Julius Peppers didn’t need to buy drinks for club patrons at Crescendo to win over his new town — but it didn’t hurt. The new Bears defensive end purchased 25 bottles of Perrier Jouet Fleur de Champagne ($350 per bottle) at the River North club and had them distributed by staff around 2:30 a.m. on Saturday — complete with sparklers. The crowd was told it was Peppers’ way of saying thanks for the warm welcome. Peppers, who signed a six-year, $91.5 million deal with the Bears Friday, celebrated his first night in Chicago as a Bear with two other people in a roped off area and ordered three bottles of Ace of Spades Rose for his table. Earlier that night, Peppers had dinner with Bears coach Lovie Smith and fellow Bears free agent signee Chester Taylor at Gibsons Steakhouse in the Gold Coast. — Chicago Tribune
