Sale of liquor at 2235 Dave Ward Drive, Barefoot Campus Outfitter

Posted: March 10, 2014 - 3:09pm

• Sale, barter or loan of liquor at 2235 Dave Ward Drive, Barefoot Campus Outfitter. 

Undercover surveillance at the business revealed patrons were being served margaritas after their purchases. According to the Conway Police Department report, an officer saw margarita mix near a frozen beverage machine behind the counter and patrons walking around with clear plastic cups containing a light-colored beverage. The undercover officer made a purchase but was not offered a drink, according to the report. 

An officer went back to the business and spoke with the manager and explained why he was there. 

The manager explained that the business was checking IDs and no one under 21 was being given margaritas. The officer informed the manager it was illegal to sell or give away alcoholic beverages. The manager told the officer it was a promotion that other stores in Texas used, and she did not know it was illegal.

They literally advertised

They literally advertised ahead of time that they were going to do this promotion.

Curious

I'm wondering why there was undercover surveilance at the store in the first place. It doesn't state in the article that anyone phoned a tip in that this was taking place. Did they know about this ahead of time? And if they learned of it through the advertisements, couldn't they have just contacted the store beforehand to let them know that they probably shouldn't go ahead with this promotion instead? I'm going to play devil's advocate here and assume that by making the advertisements, they didn't intend on doing anything illegal or underhanded.

I didn't say they weren't stupid. Clearly if you are opening a business in a dry county, you would think it wouldn't be okay. If they were aware, then by posting advertisements, they are showing a clear lack of judgment, smarts, whatever. But then again, Jack Roberts used to like to say that being ignorant of the law is no excuse. So, on that note, I will see myself out...
