They busted and fined somebody for pouring a drink for this person.
If BM were an adults-only event, this could not have happened.
Oh wow...so let me get this straight. You want to ban anyone that's not of legal age to drink? That means we get to ban 18 year olds and up...teenagers who serve our country in the military and put their lives on the line to protect the freedoms we exercise at Burning Man! Sorry but that's discriminatory and flat out fucking wrong.
As far as the sting goes, if you're running a bar and are too fucking lazy to check ID's....then you deserve what you get. The Booby Bar has a spiel down cold for checking ID's and having fun with it...or at least they did the last time I was in there.
This event is supposed to be about art and not drugs and alcohol...and artists are ALL AGES. Frankly I don't want to see anyone shut out, I prefer an all-inclusive event. So does the LLC...read the 10 principles and see which one is listed first. After you read that, then come back in here and try to defend your position...let's see what you come up with.
