Cottage Grove police cite Carbone's and Applebee's for selling to minors
Two Cottage Grove restaurants failed a compliance check last month, when waitresses sold alcohol to underage patrons Nov. 30.
A 44-year-old woman was cited for selling alcohol to an underage patron at Carbone's Kitchen and Pub, 7155 Jorgensen Lane.
This is the second violation for Carbone's in a two-year period, meaning the restaurant and bar will receive a $1,000 fine plus a three-day licence revocation.
A 24-year-old Cottage Grove woman was also cited for selling alcohol to an underage patron at Applebee's, 8380 East Point Douglas Road.
Applebee's will receive $500 fine and either a one-day suspension or an educational program for all employees.
The public safety department does compliance checks on liquor licenses twice a year.
