The Chattanooga Beer Board on Thursday issued Mitchell F. Brady, Sr., owner of Mitch’s on Harrison Pike, a written warning for liquor and gambling violations.
Mr. Brady’s son, Mitch Brady, Jr., managed the restaurant the night of April 28 and tested a .05 result on the breathalyzer test, which is below the legal limit for intoxication but officials said it was proof that Mr. Brady, Jr., was drinking on the premises.
It is illegal for the owner or employee of an establishment to drink on location. Mr. Brady, Jr., did admit that he had been indulging in Jell-O shots with customers.
The owner said he has been in business for almost 18 years. “I’ve been trying to keep my nose clean and stay out of trouble,” he said. “It won’t happen again.” Mitch’s last violation was almost 18 years ago.
So I am confused. If you are employed by a bar or own a bar you cannot drink in the bar ever? Or just while you are working? If he wasn't working why would anyone care? And, Hell some of the best bartenders I have ever had were actually better after a couple of pops!
For Mitchs just to get a warning, the Beer Board must have arrived just at opening time. I've been there a few times at night and even seen the four legged animals that live below the place intoxicated!
Never trust a bartender who won't drink their own drinks.
They always mean beautiful things like hummingbirds. I always reply by saying that I think of a little child in east Africa with a worm burrowing through his eyeball. The worm cannot live in any other way, except by burrowing through eyeballs. I find that hard to reconcile with the notion of a divine and benevolent creator.

"It is illegal for the owner or employee of an establishment to drink on location. Mr. Brady, Jr., did admit that he had been indulging in Jell-O shots with customers.'
Ahhh the difference a couple of little words makes! This should have been worded "It is illegal for the owner or employee of an establishment to drink on location while on duty" I double checked with the ABC...employees may drink on premises if off the clock, outside of scheduled work time and should be out of uniform...
