The 2014 Stanley Cup champions, Los Angeles Kings, celebrated their recent victory at Michael and Jenna Morton's newest hotspot restaurant, CRUSH eat, drink, love at MGM Grand on Thursday night in Las Vegas.
MGM President Scott Sibella, who was also dining at CRUSH, greeted the Los Angeles Kings as they arrived. The hockey pros enjoyed a mixture of CRUSH's specialty cocktails such as the Crush the Mule and Piña-Pirinha as well as Fireball shots at the restaurant's bar before super fans rushed over when the Stanley Cup Trophy arrived to the eatery. The players mingled and took photos with fans by the iconic cup before they were seated in the private dining room inside The Bodega. The champions indulged in the tasting menu including Lamb Sirloin, Roasted Cauliflower, Ricotta Gnocchi, Sea Scallops Benny, Octopus Ceviche, Grilled Salmon and the 32-ounce Braised Short-Rib prepared by Executive Chef Billy DeMarco.
