City Restaurants Forced To Implement Brunch Fines, Too Many Diners Are Getting Drunk And Vomiting
It is one thing if you defecate on the streets in San Francisco, but you better not think about vomiting in a restaurant. Because that would officially cross the line.
Who doesn't love Sunday brunch when you consider the endless supply of cheap champagne for bottomless mimosas and decadent egg dishes that take away your Sunday Scaries?
Well, some Bay Area restaurants offering bottomless mimosas are finding that some diners are drinking just a bit too much as they have been vomiting in the bathrooms — or even right on their tables.
According to SFGate, since the pandemic, many restaurants in the Bay Area are finding that drunk diners in their early to mid-20s are becoming far too often of a reality as the burden on staff to clean up after these belligerent barfers is reaching never-before-seen levels, making it necessary for restaurants to even implement fees.
A sign posted at Kitchen Story, a popular brunch spot in Oakland, warns those who indulge in any of the varieties of bottomless mimosas to “drink responsibly and know your limits.” Otherwise, a $50 cleaning fee will be automatically added to the tab if you throw up in a public area of the restaurant.
The general manager decided to post the sign after noticing similar warnings in other local bars
“It was really tough cleaning,” co-owner Chaiporn Kitsadaviseksak told the outlet, and he said that the job made staff more uneasy due to COVID-19. “People were scared ... and this was happening a lot. My workers don’t want to do that.”
And apparently, this has actually worked to improve the situation.
“Now [customers] know they have to pay. They understand.”
Home Plate is another restaurant in San Francisco that has implemented a similar policy with signs warning of a $50 “cleaning fee” for incidents resulting from excessive drinking.
Owner Teerut Boon told SFGate they still got someone throwing up “every other week.” The restaurant has also decreased its time limit to 75 minutes for bottomless brunch to prevent customers from overindulging.
To be fair to the Champagne Champions, servers are supposed to monitor alcohol intake and cut people off before they get to that point. Not only should the Hammered Hipsters take part of the blame here, but staff needs to be trained in proper alcohol safety.
They over-serve these partying pukers but at the same time claim, they are fed up that they constantly have to clean it up. If this is such a recurring issue, that means they are not responsibly monitoring alcohol intake. So they are partly to blame here. And the law definitely backs up that statement if something were to happen as a result of overserving them.
Maybe the youngins are chugging as much down as possible in order to get as much bang for their buck within the allowed time limit. Some people are just trash and that may be the real issue here.
Either way, a restaurant should not play dumb when college students get too wasted during bottomless brunch. Although the liability falls greatest on the puker, I do not have much sympathy for the restaurants either.
