fake id cards blamed for Chicago club closing

Evanston popular pub, The Keg has just lost it’s liquor license due to public safety concerns over underage drinking. Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl decision also prevents bar owner Tom Migon from getting a liquor license for other place in town. According to the records The Keg has received 111 alcohol-related ordinance citations since 2005. The place also has history of temporary liquor license suspensions; in 2005 for fatal shooting and in 2010 for underage drinking. However bar owner attempted to improve underage drinking prevention by installing cameras to photograph patrons and required 2 pieces of identification he failed to convince the Mayor. Social media also didn’t help the place, it was described as the place to go especially for underage students of Northwestern University. At last week hearing owner’s attorney Todd Stephens blamed fake ID cards manufacturers in China that make it hard to distinguish a genuine state id card or driver’s license from a fake one. It’s certainly hard to prosecute a fake ID card maker overseas however using fake state ID card or even possession of it is a serious offense. Maybe a case of fake id card user prosecuted for trying to get alcoholic beverage in The Kegs of Evanston would have saved the place. All too late now.
