Default No more '18 to party, 21 to drink' in Atlanta...

BAR that sell more booze than food.
ALL Venues, and Clubs will be fined at least 1000$ for each persons under 21 in the club. This will be law on MONDAY.
Expect this to really mess up shows and tickets at many local venues.

Under-21 crowd shut out

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Published on: 10/18/07

The days of nightclubs hosting "18 to party, 21 to drink" events may soon come to an end in Atlanta.

The Atlanta City Council unanimously passed an ordinance Monday prohibiting anyone younger than 21 from entering or working at businesses where alcohol is consumed. It should go into effect next week.

Councilwoman Cleta Winslow, who wrote the ordinance, said she is troubled by the city's law that allowed 18-year-olds to work in businesses where people are drinking. It does not affect restaurants where alcohol is served, nor supermarkets or convenience stores.

Winslow worries about teenagers drinking in strip clubs or bars and endangering themselves.

"Since a person under 21 can't drink in a nightclub, they should not be in these establishments," said Winslow, chairwoman of the council's public safety committee.

Greg Pridgeon, chief of staff to Mayor Shirley Franklin, said she would not veto the ordinance. Pridgeon said Franklin was concerned that the old rules allowed teenagers to drink and harm themselves or others.

"It seemed a little inconsistent you had people [under 21] working in these establishments and people who were patrons having to show ID to get in," Pridgeon said.

Winslow said teenagers working in strip clubs are more likely to fall into prostitution or taking drugs.

"We need to help our young ladies feel like they have some self-worth," said Winslow, 55, who said she worked three part-time jobs while in college. "We need to be more about protecting our young people. Even at 18 because the mind is not as mature at that level."

Pete Carver, an employee at the House Nightclub in Underground Atlanta, disagreed with Winslow's thinking.

"A lot of 25-year-olds act like they're still in high school," said Carver, 31.

Carver described the ordinance as the latest attempt by local government to "micromanage" the area's nightlife. DeKalb County commissioners are considering rolling back last call on most days from 3:55 a.m. to 2 a.m. After a string of fatal shootings in the Buckhead party district, the Atlanta City Council in 2003 ordered bars to stop serving alcohol at 2:30 a.m. and to close their doors at 3 a.m.

Although the House Nightclub does not permit anyone in under 21, Carver said decisions about age limits should be left to business owners.

"The city can't make the best judgment for every individual nightclub," he said.

At Goosebumps, a strip club in downtown Atlanta, the management said it would comply with the ordinance, although it has some dancers younger than 21. The club requires dancers older than 21 to wear plastic wristbands to prevent anyone younger from being served alcohol.
