saboisgod: Roook: Where the fark did she think she was? Germany?

Or Wisconsin maybe. We can bring our kids to the bars and buy 'em drinks, as long as we are their legal guardians.


Really? the under 21 thing doesnt apply if in the presence of a legal guardian? awesome!

the bringing kids in bars verbot doesnt make any sense. when my daughter was a baby i was standing around with friends with my daughter on my chest in one of those baby bandolier belt thingys... walked into a bar with my sleeping daughter, the bar tender had a hissy fit.

It's a correct sentence, if not slightly archaic. ;-)

Trapper439: Back in the late '70s my 6yo friend liked port wine so much that he drank an entire pint of it at a school BBQ and then ran into a tree. It was given to him by his dad, who later became an admiral. Times have changed.

/CSB


How long was this before the guy became an admiral? His rank may have had something to do with nobody saying anything about it.

BurnShrike: So? She gave him a few sips of [American] beer. That's something that's been going on for generations. Before modern water treatment systems, beer was safer to drink than the water from the lake/river. Children were given weaker drinks, but it was still alcohol.

The only thing this woman did wrong was do it in a public place where stupid people could report her.


Taking the child to the hospital was overkill and hysterical.

Yuppers, for real. It's handy for younger, married couples too- assuming one is over 21... some friends were going to get married, and the guy was excited to finally be able to 'legally' drink, because his wife would be 21, and he was like 19, maybe 20.

As a child (almost 30yrs ago), we lived across the road from a country bar. My parents wouldleave my brother and I there under the supervision of the bartender. She was an older, grandmotherly-type of lady, IIRC, so I'm sure my parents didn't worry too much and it was never, ever, ever packed/busy in there. Except maybe a Friday or Saturday night.

My dad used to bring me to the bar tha sponsored the softball team he played on. It's still my favorite bar in the city I live. My all-time favorite bar is the one from my childhood, even though I barely remember it and live about an hour away now...

I don't see the problem with giving your own children alcohol and supervising their consumption of it. Letting 'em take it to a party, out of your supervision is different I guess. I'm from Wisconsin though, so I'm sure my alcohol views are a bit skewed...and I rarely drink anymore (not really by choice- the meds don't mix well at all).

My dad used to let me sip the foam off his beers. Six kids, six beers. Used to use those fluted glasses instead of a beer mug. Man, I used to think that was fancy drinkin'.

After I got tossed out of the Army for my alcoholism, I wandered the streets. Every time I begged enough money for a beer, I would go to any tavern, bar or dive that would let me in and I'd order a beer. Always the mug though. Never a fluted beer glass with sweet foam top and the dancing tiny bubbles and the beautiful golden hue of pure refreshment.

Jail, detox, retox and de-detox later, I have my priorities set. Family, career and massive repayment. But every once in a while, I slip in to the old clothes and haunt the old haunts. Someday, I'll find a place where they serve an ice cold beer in a fine glass vessel with the golden elixir. When that happens, I'll become a four year old lad again; sitting on my fathers knee and sipping the foam off his beer. I know when that happens, I'll be happy one more time.

Cuchulane: Why are pizza joints called parlors?


In Rome, during the Rennaisance, the elite were the only ones who consumed pizza. It was like caviar back then. Not rare, but only to be eaten by royalty, religious hierarchy, scholars & the like. They even had special rooms where they would gather to eat it. A "salotto" which translates to parlour in English.

But they didn't let their toddlers drink beer in them fancy establishments!

The child abuse arrest is also ridiculous.

Officers noticed that the child's cup contained a liquid that had foam and smelled of alcohol.

What kind of beer was she drinking that actually smelled like alcohol?

Yeah, I was shocked when I first went to a bar up in Wisconsin and it had a sign up that said "no children under the age of 8 allowed in the bar after 9 pm"...I was 17 at the time, and they had no problem with me being in there at all. Apparently, it's all good to bring your children to bars in Wisconsin as long as they don't sit AT the bar.

/Also a 2 year old fell down? What an unusual event!

Little kids have been known to help themselves to unattended glasses/bottles/cans of beer from time to time. Years ago when my sister was a toddler she was quite fond of the taste of beer. Our dad had to remember not to leave his beer unattended if he left the room or he'd find her taking sips when he returned.

The funny thing is that when she got older, and even nowadays, she doesn't like the taste of beer and will refuse it if offered.


That was me as a kid. Except I still looooove my beer. 30 years later.

That might be less of a legal issue and more of a decorum issue.
We adults go to certain bars so that we can swear, and drink, and be loud. We generally don't like doing it around fresh, impressionable crotchfruit, and we REALLY REALLY don't farking like it when the parents expect the bar to instantly clean up its act because they brought their fark trophy in.

Yeah, I don't care if you bring you kid to the bar, I was taken to the icehouse plenty of times as a kid. But be aware that you are at a bar, and don' t expect someone else to alter their behavior because you brought your kid. Also, don't let the little bastards run around all over the goddamned place, because I will trip and or clothesline them as they run by.

I take my daughter into the liquor store to buy booze all the time. She helps me pick out beer as well. She's too young for the "first tasting" though. She did dip her hand into my wife's wine glass, suck on it and had a HUGE smile on her face.

Ed Becker: Beginning when I was about 5 (late '70's), my dad would send me down to the basement beer fridge to get him a barley pop. I learned how to use a bottle opener on my own and would take a few swigs on my way up. I was the world's youngest bartender. The swigs made me feel warm and I had to pee.

/fancy myself as a decent bartender to this day
//can drink a shiat ton of beer.
///the woman in TFA is out of her mind.


in my day i too had to man the ship that made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs. the basement fridge beer tote was a loathsome job. keeping dad eternally sud'sd was one thing. the weekend poker games is when i really had to haul those red, white & blues and Schaefer tall boys. seeing children in bars, drunk parents at picnics & county fairs - i feel it (alcohol abuse) sets a poor example for the little ones to see. adult behavior should be kept to adults IMHO.

My twins first tasted beer when they were 3 months old.
NOTE: they also chewed on whole toes of garlic at the same time.

They liked the beer more then the garlic.

When I was 5 or 6 ( around 1970) my father was having a beer on the back steps of our townhouse, I wanted some, so he got a small juice glass and poured some in. We sat on the back steps, drank beer and talked.

I will say that is one of the few memories of my father I have. But it is a good one.

CSB:

I was about 7 or 8 and my parents were throwing a cocktail party, and I was told to just play in my room and 'let the adults have their party'

Well naturally, I became curious and ventured downstairs where my mom was enjoying a glass of wine.

She asked what I was doing out of my room, and I just said I was getting a glass of water.

Naturally I asked if I could have a taste of her wine and she said 'Ok, but you won't like it'.

Turns out I did like it and said so. They elicited some chuckles from the adults, but my mother looked as if I just kicked the dog.

She took my hand, and rushed me back to my room saying 'I never want to hear you say that again'

Trance750: She took my hand, and rushed me back to my room saying 'I never want to hear you say that again'


Sheesh. My family's from eastern europe so alcohol was just always a part of our lives growing up. When we teethed they'd rub brandy on our gums, when I had night-terrors and couldn't fall back to sleep I'd get a small sip of brandy or grand marnier, we were always allowed to have a small (read two or three sips in a glass) of wine or champagne on special occasions, once we hit nine we were allowed a small glass with dinner each night, and once we hit thirteen we were allowed a full drink with dinner each night.

And none of went through the whole binge-drinking crap when we took off for college, either.

I always offer to share whatever I'm having with my 4-yr-old and have since he was two. It's just good manners. How can you expect your children to learn the value of sharing if you can't be a good role model?

/also now he asks me whether I think he'll like it and then trusts my answer
//it's a win-win

I imagine it's less about the taste of the beer and more about imitating the adults.

No, I'm pretty sure I just adored the taste of beer. I kind of remember... you know, my own life growing up... But hey, your theory still has some merit. Somewhere, with someone else's life, I'm sure... maybe.
