    This should be a first offense permanent liquor license revocation. You do this, you should never work in the service industry again.

    Well if they can prove interstate commerce the dark cloud aka the Feds move in... could be a simple as them buying the rubbing alcohol or the empty bottles from NY... I would think they would be involved due to the adulteration of the beverages.

    I'm not a violent man, but if some asshole served me rubbing alcohol and called it scotch, I would seriously jump over the bar and chew that person's face off.

    I find it amazing that 1 franchisee owns all 13 Friday's restaurants that were caught doing this shit and the owner is seeking to "correct any problems" as if it WASN'T his decision to do screw his customers. It's just a pure coincidence that all 13 locations are run by his company and by some strange alignment of the stars, planets, and the moon the managers of every one of his restaurants just happened to get the same shitty idea to rip off their bar customers in the exact same way. What a piece of garbage.

    That's methyl, not isopropyl.

    Isopropyl is less poisonous, you could probably drink a pint of it and recover.
    But its not good for you, and these shitheads should see jail for it.

    I can see them getting away with it if they're using rubbing alcohol in the sweet, syrupy shit drinks they serve... like their horrid margaritas... those things would taste like industrial waste even if you used top-shelf liquor in them.

    But... to serve brown-dyed rubbing alcohol "scotch" to a customer neat or on the rocks? You'd have to be a moron/scumbag... and you're just begging to have a customer(like me) wind up and throw a highball glass straight at your face.

    This is why I only drink beer at bars. Always watch them pour and open bottles. Seen too many people get cranked by watered down whiskey and vodka. I've heard of places that will take either Popov, Crystal Palace or some other low grade alcoholic vodka and pour it into Stoly or Grey Goose bottles. Scumbags. Yank their liquor licenses. I used to work in a liquor store while in college, super fucking hard to get a liquor license in Jersey. To buy one you are paying fucking everyone to just get that piece of paper.

    isopropyl alcohol is commonly used in the making of flavors. you know those little crystals in certs and shit? yeah, that's what's used to cool the encapsulated flavor pellets.
