Applebee’s surprises me. There is nothing in it for the server to break the law...so seems like inattentiveness.

the funny part about these stings are how effing OBVIOUS they are. A kid walks in who clearly looks like a kid and uses a bogus ID. There also happens to be a man 'talking on a cell phone' strolling around the establishment too. DURRRRRR. The prob is lack of IDing anyone under age 40. not worth the risk- just ask anyway.
