So naturally the Bruins decided a night on the town was in order after winning the Stanley Cup. Or perhaps several nights, but the night in question happened Saturday when a group of players went to SHRINE at the Foxwoods Resort Casino in New England, bringing Lord Stanley’s silver mug along for the ride following the team’s victory parade that afternoon.
The posse of Bruins included Tim Thomas, Zdeno Chara, Brad Marchand, Patrice Bergeron, Milan Lucic, Shawn Thornton, and a 19-year-old Tyler Seguin. The result was the $156,679.74 bar tab you see below. Meh, that’s about even with the average Wednesday night HOTH outing.
The items reflect standard high class indulgence for a group of rich hockey players, the kind of rich hockey players who laugh at the price tag of a $100,000 bottle of Ace of Spades Midas champagne, the largest bottle of luxury champagne in existence. The 30L mountain of alcohol is regularly consumed by high rollers like Jay-Z and George Clooney, but on this night it had to settle for Chara and Thornton. Thanks to Marchand the Bruins didn’t take full advantage of that premium price either, as there are reports of the feisty forward standing on the bar and showering the crowd. Thankfully, no one made it rain.
Aside from the high class bubbly, two other items stand out. Whoever had the idea to go with Bud Light as the beer of choice, and order 136 of those watered-down frothy disappointments should be barred from the dressing room.
Also, men of true grit and honour can handle their booze without $268 worth of water.
Huge stick tap to Barstool Sports Boston, which has other pictures from the Saturday night Bruins shenanigans. Barstool’s gallery proves once again that a hockey players’ first instinct in the initial stages of inebriation is to go shirtless and dance on the bar.
