When the Bruins threw down with an epic body count at their Stanley Cup celebrations at Foxwoods, the world was drawn not to the six-figure bottle of champagne: Armand de Brignac is so played out. Instead it was the solo Amstel Light, a beacon of moderation and taste in a storm of crapulence.
Amstel got in on it, starting an internet manhunt to find the presumably macho Bruin who placed the order. We ventured that it might be an assorted hanger-on, even floating the possibility of a lady of the night.
Shallon Lester, NY-based socialite, wrote this email to a few of her friends earlier today:
Here's the dirt on the "Lone Amstel" incident as it is heretofore known :)
My tweet: Uh sorry guys, it was me. Seriously. RT @nbc_sports: Which @NHLBruins ordered the lone #AmstelLight on the $156,000 tab?
I went to Foxwoods that weekend at the behest of the hotel publicists and basically it was me, my puck bunny friend Dani and 25 Bruins. Here's my blog recap on the weekend: http://shallononline.com/2011/06/21/the…
As for the Amstel, we were at Shrine (the nighclub inside Foxwoods) and Shawn Thornton was kind enough to pass the Stanley Cup full of Ace of Spades our way, but the champagne was warm and gross so I ordered a beer from the waitress. But if Amstel is keen on giving away beer, I think it should go to Jordan Caron. He was definitely the most excited to be in Lord Stan's presence and definitely definitely used it to try and get laid.
Over at her blog, Shallon tells more tales of the night. Summary: drinking a $100,000 bottle of champagne was gross. Drinking out of the Stanley Cup was gross. But an Amstel Light really hit the spot.
