After shocking fans with his partying antics, Rob Gronkowsi has taken the second hit for his Super Bowl party.
The bar tab from Las Vegas did not stay in Vegas. It is now public information.
How much booze can a tight end chug? Perhaps the high prices and inflation provide us with a distorted view of flatulence and bloating.
Gronk spent nearly $10,000 for his night of revelry. It rivals the great playboys of history. Old King Farouk would party weekly, but could not swallow such a tab. Henry VIII knew how to make his gout act up, but taxes never reached the exalted price Gronk has hit.
XS is the name of the club where the excess hits the fan of Gronk.
The waitstaff will voice no complaints. The tip was $1400 for mostly liquids and not one required intravenous.
Prices like $11 for a bottle of water is usually a cost that you find in the local hospital. We dread to think what Gronk had to pay the next day for two aspirin from room service.
"Yo soy fiesta" indeed.
This week Gronk is wearing a tank-top (what else) that provides a lime green message: "Sorry for Partying" though we suspect the club owners are still applauding his big appetite.
You get what you pay for in life, and Gronk has run up a bar tab-and he is more than willing to pay because it has provided us a momentary escape from a world too much with us.
