Jackie Clarkson Wants Underagers Out of Bars
Here in the Bayou State, you have to be 21 to drink, but you can get into the bar at the same time you can get into a voting booth. Well, City Councilwoman Jackie Clarkson got wind of this, and despite all the concerts and bar games that don't require she doesn't like it one bit. On Thursday, she's bringing an ordinance before City Council that would make it illegal to go into a watering hole before you're old enough to water. WWL-TV has the story.
NoDef Numbers: July 19-26
Last week, a skyscraper's low bid was less than a double shotgun, Rep. Cedric Richmond dazzled - at baseball, and, as ever, underage drinking was found at a place with "frat" in its name. Like the Paw Paw Bandit, NoDef Numbers tend to show up around the same time each week, but we never wear the same colors.

32 Served in Uptown Underage Drinking Bust
With a name like The Frat House, there was probably a reason Louisiana Alcohol and Tobacco Control targeted the Uptown bar for a raid last night. Still, 29 summons were handed out for underage drinking, three bartenders were slapped with criminal charges and school's not even in session. So why not put out a press release? Reports of underage drinking lead agents to the bar, located at 8200 Willow St. The raid follows the closing of another college stronghold, Friar Tuck's, after an underage drinking bust.

'That's a Lot of Beer'
In yet another Carnival crackdown, agents from the state Office of Alcohol and Tobacco Control slapped about 650 citations on local underage drinkers and their suppliers during the final 2 1/2 weeks of the Mardi Gras season. Though they deal with that sort of thing for a living, agents were shocked while putting a sting on a NOLA frat party. They found 190 kegs of beer had already been put down. "That's a lot of beer," Alcohol and Tobacco Commissioner Troy Hebert told the AP. Doesn't he remember the good old days?
