After the Boston Bruins won their first Stanley Cup in 39 years, making Boston the definitive titletown of the country (on the heels of the Sox, Pats and Celtics) you knew there was going to be a party. What you didnâ€™t know was that there was going to be a receipt.
On the 18th of the month, right after the duck boat parade through the streets of beantown, the team hit Connecticutâ€™s own Foxwoods Casino for a night of debauchery. The result? How about a bar tab of $156,679 (tip included, to the tune of $25k)?
$100,000: 30 liter, yes 30 liter, bottle of Ace of Spades Brut “Midas” champagne â€“ enough said
$4,000: 4 bottles Moet champagne â€“ pricey, but not as ridiculous
$680: 136 Bud Lights â€“ must have been the Canadians
$525: 36 Jager Bombs â€“ must have been the Euros
$300: 1 bottle Bacardi â€“ there is price gouging, and then there is price gouging
$6: 1 bottle Corona â€“ just so that every bottle of booze in the joint was accounted for
One thing to realize here is that they didnâ€™t throw a party for all of downtown â€“ this was just for the team. With 26 guys on the roster, that comes to about $6k a headâ€¦ but after 39 years, well worth it.
Do you see anything on the receipt worth calling out?
