Fox and Hounds: ID Required

Have you ever been ID’ed at Fox and Hounds? Maybe because I’m an international lush, they’ve known I’m old enough to consume. But not poor Carl.

The Fox and Hounds hostess tagged him quick for his government issued drinking ID, doing an age check on a man my senior.

Now should Carl take this as a need for a training glass – his booze watered down. Or did they know his hooch brewing background and didn’t want him downgrading the patio party time?

I think its his ever-youthful appearance that warrants an inclusion in the Beautiful DC People contest.

Regardless, fess up if you’ve been tagged for an ID at Fox and Hounds too. There can’t be many…

    ha! i’ve got you topped. i’m 38yrs old WITH enormous swathes of grey hair. it’s obvious i’m not yer local kiddo. anyway, i bought tickets on ebay to see iggy pop at the 9:30 club for my birthday. oops. i forgot that my license expired on my b-day. so.. mister 38 year old appears at the club with his expired license (on that same day!). they called me on it, and let me in with one of those bands that you wear around your wrist indicating that you’re not of age to drink.

    there was no way i was going to watch iggy without a beer…

    so i asked my wife to buy a beer for herself, and that i (old man) would hold it for her. so… old man is holding it for her, and occasionally licking the sides of the cup because of all the bumping and pushing…. :o)

    some 20 year old girl comes up to me, and asks me to go outside with her. i’m like, “why”?

    she says, just follow me, and very officiously escorts me out. she says i had a beer in hand, and would have to leave. she doesn’t want to hear any explanations, and she stamps a big X on my hand, and says, ‘be on your way’. i plead for her to at least let my wife know what’s going on – she’s still inside, nor realizing the gravity of the situation…

    she agrees, finds my wife, and my wife comes out of the place with this incredulous look on her face.

    we left, right before the iggy opening.

    kind of a bummer. AND the little girl was extremely abrasive. i work in politics, so i’m sensitive to these things. clearly, she was riding high on some officious mule that had been granted to her. i actually felt bad for me, and sorry for this kid that’s actually living in the era of ‘homeland security’. i wonder if she woiuld have let my grandmother in, if she didn’t have her i.d.

    anyway, the times are a-changing. and it’s pretty scarey when you have little kids running things, without any kind of experience.

    beware – i bet she’ll be working the security line at the airport as her next gig.

    she definitely won’t be working in politics/diplomacy…

    I couldn’t believe that waitress asked for my ID. She was standing above me and could clearly see my growing bald spot, thinning hair and wisps of gray. I think she was trying to hit on me but Wayan’s camera phone upset her. I’m rather glad she didn’t try harder.

    How old are you, Wayan? I can’t have that many years on you.

    Poo Poo I am disappointed in you. That was way too quick a give-up for someone in politics. You should’ve fought for your rights to get drunk and stupid.

    Yeah. Other politicians even seem to want the right to a master blaster. If that’s the case, how can they deny you a beer?

    i think i’ve been working in politics too long.

    an authoritave person (people) told me to do something, and glassy eyed me actually obeyed.

    i need a new job. maybe being a pig-ear-cleaner will set me straight. ;op
