The 6-ounce glass funnel helps champagne go down smooth...and fast

What is an event attendee to do, when he or she can’t muster the patience to sip champagne at the socially-acceptable pace? To answer this hypothetical problem, Randy Leslein, founder of fantasy football software FanDraft, has created a product known as the Chambong—a glass-blown version of a beer bong, specifically designed to funnel champagne.

Leslein and his team of glassblowers have put five months of trials into building the current 6-ounce prototype, and audiences seem receptive. The first run of 3,000 Chambongs, retailing at $25, sold out after one month. The company is planning a second production run, as well as complimentary Chambong accessories.
