As the Chinatown bar Hop Sing Laundromat draws to its opening date (which could be Feb. 29, or, for that matter, Feb. 30), its bar is being stocked.

Twenty-one bottles of Dom Perignon champagne - a quantity usually not seen outside of a rap video or NBA party - line a metal shelf. At $145 a bottle from the Liquor Control Board, that's steep inventory.

Why all the Dom? The operator, the single-named Le, explained that he'll use Dom in all sparkling drinks.
