The Boston Bruins "celebrated on Saturday morning in the streets of Boston with their championship parade, but then headed to the SHRINE at Foxwoods that night and racked up an insane $156,679.74 bar tab."

A copy of their tab :rockstar::rockstar:

I hope that $100,000 bottle of champagne served the whole team.

At least the server(s) got tipped $25,000 (or should it have been more)?

Errrr....I trust no one drove home.

It looks like the establishment tacked on an automatic 20% "service charge." I'd be thrilled to get a tip like that. Of course, the establishment is required to withhold income taxes if that is indeed a gratuity.

I'd like to see what a $100,000 bottle of champagne tastes like. :eek:

I was listening to a Boston radio station that talked about this. Apparently there are only 4 such bottles in the world. The DJ joked that it probably tastes like Asti Spumanti :)

Apparently it's a 30L bottle. That'll do it. :lol:

The Mavericks also had a 3 foot plus bottle of champagne for $90K (http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/blog/ball_dont_lie/post/Mark-Cuban-will-pay-for-your-110-000-bar-tab-A?urn=nba-wp4996)for which Mark Cuban picked up the tab (and left a $20K tip) after they won the NBA title.

I would have quietly passed on the champagne. I'm not particularly PC, but it just seems so stupid. What's a glass, $2,000? Maybe if it made me 10 years younger. :slinkaway

Do More Expensive Wines Taste Better? Evidence from a Large Sample of Blind Tastings (http://www.wine-economics.org/workingpapers/AAWE_WP16.pdf)


Individuals who are unaware of the price do not derive more enjoyment from more expensive wine. In a sample of more than 6,000 blind tastings, we find that the correlation between price and overall rating is small and negative, suggesting that individuals on average enjoy more expensive wines slightly less. For individuals with wine training, however, we find indications of a positive relationship between price and enjoyment.

I sure hope those hockey players have had a lot of wine training. :summer:
