#Britain’s 300 Year Old #AscotRace Marred by Drunken Brawl in Stands Over Woman: #VanityFair

You all know about the Royal Ascot horse race in the United Kingdom, the one the Queen herself attends in a big hat and everyone rich sits around and pretends to be bored by the race itself? Yeah, sales about that: apparently serving booze to the fans is making it a little more “interesting” according to Vanity Fair:

A group of eight grown men, seemingly friends, got into a drunken dispute over a 20-something blonde. One minute they were chatting next to the Victorian bandstand, and the next they were rolling around on the ground in a brawl that involved chair legs, a £98 bottle of Laurent Perrier, and various members’ being bitten and kicked.
