I have been in Main St. bar a few times out with some friends and have noticed underage girls drinking. It is just annoying, I know what it is like to be underage, I waited too, I am 25, it wasn't that long ago for me to wish I could have some drinks at the bar with friends. They don't seem to card anyone that walks through the door, and have watched people of age buy a beer and hand it to underage girls with the bartender watching. This needs to stop, it's scary they are on the road after leaving there. If I were bartending, I'd be carding everyone, the extra dollar is not worth the fines they could face.

I stop in there pretty much every weekend and know most that walk through there. I have never seen an underage individual in there one time.
It's just some drunk trying to bash on a bar that they got kicked out of.

It is an ex boyfriend about to get his name posted...get over her. She doesn't drink in there, they don't serve under age people, she comes in to play play pool with her new boyfriend. Dude, I feel sorry for you, but move on, you are making a fool out of yourself when you talk to people and then post on here.

Actually I am a girl. I am not a drunk and I don't go in there enough to even know the owner. I am not venting, I wanted to know if anyone else saw underage people drinking there. I know what I saw. Maybe I'll just report it to the police and they can send in undercover underage people and then they'll get the fine they deserve.

You are right about the fact that it is very scary these underage people are being served, and then driving after the fact. There is a age limit for a reason

Main street is one bar that doesnt need to "make a buck" by serving minors
Since you rarely go in there, maybe you should check out the other bars
I think you would be Snitching on alot of them. I am not by any means condoning underage drinking. Just stand by what you say. Undercover kids frequent all bars. Main St. Included But I'm sure the police department will appreciate you telling them how to do their job

An of age can pose as a minor. But the police deptarment cant be responsable for the liability of a child.

You are wrong. They can take a minor in with them and see if they will serve. Ask your old friend who used to own a bar. It happened to her. They use trickery. They wait for a relief bartender and pretend that they have already been carded.
Fantastic

I have been going to Mainstreet for 20+ years and I must say that Paul runs a pretty tight ship. It's funny that you say Mainstreet deserves a fine. Why or how does someone, who has only been in the bar a couple of times, know just exactly what mainstreet deserves? You know what I find annoying when I go to mainstreet??? Yep you guessed it!!! 25 year olds who don't know how to behave.

This is true. They do set bars up using minors. It's total entrapment. The real b.s. thing about it is alot of times they use minors that look of age or older.

I always did my job and carded. Thanks for your concern, sweetie. I never said I got in trouble. I just don't agree with the way they set up the underage stings. It's entrapment.
