Donald and Hillary. Ali and Frazier. Ahab and Moby.

Better make room –a padded room–for the Morristown Council and the Iron Bar in the Antagonists Hall of Fame.

They’ve been grappling for years. The combat continued Tuesday, when Robert C. Williams, lawyer for the Iron Bar and its sudsy South Street offspring, Revolution, implored town officials to let Revolution stay up late, like all the grownup taverns.

He’s been making essentially the same plea since Revolution opened in 2014. A judge agreed with him that early closing times imposed on the beer hall just aren’t fair.

But the council, which for years has fielded public complaints about collateral damage from densely packed downtown watering holes, has proven a harder sell.

So pour yourself a tall one and enjoy this latest video episode of Bar Wars:
