Jacklyn Collier was dubious that the man claiming to be Martin Shkreli really was Martin Shkreli. He convinced her by showing photos of his identification. Curious about the notorious HIV drug price-gouger, she went on a date with him and wrote about it for the Washington Post.
The waitress came over and made a few recommendations. Martin asked, "Is there a vegetarian menu? My assistant said there was a vegetarian menu. There's a vegetarian menu, right?" He wasn't being a jerk; it was more of an "I'm stressed because my date doesn't put raw fish in her mouth" kind of comment. The waitress assured us that there was a vegetarian menu. We ordered a drink and Martin told me that he was a lightweight, something I'd never heard a man admit on a date (or ever).
The waitress also pointed out the list of Japanese teas on the menu. Most of the teas were priced between $8 to $13, but there was a "Gold Medal Sencha" for $120 a cup. Apparently it's extremely rare and won an important tea competition in Japan. After the waitress left, we joked about paying $120 for a cup of tea. I thought about making a price-gouging joke, but couldn't think fast enough.
