Boston Bruins’ historic $156,000 bill after winning the Stanley Cup resurfaces

A photo resurfaced 11 years ago showing a jaw-dropping bar tab worth over $150,000 has sparked outrage online.

On June 15, 2011, the Boston Bruins defeated the Vancouver Canucks, 4-0, in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals at Rogers Arena, ending a 39-year championship drought. As a result, the Bruins decided to party.

They celebrated at the Shrine nightclub at Foxwoods Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut, and ended up downing over $156,000 worth of drinks in one night.

The photo of the tab was posted multiple times on social media, including Reddit, by a user called 5_Frog_Margin, who also added a caption explaining who it was: “Bruins bar tab of Boston from Foxwoods Casino after winning the Stanley Cup 11 years ago.”

The post has garnered a lot of attention among Redditors, receiving over 46,300 upvotes and 2,491 comments since Tuesday.

The average base salary for a bar staff member in the United States, according to Indeed, is around $16.20.

While the receipt contained dozens of drinks, including liqueurs, beers, wines and soft drinks, most were due to the purchase of the rare 30-litre bottle of Armand de Brignac champagne called the Ace bottle. of Spade “Midas”. , which alone costs $100,000.

Most users found the prices of some regular drinks outrageous. YounomsayinMawfk said, “$100,000 for a bottle?! [does this bottle] cure cancer?!” And HobbesNJ added, “$300 for a bottle of Captain Morgan’s? It’s criminal.”

One user, Grimjacx, pointed out, “That guy going for a Heineken light and a glass of champagne comp.” And EricJF50 replied: “I believe it was Zdeno Chara. He had a ridiculous commitment to his training regimen. I believe he had 1 light beer and a chicken wing to celebrate. Can’t remember where I read that might be wrong.”

DanaThamen explained, “This bottle is 30 litres, which is 40 regular sized bottles. Still, that would be 2500 per regular 750ml bottle.” And tysoncrosby21 said, “$2500 a bottle of premium champagne with table service is pretty normal.”

Another user, woozlewuzzle29, joked, “I bet this person wanted to split the tab equally. I had the $100,000 bottle, you had the $6 Blue Moon, so…it’ll be 50 $003 each.” Illegible added, “we all had this friend” And FlyingDragoon said, “But bro, you tasted some of mine so you owe me at least half of it.”

Another user, djchefdaddy, commented, “Shout out to the guy who ordered two Coors Lights from an open bar.” And brown_burrito joked, “He was watching his calories.”

And some thought the bill wasn’t even that expensive. IMovedYourCheese said: “$156,000 is still a pretty low number considering it will be a billionaire paying the tab (celebrating the fact that his investment has increased significantly in value due to the win).”
