Default I'm sorry sir you've had too much...

Ever had that happen to you? I walked up the stairs in a restaurant where I was hosting my daughters birthday dinner kind of badly since my legs were shot. Last weekend I ran a 24 hour race so my legs and ankles are a little wobbly! The manager sees me stumble and approaches, says I've had too much to drink and they wouldn't serve me any more beer. I was somewhat taken aback but since the one I had was not up to my standards - I brew damn good beer of course - I said fine and went off to the restroom.

Then while I was away from the table he says the same thing to the *whole* party. My wife tells him that I was walking a little more delicately since my quads were shredded and my body generally beat up from last weekends race. I came back to the table and now everyone was weirded out.

He apologizes and gets me two beers to compensate.

My wife was outraged. My daughter was amused, I was embarrassed. And sort of amused also. But the evening was not quite so celebratory after that weird and unnecessary interaction.

Anyway thanks for listening!

Cheers!
Steve da sleeve

I have never had that happen, and then one night after 2 rogue double dead guys and a few other drinks I closed my tab and left.

That night I crashed my car.


Bartenders who do not cut people off, ARE held accountable, and should exercise their right and not only on those who "look wobbly".

I can hold my liquor and beer, but what I had that night kicked my a$$.

Yes I was fine, yes the bartender lost his/her (not im not saying who or what city/bar, not my home town) license and was fined/fired.

I did not receive a citation. I also no longer EVER take a sip at a bar and drive.

I homebrew and snooze it off on the couch.

While I don't believe in preventative crimes, it sounds like you ****ed up and are blaming others. Had you actually hurt someone else, which would clearly be a crime, the bartender had nothing to do with it.

So you got drunk as **** and cost someone their job? Enjoy that tasty karma. Should be fun.

At least quit drinking. If you're going to wreck other peoples' lives with your drinking, give it up

And leave the homebrewing community, we have no place for you

To be fair, bartenders are required by law to recognize excessive levels of dbaggery, and not serve them

Nevermind, that almost sounds like I'm giving this guy an out

I don't usually go to bars. But a few weeks ago I was in one, got to talking to a guy who had also roughnecked on Oklahoma oil rigs years ago, and drank three double Jack Daniels on an empty stomach. When I ordered another one the bartender told me he was sorry, but I'd already had enough.

A sign that he may have been right: my immediate reply was, "well, !@#$ you too, Jack!" Not my usual style at all; normally I try to at least act like I have a little class.

I think he did me a favor, and I'll apologise if I'm ever in there again. But I probably won't be; it was a good reminder of why I started staying out of bars to begin with.
