Rob Gronkowski's sensible and perfectly refined birthday festivities still featured a great deal of the Gronk hoopla we have come to expect.
The Patriots star tight end is now 24 years old, and we send him our well wishes, especially on the injury he continues to heal from. Busted Coverage found pictorial evidence that things were going fairly smooth for Gronk as he stepped ever closer to 30.
Here are just some images from a soiree that only Gronk could manage. It all goes down, as they state, at the Foxwoods Shrine Asian Kitchen & Lounge.
As it seems, Gronkowski has a big fan in someone who refers to themselves as Nicki II on Twitter.
It seems a day earlier, Gronk was trying out his mad skills at tending a bar rather than ordering from one, according to Busted Coverage.

OF COURSE Gronk is being very protective of his $53 million left arm. Yeesh. http://t.co/8OHK59VJBf2013-5-14 00:37:57
Of course, this is all just silly peripherals during what is fondly referred to as the Summer of Gronk. We expect the man who trains hard and plays harder to make a full recovery despite some scary news.
As The Boston Globe reported May 9, Gronkowski may have to have a fourth surgery on the fractured left forearm, a decision that will come shortly.
A league source said Wednesday night that a call will be made in two weeks whether to replace the second metal plate that was put in Gronkowski’s arm in January.
That is the timeline because that is when Gronkowski is scheduled to finish his antibiotic therapy.
As Busted Coverage notes, it certainly seems like Gronk is in the best of spirits. Then again, you cannot keep this man down, at least not when there is a great deal of partying to be done.
Happy Birthday to the NFL's resident party animal. We cannot wait for the season to start but are only slightly bummed the current festivities have to end.
