The epic food fight from Animal House
Folks stopping by the Bloomington T.G.I. Friday's last night for a late-night bite were treated to a scene right out of Vince McMahon's imagination.

A little before 1 a.m. (who knew T.G.I.'s stayed open that late!), a huge melee broke out involving as many as 30 patrons. Seven were arrested for rioting and five were treated for injuries.

When officers arrived, there were people fighting both inside and outside the building in what has to be the craziest fight ever at an establishment known for... wait, what is T.G.I. Friday's known for?

The food fight to end all food fights broke out last night in Bloomington.
According to Bloomington police, the brawl began with two tables of customers giving each other "lipservice." That led to what must've been one of the most epic food fights in Minnesota history, which ultimately culminated in the patrons hitting each other with things that can do a lot more damage than breadsticks.

Nobody was seriously injured, but T.G.I.'s estimates it suffered about $1,500 in damages. That's a lot of salads.

We'll be sure to update if any video of the WWE-style rumble becomes available.

I wish I could have seen this unfolding before my eyes...

Having eaten at Friday's, I can understand the desire to assault people with many of their menu choices rather then consume them.

This is terribly written, it was not a food fight and people were seriously hurt.  Get your facts straight.

Why can't this ever happen when I am eating out?

I heard the fight involved professional lacrosse players from the Rochester Knighthawks. Anybody know anything about that?

Last time I went to Fridays, they "forgot" to cook my chilcken all the way through. Maybe I should have registered my complaint by hucking the food at the manager.

I wonder if the fight broke out over rumors that Lil' Wayne might have been there.

This is terribly written and includes misinformation.  Sadly we have to put up with reporting like this to get to the gems in the pages.

Someone doesn't know what "lip service" means.

TGIF does not have a Salad Bar...Ruby Tuesday yes - but not TGIF.

Undoubtedly, wait staff from next door Chevy's Fresh Mex were involved.

From Fox 9 -- "Items were thrown, including menus and food, which eventually led to the fight." Later in the same report -- "no one was seriously hurt."

Where are you getting your "facts"?

According to the Hennepin County jail roster, the individuals arrested have Ethiopian or Somali-sounding names.  I'm not being racist.  I'm stating an observation based on real evidence, and not an urge to say something racist.

The problem is the light rail.....the light rail brings the niggers to blomington...and when then when the niggers arrive, they start shit.

It was members of the Rochester Knighthawks.  The players involved were Cody Jamieson, Sid Smith, Travis Hill, Jordan Hall and Tyler Burton.

 HA- there were no athletes involved just a bunch of labourers fresh off their shift, on the piss and looking for trouble.

Well, we know it wasn't "diversity" because guns and drugs weren't found at the scene.......

I rewrote to downplay the salad angle. Ruby Tuesday, for some reason, was on the brain. Got my mediocre suburban chains mixed up!

Actually, I WAS thinking of Ruby Tuesday, but it does appear TGI Friday's has a salad bar, at least some of them. Do a Google search if curious (I'd link but comments w/links need to be reviewed by our moderator).

Of course they are black.  

The only people who couldn't tell that the violence was caused by blacks (just by reading the headline alone) are naive white-guilt do-gooder "progressive" libtards.

It was a Pro LaCrosse Players from Rochester New York. So, snobby rich kids who learned how to carry a ball in a basket.

Light rail doesn't go down to Highway 100, dipshit.
