why: If anyone knows how to make being broke look baller, it’s the Grecians. Those cats may be in a financial clusterfuck, but they have the most amazing gene pool, they live in the most beautiful country on the planet, they have redunk food, and they’ve been making delicious-ass wine for like a gazillion years. Damn.
What you want: Diamond rings
What you need to drink: Quinta da Aveleda Vinho Verde (~$8)
Why: It’s bright, exotic, and has a slight effervescence, which gives it that bling factor. Also, Vinho Verde literally means “green wine”. You know what else is green? MONEY, bitches!
What you want: A swimming pool
What you need to drink: Peachy Canyon “Incredible Red” (~$10)
Why: If you can’t have a swimming pool, you can always find a peachy little canyon, fill it up with your salty tears, and drown your sorrows for all of eternity.
Espiral Vinho Verde from Trader Joe’s is only $4 and it rocks!
