Stopped by the Anchor pub in Salem yesterday while looking for a pint. They card everyone and only accept Mass. identification. Being from Michigan I dont have a Mass. form of id so no pint for me.
We did but it nothing else was really open. And they had some local Old Ale that looked really good. Gonna check out Salem Beer Works tomorrow though so I can quit bitching.People in the little, bitty states can get really paranoid about IDs. When you're an hour's drive from five other states, keep track of the variations can be a hassle. I've got a server's card in Oregon and there are five or six different driver's licenses, depending on when they were issued.
I would just get up and go somewhere else.
I haven't been carded in years. In fact, I was visiting my son in Indiana (just turned 21 in September), and we went out to dinner. We both ordered beers, and the waitress carded my son, but not me...Dammit...I must be getting old...
