$2-million price drop kicks in

Russell Weiner, the man behind Rockstar, the energy drink that shoots a 200-milligram bolt of caffeine into your system per bottle, has listed his 4,414-square-foot home just above the Sunset Strip at $2,995,000.

That bolt must have hit Weiner right in the noggin; he knocked $2 million off his original asking price for the contemporary-style, four-bedroom, four-bathroom home, according to the MLS. The kitchen was completely remodeled, there are hardwood floors, a built-in theater, and new doors and windows. The home has city views, three fireplaces and an elevator. Weiner, who founded and is chief executive of Rockstar Inc., a leader in the energy drink obsession, has gotten plenty of celebrity and sports figure endorsements for his products. He is the son of conservative radio talk show host Michael Savage. In 1998, Weiner unsuccessfully ran for a seat in the California State Assembly.

Mauricio Umansky of Hilton & Hyland, Beverly Hills, has the listing.
