Our group just attended a seminar presented by ABC (Alcohol and Beverage Control) about civil and legal issues regarding serving wine in our tasting room. DON'T MESS WITH THE ABC. The guy was carrying a gun and told us that they can enter our premise anytime they want to inspect anything related to our business without a warrant. They can even enter our house, also without a warrant, since we have some records pretaining to our business in the house. How did we ever allow them to have these rights, I would like to know?
Anyway, we received lots of useful information. We will certainly be more careful carding people who look young. If one of us serves a drunk and he goes out and is involved in a fatality, we are liable. If someone under age is served in our facility and is involved in a fatality, WE ARE DOOMED. However, some people go too far. Gary and I were in an airport restaurant a while back and we were carded. That was rediculous. We are so far past 21 we can't even remember what it was like to be that young. Talk soon.
