Party Continues All Over Town for Champions!

Blackhawks team captain and MVP Jonathan Toews and 15 of his teammates arrived at Roof Friday night with the Stanley Cup and were joined at 12:45am by actors Vince Vaughn and Kevin James.
The teammates stood on the outdoor bar and passed the Cup from player to player as they sprayed the crowd of screaming fans with bubbly.
Teammates included Troy Brouwer, Adam Burish, Dustin Byfuglien, Brian Campbell, Ben Eager, Marian Hossa, Patrick Kane, Duncan Keith, Tomas Kopecky, Andrew Ladd, John Madden, Antti Niemi, Brent Seabrook, Patrick Sharp, Jonathan Toews and Kris Versteeg.
Various members of Roof’s staff, including Executive Chef Todd Stein—who considers himself a lifelong Blackhawks fan—plus GM Nick Kuhns and theWit's director of catering Shelene Coward, took photos holding the Cup with the players.

In addition to Roof, the Blackhawks—with Stanley Cup in tow—were all over town all weekend long, stopping off at their favorite dining spots and watering holes, including Bistro 110, Gibson's, Mercadito, The Pony, Rosebud on Rush, Sunda and Tavern on Rush (where incidentally 312DD and pals watched them win the championship!).
Here's NBCChicago.com's slideshow tour of everywhere The Stanley Cup was this weekend. And no offense to our other pro teams, but we looooove the Blackhawks' spirit.
I don't ever remember the Bears, Bulls or even White Sox allowing the Average Joe to get anywhere near their championship rings!
