While I'm in the autumn of my years, read geezer, I can tell if it's a restaurant that sells more food than booze or a bar.

Honestly, this is a problem for you?

Such a deal....said in my best Jackie Mason voice.

Send in she who must before going in or someone else and have them ask if you're booze radar aint working right...

P.S. Getting into geezer years is embarrassing in more ways than getting up to pee 8 times a night, it's that your skin turns against you. It slowly begins to look like crepe paper. Wonderful....oh well, being dead will cure it after looking like some Star Trek reptile for a few years first.
Don't know what the definition of geezer is but I am 75. Perhaps I qualify. When you go into a restaurant that also has a bar you need to know. Our local Elks serves food once a week but is 51% marked. Who would of thought? Chilis serves food and has a bar. Not 51% though. The problem of course is that violation is a felony. And I really can't tell by looking which place is legal or not. I don't drink so I don't go to bars but I do eat and many restaurants serve alcohol so the signs are important.

It's just not important because if I'm carrying, I'm not going to drink booze. I won't quibble about how much is or isn't ok...

Why not?

Carry is more important than drinking.

You care to drink?

No problem.

Do it at home.

Good insurance.
It is not really a question of whether you drink (I don't drink at all), it is a question of whether you can legally enter while carrying. For me that issue comes with restaurants that also serve alcohol.

I agree. I should have mentioned this in my post.

Re: Bar with no 51% sign

There is a mobile app also, TABC mobile. At least for Iphone.

We eat at a restaurant locally that has 2 branches, both have hard alcohol and food. One is posted blue but we don't go there. The other is not posted at all. I have looked for a sign and checked the TABC site and they don't list. No sign, I don't care and I carry. The other place is blue, this one might be red. Do I care, no. Will I report them, no. I personally don't see why a 51% sign should have any effect on a LTC holder. You carry, you don't drink. Stupid law to ban LTC holder.

I never report or tell a business that their sign is wrong (I don't care what type of sign they put up-I don't help them fix it). Their business.
