Tam O'Shanter in Sylvania
hosts hundreds of hockey games and other youth events, but the facility got a
black mark on its record Thursday night after getting caught selling beer to a
The bust was part of a
sweep by the Ohio Department of Public Safety (ODPS). Seven bars and carry-outs
were checked using an underage informant.
"Our goal is to get
complete compliance," said Raymond Rodriguez of the ODPS. "Doesn't matter how
many places we visit, our goal is zero."
The informant visited the
Tam O'Shanter Loft and was served by a bartender.
"No ID was checked. The
bartender did not ask for age. The exchange of alcohol for money was done,"
The bartender and Tam O'Shanter
were both cited for furnishing and selling beer to a person under 21.
The Sylvania Area Joint
Recreation District oversees the facility. The executive director promises
change to prevent another embarrassing, illegal sale. Those may include a
scanner for drivers licenses and a review of bartender training. There will
also be an internal investigation.
"It is something we've
always prided ourselves on," said John Pristash, of the Sylvania Area Joint
Recreation District. "We're youth-oriented and adult-oriented, but we always
try to provide constructive, leisure recreational programs."
The ODPS says it will continue
its crackdown on underage alcohol sales.
