The absolute worst and most disgusting part of this video is the fact that this is not a singular incident. Not in the least. One of the million jobs I’ve held in my lifetime was as a waiter at a banquet hall that was 5-star white-gloved service. We held Republican Party meetings with senators and large-scale weddings that went for $200+ a plate with helicopters and fireworks and brides on elephants (Indians). Yet, even with all of this place’s prestige and notoriety and otherwise fancy bullshit, I personally saw at least 3 fights just like this. How is that possible? Because women transform into insane people for their wedding.
Not to place all blame on the brides because it really ain’t all their fault, but their short fuse about a day that SHOULD be entirely about the love between them and their husbands causes everybody else to go berserk. And not to turn this into a nationality issue but of the 3 fights I witnessed while working all 3 were Italian weddings. One slick comment from drunk Anthony throws Uncle Chris into “protect his niece” mode, a punch gets thrown, then the next thing you know second cousin Mike and his boys are rolling up the doorman while the groom threatens to backhand the bride if she doesn’t get herself in check. TRUE STORY.
So yeah, this is a wild night and one of the guys died from a heart attack — but this ain’t nothing new. As long as there are weddings, alcohol, emotions, (and Italians) — there will be fights.
PS – And contrary to what kmarko says, my experiences were with central Jersey people, not Philly people.
PPS – Italians also tipped the best.
