GLUG, GLUG, GLUG: Some might argue that the state of publishing is reason enough to belly up to the bar, but Forbes is giving readers another reason to raise a glass.

So much for idle chatter — subscribers will make up the bulk of the crowd.

Forbes is keeping a tight lid on the particulars until Thursday. But the magazine has tapped this vat before.

At that time, wine lovers could splurge for the $120 Killer Cabernets or any of the other eight monthly memberships.
