Conversation on late October night outside Alpha Delta Phi brownstone on 114th St., between fraternity member and NYPD officer:
Cop: We've been getting noise complaints from neighbors about the band playing upstairs. It's time for you guys to shut the party down.
Member: OK. We're keeping the volume turned down as much as we can. The party's officially registered with the University. Security says we can go until 2AM.
Cop: You're out of luck. It's 2:06 AM. Go pull the plug.
Member: Nuh-uh..(smiles). It's daylight savings! It's only 1:06!
Cop wrinkles his brow, obviously frustrated, climbs into his squad unit with his partner, and drives away.
Member returns to house and turns up the amp volume.
