As one of the NFL's most prominent partiers, Rob Gronkowski is no stranger to wild nights. But what he did last weekend has to be one of the greatest splurges by any athlete at any bar, ever. The Patriots tight end partied with Flo Rida and his crew at Shrine at Connecticut's Foxwoods Resort and Casino, and reportedly purchased over $100,000 of alcohol for the night. Take a look at some of the videos the casino posted from the rager:

According to TMZ, which obtained a photo of the receipt, Gronk and 20 friends ran through $102,407 worth of drinks at the nightclub. The bulk of that figure was a whopping 160 bottles of champagne, including 18 bottles of Ace of Spades Rose ($1k each) and 15 bottles of Dom Perignon Rose ($1,800 a pop). If that wasn't enough, they also purchased 45 orders of Marker's Mark, 16 bottles of Grey Goose, and 3 bottles of Don Julio 1942. In total, the group spent $27,079 on liquor, $74,950 on wine and champagne, and $478 on non-alcoholic beverages (including 20 sugar-free Red Bulls).
TMZ claimed to have spoken with a PR rep from the casino who confirmed the tab, and suggested that Foxwoods "most likely" footed the bill for Gronk's wild night. But according to the tight end himself, the receipt is fake. Gronk posted a photo on Twitter saying that he would donate $100,000 before dropping it on booze:
