In response to a growing problem of under-21-year-olds attempting to drink at the Pour House, the venue announced this week that they can no longer allow entry to those below the legal drinking age without a legal guardian or family member present. “The past three years have been without incident, but in the past week we have had some huge problems — people washing off the Xs on their hands, trying to sneak drinks, and being overtly disrespectful to the house rules, in turn adding undue stress to our bartenders and security,” read the official statement, posted last Tuesday on Facebook. The Pour House apologized to those minors who have respected the rules, but explained the liability of continuing their ‘all ages’ policy was too great. Concerts with a largely younger-age following (the staff mentions Leslie, for example), will be advertised as “all ages” on a per show basis. —Stratton Lawrence
