New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski seems to have a sixth sense for finding himself in the middle of a party. But since he does clock in at 6’6, 275-pounds, it wouldn’t be hard to believe that the parties find him.

Either way, the 26-year old Super Bowl champ found himself in Charleston over the weekend, posting up at a couple beachfront bars and even taking in a night on upper King Street Saturday night.

As with any dude who’s best known, aside from his on-the-field skills, for slamming back a few cold ones now and then, social media posts followed the Gronk all over the Charleston area. Starting at Blu on Folly Beach on Saturday and finishing up ‘working’ as a judge at Sunday’s Windjammer Bikini Bash, we found all the selfies and creepshots of #87 taken by those lucky enough to find themselves in his bro-aura. Even the RiverDogs wanted to put Gronk on the mound tonight, but it looks like the party took the early flight out this morning.
