Road to Bruin

Stanley Cup winners party hearty

By John Chandler June 23, 2011

I’m not much of a hockey fan, but the Boston Bruins made a believer out of me. Yes, yes, they won the Stanley Cup, which caused the populace of Vancouver, British Columbia to freak out, set stuff on fire, and make out in the street. And that’s all well and good.

But the Bruins partied like Led Zeppelin’s road crew after the Game 7 victory, racking up a $156,679.74 bar tab at Foxwoods Nightclub in Mashantucket, Conn. The bottle of Ace of Spades "Midas" champagne ($100,000) was the big-ticket item, not to mention $525 for Jager Bombs, $5400 on Grey Goose, and $180 spent on Red Bull. Oh yeah, and the bill included a $6 Heineken Light. At least someone had the good sense to count calories. An athlete’s body is his livelihood, after all.

Sounds like the real winner was their server who walked away with a $24,869.80 tip. Dude, hockey rules.
