Chinatown craft-cocktail bar Hop Sing Laundromat (1029 Race St.) is stepping back its operation, but only for the summer.

Lee, the solo-named operator, says he will close Sundays and Mondays until September, effective immediately.

He says he has some project to attend to in New York.

Meanwhile, he has purchased 120 bottles of 2004 Perrier-Jouet.

You and I would pay $149.99 a bottle for the bubbly. As a state licensee, Lee pays $145.78, including tax.

Although most bars would double or triple the wholesale price, he's selling 'em for $175. You can either get the bottle or have the bar create cocktails out of it.
