Gronk gonna Gronk: Pats tight end reportedly racks up $100k bar tab

It’s hard to imagine going to a bar and finishing the night with a six-figure tab. But, we all can’t be Rob Gronkowski.

According to TMZ, the New England Patriots star tight end and his crew had a fun weekend at Shrine nightclub at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut, where Gronk turned up shirtless (of course) with Flo Rida. The gossip site reported that Gronkowski and his group of about 20 people racked up a tab of $102,407. Just drinks, no luxury cars included in that price. TMZ published the itemized receipt and a PR rep at Shrine confirmed the receipt is legit.

How on earth do 20 guys, even if they’re all professional partiers like Gronk, run up $102,000 in alcohol? Well, you start with 160 bottles of champagne, according to TMZ. Bottle service at a club isn’t cheap; 15 bottles of Dom Perignon Rose cost Gronk and Co. $27,000. Then you add on things like 15 Grey Goose Magnum bottles of vodka ($10,400), 45 orders of Maker’s Mark bourbon ($540), 24 shots of Jim Beam Fire whiskey ($264) … it was a wild night, it seems. One would assume every guest at the club spent time at Gronk’s table, because it’s impossible for 20 dudes to each drink $5,120.35 worth of liquor by themselves in one night. We think. The tab was closed at 2:02 a.m. early Sunday morning, according to the receipt published by TMZ.

Gronkowski’s partying ways have never been an issue because he’s one of the best players in the NFL. Once Gronkowski’s play starts to slip you might hear criticism of his off-field life. Until then, we’ll marvel at how much fun one man can have when he’s not playing football.
