Bruins Rack Up $156K Bar Bill At Foxwoods

BOSTON (CBS) – The Boston Bruins have taken very few breaks in celebrating their Stanley Cup Championship since last Wednesday’s Game 7 victory.

But no party appears to be bigger than the one they threw Saturday night at Shrine night club at Foxwoods.

Immediately after the Bruins celebrated with millions of fans at the rolling rally through Boston, the entire team took off for the Connecticut casino for even more fun. Tim Thomas, Zdeno Chara, Patrice Bergeron, Milan Lucic and Brad Marchand were all there, just to name a few, and made sure the party extended out to thousands of fans at the night club.

Being the generous champions they are, the Bruins racked up a $156,000 bar bill which included a very rare 30 liter bottle of Ace of Spades “Midas” champagne. The bottle alone cost over $100,000. Only six are in existence. Well, now five…

What better way to drink the rare beverage than from Lord Stanley’s Cup?

The team passed the massive bottle around from player to player and then took a few swigs from the Cup trophy.

When no more bubbly remained, each team member signed the bottle. It will be on display at High Rollers Lucky Lanes and Lounge and raffled off at a later date to benefit the Bruins foundation.

      You guys are missing the math. The total bill included a 20% tip and the tax. Now, legally they have to figure the tip based on the pre-tax amount. So take $156,679.74 – (tip) $24,869.80 – (tax) $7,450.94 = (Actual Bar Bill) $124,358.26. Now, multiply $124,358.26 by 20% = $24,871.52. Take those two numbers and add the $7,450.94 tax and you get $156,680.85. My numbers a buck more than what the bill was but what’s a dollar on a 156k. That means if there were 8 bartenders/waitresses working they each went home with $3,108.94 each, not including all the other people in the bar. In addition they had one Hell of a night with stories to tell their grandchildren someday. On top of that, if I were a betting man I would guess the guys had a little cash in their pockets and threw the waitresses a few extra bucks. Either way, who really cares they Atleast paid 20% and THEY JUST ACCOMPLISHED A LIFE LONG DREAM BY WINNING THE STANLEY CUP AND COULD AFFORD A 156K BAR TAB. THEY DESERVE IT AND YOU OR I WOULD DO THE SAME THING! THANK YOU BRUINS!
