LAS VEGAS - The Boston Bruins' post-Stanley Cup parade party is already taking on legendary proportions.

It’s hard not to when there is a $156,679.74 bar tab involved.

Thing is, while it appears all those drinks were served, many were comped by the SHRINE nightclub at Foxwoods Casino, including a 30-litre, $100,000 bottle of champagne. So, while the tab seems monstrous, the exact figure the Bruins entourage, which might have numbered 50 people, shelled out isn’t known.

With the prices paid in a bar for a bottle of hootch, keep in mind it doesn’t take long for a tab to get in the area of what a house costs.

According to the picture of the tab making the rounds on the Internet (sixteenwins.com did a great graphic), here are some of the highlights:

• 30-litre bottle of Ace of Spades Midas Champagne, $100,000 (Comped by the club owners).

• Nine bottles of Grey Goose vodka $5400 (Tribute to the goose egg Tim Thomas threw at Canucks in Game 7)

• Four bottles of Crown Royal $1200 (Nice Canadian touch)

• Three bottles of Captain Morgan $900 (Did they all pose with their leg up on an imaginary fallen Sedin?)

• One bottle of Croc Red $350 (Somebody’s always got be different)

• One bottle of Johnny Walker Black $350 (Could have called it Johnny Boychuk Black as a tribute)

• 26 bottles of champagne $1280 (The really cheap stuff, apparently)

• 35 Jager bombs $525 (Funny, the Bruins aren’t one of the teams interested in Jaromir)

• 16 Red Bulls $90 (Gotta get that second wind; celebrating a Cup win is hard work)

• 16 Sugar free Red Bulls $90 (Gotta watch that waistline; training camp is only 90 days off)

• 135 Bud Lights $680 (Supporting an NHL sponsor)

• Two Coors Light $10 (Water wasn’t available)

• One Heineken Light $6 (Please. Has to be a wife/girlfriend, huh?)
