Thread: Restaurant to retrain staff after mixed-drink mixup

    Default Restaurant to retrain staff after mixed-drink mixup

    1 hr 38 mins ago

    CHICAGO (Reuters) The company that owns the Applebee's restaurant chain said on Monday it was immediately retraining its workers nationwide after a server at a suburban Detroit location accidentally served alcohol to a toddler.

    The company, California-based DineEquity Inc, said it would also change the way it serves juice to youngsters to eliminate the chance of any mixups that could result in any more toddlers receiving mixed drinks.

    On Friday, Taylor Dill-Reese went to an Applebee's in Madison Heights, Michigan, where -- among other things -- she ordered her 15-month-old son Dominick an apple juice.

    What the little boy apparently got instead was a margarita. His mom told WDIV-TV that she only realized something was wrong when Dominick "kind of laid his head on the table and dozed off a little bit and woke up and got real happy."

    The little boy reportedly began hailing strangers, too.

    Applebee's released a statement on Monday saying it was relieved that Dominick was "not seriously injured as a result of accidentally receiving the wrong beverage" and apologizing to his family "for the stress and worry this caused them."

    It said it would begin to serve apple juice to children only from single-serve containers at the table and would "retrain all severs on our beverage pouring policy, emphasizing that non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages must be stored in completely separate and identified containers."

    I was at the Olive garden tonite, and had quiete a few apple juices. They looked exactly like your picture. The apple juice was quite tastie.

    When my son asked what I was doing tonite, I told him, I was involved in doing an experiment.

    I can't see what all the fuss is about.

    A few sips of an alcoholic beverage is not going to kill a toddler.

    Didn't anyone have a teaspoon of whisky as a kid?

    Or a sip of beer?

    This is religion gone mad, I tell you.

    Liquor is good. Even on Sundays. And yes, on sale from gas stations too. Or sitting open on the passenger seat if the mood takes you (but not to be drunk while driving, of course).

    In England we call it "freedom". And it's what your ancestors, mistakenly, left for.

    You fought for freedom and you've ended up with less of it because morals and the church got in the way.

    Well played.

    Ah, that baby is so cute. NOW TAKE HIS LIPS OFF THAT BEER MUG!
    I think these 2 places, served them more than a sip. According to the articles, it was a full drink.

    I don't like Applebee's anyway. Rush you in, rush you out. Food is marginal at best. Horrible place. The only worse place is Olive Garden where they actually believe that the dreck they serve up is authentic Italian. Apparently they have never been to the North End of Boston.
