Yeah, thanks OLCC I have volunteered at brew fests and all it takes to become a certified server is signing your name on a piece of paper saying you won't serve to drunk people.

I think it also depends on how big this event is and who is coming, but it only takes one person to screw it all up. I'd check first.

Well - like slot machines in bars - those are illegal also but every bar has them (and make $500 a month with ease).

That's basically it, but they still make you go through the class. I did it a couple months ago. Burned a whole Saturday.

I would recommend talking to TIPS as well. TIPS stands for Training for Intervention ProcedureS and I know the man who was in charge of training me (I needed it for work) was VERY informative on dramshoppe laws and liabilities in the eyes of the state and also in lawsuits...
