A local Massachusetts restaurant called Smokey Bones Bar & Fire Grill will face a five-day suspension for a liquor violation they received after serving alcohol to minors. This violation will be the second that they faced in the past two years.
Although the restaurant has an ID system that is issued to detect fake IDs, an employee failed to follow protocol which lead to the serving of alcohol to two minors. These two patrons used fake IDs to purchase alcohol and another guest at the restaurant snapped a picture and sent it to police.
To the credit of Smokey Bones, they immediately fired the employee who failed to follow the proper ID checking procedure and will now have a security guard out front who will check everyone’s ID as soon as they arrive.
Don’t lose your liquor license. Start using an ID scanner regularly to keep underage drinkers out.
