If I remember correctly, you can be as young as 18 to serve alcohol.

I am under age and drink in a bar every night, when I wake up in the morning with a strange girl in my bed I realize it's time to stop.

They really need to find another way to phrase that charge. A bartender mistaking a 19 year old for a 21 year old shouldn't be called "unlawfully dealing with a child".

Whats really sad about the whole situation is the owner will get slapped on the wrists and be business as usual in no time. this happens everywhere. they either get no reprimand or, if they are strangly closed, they re-open in a week under a different name!

Maybe the people drinking had fake id or used someone else's id. They didn't say whether or not the person was even asked for ID. They are wrong if they did not id them, but if they did and they showed valid believable proof, it's not their fault...it is the underage drinkers fault for putting them into that position

Of course this never happens in TX.
Sounds like a former NYer who is still trying to justify leaving, or someone who is jealous of NY as the greatest metro area in the world, despite it's flaws.

Of course everyone seems to be missing the point that the bar serves an area near a giant state university and underage drunk driving kills and maimes people. I was forced off the road on campus before one such idiot slammed head on into an innocent person. The drunk, not wearing a seat belt, had his brains ripped out of his skull and died. The innocent person, who had just graduated from high school, lost his legs.

What do the underaged drinkers get charged with?(or should we wait until they drive home and kill someone on the road by DUI?)

No jerk off, I still live in NY.

I am succesful, and like it here. But that does not mean that I dont think about leaving it sometimes.

Just that here, on this forum, I can speak with no regrets to the way I feel. With my job and position, I have to play it safe every day.

You can be 18 and bartend as long as there is someone 21 or older willing to assume the responsibility of the bartender. It is always the bartenders responsibility to check ID. The "doorman" will not be arrested, the bartender will. The only acceptable forms of ID are a NYS drivers license or non driver ID that is issued by DMV, a passport, or a military ID. If the patron is from another state, the owner of the establishment can request a BOLS book and it shows color photos of all the drivers licenses issued in the US. I have been bartending for 18 years and I have managed not to get arrested for serving anyone underaged. As for the owner of the establishment, he will fined by the State Liquor Authority, and those fines are not small!!.

Could also have been a sting. Happens a lot.

You mean to tell me the were people under 21 drinking at a bar in a college town? I am sure the bouncers turned down even the cute girls if their ID looked fake.
