During WW II my uncle open a bar in Stapelton by the docks. The day before his insurance came through two destroyers pulled in. Well greed got the best of him so he open a day early. Sailors from both crews poured in. Within fifteen minutes the first punch was thrown. Within 30 minutes the places was a complete wreck. That has to be a record for the shortest opening/closing of a bar.
