The Kings celebrated with the Cup in some small Hermosa Beach bar

Not one, but two links to TMZ today. Fortunately, this one’s far less annoying than the earlier one.

According to the gossip website, the first stop the Los Angeles Kings made last night with the Stanley Cup was the North End Bar and Grill in Hermosa Beach.

If you’re wondering why that particular bar, the L.A. Times explained in a story last week:

Many of the players drink there, call patrons their neighbors and mingle freely at community events.

Last week, as the Kings were on the road to their first Cup victory, North End patron Jennifer Henriksen proudly pulled out her iPhone and showed off images of players celebrating at the bar a few weeks earlier.

“These boys are just real down-to-earth, solid people,” said Henriksen, better known as “Hockey Jen” to bar regulars. “We want to see them have the run of their lives…. Really, it couldn’t happen to a more solid, genuine, grounded group of guys.”

According to the Times, almost every single Kings player lives in one of Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, or Redondo Beach.

Must be hell.
