Palace Saloon Fights Underage Drinking

The Palace Saloon is dedicated to fighting underage drinking in our establishments and in our community.

The Palace Saloon will offer up to a $100 cash reward to anyone who provides information that leads to the arrest or ejection by law enforcement for underage drinking.

Fernandina Beach, FL – The Palace Saloon has noticed an increase in underage persons possessing fraudulent identification for the purpose of procuring alcohol within our establishment. In an effort to deter potential underage drinkers and their accomplices, The Palace Saloon is offering a cash reward of up to $100 to anyone who provides information that leads to the arrest of any underage persons attempting to gain entry or those within the establishment engaging in illegal consumption of alcoholic beverages.

Cash rewards will be paid in cash at the time of the arrest. In rare cases where no arrest is made and the suspected underage drinker is ejected from the premises a lesser cash reward may still be paid dependent upon the circumstances. Arrests are at the sole discretion of the responding police officer.

There are numerous countermeasures that can be implemented to address this issue. It is our hope that this policy will deter all would-be underage drinkers. Working to restrict access to alcohol by those under the legal purchase age must be the goal of our entire community. Individuals under the legal purchase age must understand that the consequences of underage drinking could be life threatening.

This policy will extend to Sheffield’s at the Palace and Uncle Charlie’s as well as The Palace Saloon.

    As a parent and a patron I appreciate the initiative! Part of the growing up process is learning to obey the laws of the land. If you don't agree with the current legal age of 21 for alcohol consumption, then you should live somewhere else (whether the law should be changed to reflect the success of some European rule is not my point, that would be a different article entirely)! My only argument against the current 21 year age limitation would be for active duty military to be exempt! If you can die for your country, your country should let you purchase an adult beverage if you want to drink one!

    I can appreciate your appreciation for an underage drinking ban appreciating the laws of the land. No, i'm not going to compare with other countries as you are right that it is society that determines what is legal or what is not, but you do leave me an opening that you created by stating that if you're old enough to die for your country as a military man, you should be exempted.

    Well, “what's good for the goose is good for the gander” I believe the saying is in line that you cannot define a line of acceptance if the rule is defined by absoluteness. While in an other article today the “having your cake and eat it too” was already used, I believe that both sayings are appropriate. But anyway, the fact that youngsters go to extreme action to obtain “an older then I am” piece of paper should make you wonder where the fault really lies that such laws are required.

    The more restrictions you put on life the more “rebellion and terrorists” you create. The tighter the leash the harder the “dog” will pull to get away from the leash. That is the point when society goes off a cliff since policing now becomes a parenting task while in all honesty it should have been a parenting task all along to instill such values as “taking responsibility” for your life's actions. It is possible and legal to put a 15yr old teen who is incapable of deciding that alcohol is not wise to be consumed at an early age, behind the steering wheel of a car, responsible for hundred's of lives that are flashing by when driving any stretch, and that is considered “responsible enough”.

    Somewhere the following logic escapes me: “Old enough to harm other people, yet not old enough to experience a hangover”. What do we tell our toddlers … Don't touch the stove because it is hot… and what do they do?

    You're Right. Let the service men drink if they want to!
