Predators fan explains his $1,100 bar tab that includes 93 Coors Lights

One Predators fan ended up with an impressive bar tab after Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final, and it’s something else.

93 Coors Lights

This HAD to be buying a round for the entire bar, otherwise everyone in this party of eight had 18.6 beers each, judging from the check.

1 short sleeve t-shirt

Maybe it’s just me, but I think when you drop $900 at a single table they should just throw the shirt in for free.

No ribs anywhere

You’re at a place called “Rippy’s Ribs” and nobody ordered ribs? What’s up with that?

That “Sausage and cheese platter” sounds good though ...

I like these things.

One $7 Blue Moon

That is a lot for a Blue Moon. I don’t have any other commentary.

An 18.2 percent tip.

This is an oddly specific number, because the tip amount was oddly specific. This is someone who clearly used a calculator to wind up at $169.73, and yet they went for 18.2 percent instead of 18.

I caught up with David Hudson, who ran up this impressive bar tab, who told me more about how it came about.

“I flew in from Madison, WI, and I met a buddy that flew in from Brooklyn, NY. We both moved away from Nashville about 12 years ago, and we have remained loyal Predators fans. Even though we didn't have tickets to the game, we wanted to be in Nashville for the first Stanley Cup Final. We met up with our buddies who still live in town. Wanting to watch the game in a bar downtown, we got to Rippys at 11 am, and stayed until it ended.”

Five people primarily contributed to the incredible bar tab, but really it took a village to drink it all.

“We drank the majority. The guy who posted the Reddit account introduced himself as Chuggy Bear, Chuggy for short. We got tagged with someone else's Yazoo Pale Ale and Blue Moon.The Patron shots were shared with the table next to us. We never ordered a round for another group, but since we had been getting buckets of Coors Light, we were more than happy to share.”

Of course the big question: How did he feel the morning after their big night?

“I felt pretty good Sunday morning, and I feel great today after another Predators win.”

That’s living your best life.
