2008_09_biron.jpgAlley wine bar Hotel Biron has evolved into quite the late-night industry favorite, says owner Chris Fuqua, who looks like a character out of The Big Lebowski: "We were at full capacity at 2:00 am last night and I would say 98% of the people hanging out were sommeliers and bartenders and waiters ... You get all these poor people with really fancy tastes. Like they'll be living in a crappy studio apartment with no heat. They don't have any insurance. But still, they won't think twice about spending half their night's tips on a good bottle of wine." [Guardian, photo]
