Speakeasy on the Playa! Food Service Exemptions

Post by smiffman » Fri Jul 31, 2015 8:50 am

Sup, was doing some research on starting a deep playa speakeasy, where I'm the lone bartender. Here is some of my findings.......


From the home office in Carson City, NV (no choco tacos were harmed in the making of this ad)

 Food Service Exemptions - We do NOT require permits for, or regulate those who wish to share, prepare, or
serve the following exempted items:
o Alcoholic beverages
o Foods that are commercially prepackaged and served unopened in single serve size packaging not
requiring refrigeration. Examples of these foods include unopened packages of candy, single serve sized
bags of chips, pretzels, snack bars, cookies, nuts, cans of soda, bottled water
o Whole uncut fruit
o Coffee, tea, or hot chocolate prepared and served without any milk or dairy; using only powdered nondairy
creamer or ultra-pasteurized dairy creamer in individual servings
o Commercially prepared acidic beverages such as orange juice or lemonade that are served from the
original container without the addition of ice or other foods
o Commercially prepared, prepackaged and unopened individual ice cream bars
o Cotton candy and Popcorn (unopened packages from approved sources with proper labels)


Hope it helps....

A little bit of information is dangerous.
Please check out the Nevada food permit site before you plan your gifting of any food. This thread has all the links. If they don't work, come back to them later. It's their busiest time of year. viewtopic.php?f=276&t=70051

Thanks Ratty, I initially went to that thread but kept getting the dreaded "401" so just used some RSR.


I don't plan on having any food that isn't sealed by a factory.


My speakeasy will be straight booze/shots maybe with time limits perhaps.......hmmmm.

At the Last Bar on Earth, we use the large plastic jugs of pre-made cocktails, beer, sodas, water, ice from Arcata, individual packettes of beer nuts and slim jims (which will kill you quicker than any hand touched hotdog). For the most part we don't mix drinks, it's pre-made, factory sealed. And look, if someone on the deep playa is demanding that verbotten olive in their martini, fuck em.

Very important to remember that the health department considers ice a food product and it must come from an approved source. At the Burn that would mean bringing it in from Gerlach/Empire or the default, Camp Artica.

Bri: you can now get single-serve olive snack-packs. About 5 of them in a single-serve pouch. Walmart, Kroger, etc all have them. FWIW...

Wait... I thought the password always was and always will be "pineapple."

watch out for visitors to your bar offering to gift the bar/bartender various items. Food they just dragged out of their backpack, took a bite of, then gave the rest to the bar. you can't serve it, you can't make moop, so now it is yours to deal with. Also watch for gifting of illegal substances from undercover officers.

Yeah, sometimes when we are set up out by the trash fence there will be some wild hooligan offering me a hit off their hippie joint.
How hard is it to understand that the Last Bar on Earth has a strict no-smoking policy?
