All you can drink for $5

I guess I should let all you SE people know that on Fridays and sometimes Saturdays Midnight Slice pizza which is a little bit behind Tookies has a $5 dollar charge to get in and watch the band but you get free beer. I think its just stuff like Bud light, Miller lite etc. The pizza is great there though so try that out too!

They might not have their Liquor license yet so they can give away beer and wine I think. Tiataool is a bartender so he would know.

I've had many meetings with TABC Keep in mind even those officers unsure of some laws, in that, some are based upon officer discretion. Much like noise ordinances.

That being said, you are only allowed to comp (complimentary) 2 drinks per guest. It was "suggested" we utilize drink tickets to keep track of the # of drinks served.

More than public safety it is a tax issue. They want their $$ and they aren't stupid. The establishment has to pay tax on all liquor going in (thus going out) of the licencee.

So if you pay $5 (cover) and drink all night for free they aren't getting their $$ies.

Danny you are talking about Colorado and maybe here in Texas, so maybe they were in violation of laws. Obviously it goes on down here. Bottomless mimosas like Ivan mentioned. The problem is this is a cut throat business and people will call in on violations because it is unfair practice.

The "sampling" is a different deal. The distributor "buys" a bottle or a # of drinks from me. Then they get a tray and "sample." It is on them if they decide they would like to GIVE away multiple drinks to a guest. I can guarantee that if the distributor finds out they are "serving" intoxicated people, that would make them liable. The general rule is one not more than two per person. The rep theoretically wants to "sample" the largest # of guests, and as a manager, I would oversee such activity.

Just because it happens doesn't mean it isn't illegal. TABC is completely overwhelmed when it comes to enforcement. Just about every restaurant not fast food sells at least beer or wine. Then add in all the bars, clubs, caterers, liquor stores.... it just goes on.

Also what was the entrance fee? Were they giving away everything or just specific things?

It could be (say) Grey Goose came in and "donated" i.e. bought 2 cases for the establishment. Maybe the clubs traded the nights liquor sales in advertising. There are ways around it... but it is the "grey area" that I started with.
