Jerry’s calling it quits

LEBRON JAMES IS rumored to have one of the single highest bar tabs in Vegas history. It included 33 bottles of Cristal champagne ($59K), a six-liter bottle of the famous bubbly ($50K), a bottle of Dom ($25K), Fiji water ($176), Grey Goose ($925) and more. How much does it cost a player to be like Lebron? Try $171,937.53 - plus tip.

AT TRYST NIGHTCLUB, a customer’s Cinco De Mayo celebration included a $100,000 bottle of Nebuchadnezzars of Veuve Clicquot (don’t worry if you can’t pronounce it, just ask for the club’s best bottle), 16 bottles of Dom (at $850 apiece), eight bottles of Dom Luminous ($950 each), water, Red Bull and a 20-percent tip ($29,581.20), putting a $189,375.98 ding on the AMEX Black.

IN HIS LATEST book, Physics of the Future, Dr. Michio Kaku says, “Commuting to work won’t be such an agonizing chore because cars will drive themselves.” If Google gets its way, Nevada will be the first city in the world to have driverless cars. The search engine giant is lobbying lawmakers to legalize the operating of autonomous automobiles on public roads. Can you imagine cruising down the Strip traffic free? And, yes, they also want to legalize talking and texting if your car can drive itself.
