It might be good to be the Queen of England but it's apparently better to be an Olympics boss in London right now.

The other day Reddit user posted this photo of a receipt from a lunch attended by "15 Olympics bosses" in London which totalled £44,660, or about $70,000USD. About £19,000 of that was spent on a bottle of Hennessy. Outrageous!

But it was a mystery as to where this receipt was from. However, Gawker took it upon themselves to find out, deducing that the receipt likely came from China Tang restaurant inside The Dorchester in Knightsbridge:

We [Gawker] called the restaurant to see if it had hosted a 15-person Olympic luncheon; the hostess told us that it "probably" had — apparently Olympic officials have been in and out of the restaurant over the last few weeks — but she couldn't specifically confirm this one.
