CEO spent $300k on dinner

Vice Media Inc. Chief Executive Officer Shane Smith paid for a $300k Las Vegas dinner last month, according to a person who asked not to be identified because the meal was private.

The Vice CEO had apparently had quite the night at the blackjack tables — according to the Bloomberg report, he had won some $100,000 gambling earlier that night.

MGM spokesman Clark Dumont told Bloomberg that the majority of the check was spent on wine, with some bottles costing more than $20,000 each.

Smith did not immediately return a request for comment.

Smith is known for his antics. At Vice’s holiday party in December, he reportedly stood on stage and delivered a $1,500 cash bonus to each employee.
