Dave Opens Champagne Bottles As He Sees Fit: Part 1

Backstory: on New Year's Eve, those of us left in the office decided it was time for champagne. I strongly believe it's not a party without sabrage, so I taught our purchasing manager Dave, our steward Cedric, and everyone else around how to, well, cut the tops off of champagne bottles with a knife.

Since then, a monster seems to have been created. And since the cardinal rule of television is apparently "once you create a monster, you give it a show" -- here we go.

This, my friends, is Dave Opens Champagne Bottles As He Sees Fit, Part 1; other implements to follow.

And please, please don't try this at home.

Rupa Bhattacharya, Culinary Writer; starring Dave Mechlowicz, Culinary Purchasing Manager
