June 25, 2013 | CHICAGO -- The after-party roared on until well after dawn for the victorious Chicago NHL Blackhawks and some die-hard fans.

Hours after returning from its 3-2 win over the Boston Bruins, the team gave awed fans a close-up look at the gleaming Stanley Cup on Tuesday, hauling its prize around to bars and restaurants around the city for the second time in four seasons.

Just like in 2010, the Blackhawks' first stop was at Harry Caray's in suburban Rosemont, where more than a thousand fans were waiting before sunrise in hopes the team would again use the Italian steakhouse to kick off its party. Players took turns lifting the trophy above their heads as fans went wild, still barely able to fathom the two third-period goals just 17 seconds apart that gave the Hawks the win.

This morning, the Stanley Cup arrived in the South Loop at Scout's (1301 S. Wabash).  The scene was incredible with fans stalking the Cup and rushing toward their chance to celebrate the victory with the team.  If you aren't following the cup in person, you can follow it on Twitter @wheresthecup  or you can check out the google map.  Click Here

We know the Cup will make its way north, but will it come to Hyde Park?

If so, we want to know about it and we want to spread the word so that South Side Chicagoans can show their love too.

Let us know if you find out.  @HydePark53
