Location: 180 Central Park South; more specifically in the New York Athletic Club pub, the Tap Room.

Date: Two Thursday ago, around midnight.

Dress Code: Jackets mandatory until Friday at 5 p.m., when they become merely optional for the weekend. (All five brawlers were in full compliance, reports the Times. In full suits, in fact)

Occasion for Fight: “Over a woman,” Sergeant Kenneth Monahan told the Times.

Caliber of Fight: A “nondiscriminatory ragematch” and “the best fight I’ve ever seen,” said one bystander quoted on WallStreetJackass, a blog that covers this kind of thing.
