S. Side Wins Bar Bet With Detroit

June 15, 2009

The Pens’ big comeback in the Stanley Cup Final helped a South Side bar avoid some humiliation and turn the tables on its counterpart in Detroit.


It didn’t look good for Carson City Saloon when the Penguins fell behind 2-0 and 3-2 in the seven-game series. But the Pens stormed back to win the final two games against Detroit and take the cup back to Pittsburgh.


Under the terms of a bet, The Rock On 3rd in Royal Oak, Mich., has to hang a Penguins jersey outside for an entire day and send a picture of it to Carson City.


The Rock on 3rd also has to send Carson City a case of Stroh’s, Bell’s and Founder’s, plus a round of ribs and pizza.


If the Red Wings had won, Carson City would have been forced to give up a case of Iron City, IC Light and Yuengling, plus a round of pierogies and kielbasa.
