This has got to be the greatest Outback Steakhouse ever. Usually, as a minor, I was stuck having to use someone else’s ID or count on the fact that the waiter was to careless, to serve me alcohol; And this was when I was 20-years-old. This 4-year-old either looked much older than she appeared or the person serving her had some issues that need to be worked out.
Outback restaurants have apologised after a four-year-old girl was served a vodka and peach schnapps slushy that she was told was non-alcoholic.
Kelly Kerwin said that as her family waited to be seated in the restaurant in Mason, Ohio, a waitress offered her daughter the drink in a small cup.
‘My sister asked if there was alcohol in them and she said no, so we all took one and the kids had a couple,’ said Mrs Kerwin.
And how on earth did these adults not realize they were ingesting alcohol? Unless they were absolute lushes, I don’t see how their taste buds could have been immune to even the slightest amount of alcohol. Mine? That’s a completely different story. I would have downed 6 of those bad boys before determining that my 4-year-old was sloshed out of their mind.
Ironically, this isn’t the first time this happened! There is another chain restaurant that has royally fucked up and sold alcohol to a minor under the age of 5: Applebees. And I’m sorry, but whoever worked at this chain and gave this child the delicious margarita definitely deserves some recognition. The KIDS meal was served with a margarita to a 15-month-old boy, who, quite frankly, was acting like a drunk at the dinner table. He was so inebriated that he had to be rushed to the hospital.
Hands down, Applebees is the place to go if you’re young and looking to get wasted. Sadly though, it’s located in Michigan and the Outback is in Ohio. Still waiting for a California restaurant to learn the importance of underage drinking.
