Question about serving alcohol
so here's the deal.. i am 20 and work at a bar/grill. if a friend of mine comes in (who is of age) and i serve him, and i buy him a drink (so let's say he buys two millers at $3 a piece and i only ask him for 3 bucks - i'd cover the rest) is essentially what i did illegal? because i am underage and technically just bought alcohol for someone? or doesn't it really matter because i could just cover it as i just put it through my tips since i am actually working and handling the alcohol.
honestly it isn't all that important, i was just curious to see if anyone knew the answer to this, cuz i don't.
i dont think thats illegal cause technically it was on "the house" but i really dont know
no because i know here in BC you only have to be 18 to serve and you can serve alcohol then, but techinally you can't buy it. but if you just took it out of your tips and rang it through, no one would know and you can't get in trouble. :)

i remember once when i was like 12 i went to dinner with my dad on his birthday and he got a scotch and i paid for it when he was done, i felt so good about that for like a month hahaha
haha alright. i know that i can't get caught the way our system works, i was just wondering if it actually was illegal. either way it's all good. thanks for the second opinion!
its not on the house if the bartender / server covers the difference. on the house is when you don't ring up the sale at all. like at my bar if a person gets 4 drinks, the 5th one is free, i just give them the beer / drink and thats it, no register action.

Also, we have a much different demographic than a lot of other forums. Unfortunatley, that demographic is retarded, cocky 13 years olds. It's a bummer.
