Most Coeur dAlene Resort bars and restaurants will be closed Friday through Tuesday because of an Idaho liquor law violation.
The five-day suspension of the resorts liquor license stems from an Idaho State Police compliance operation last April. A bartender at Splash, a resort sports bar, served a minor working with the ISPs Alcohol Beverage Control unit.
The suspension applies to resort venues that serve alcohol, including Beverlys Restaurant, Whispers Lounge, Dockside Restaurant, Titos Italian Grill and the convention center. The Dockside will remain open but will not serve alcohol.
The resort has an excellent alcohol compliance record and is one of the best employers in the state for training servers, said Lt. Russ Wheatley of the state police.
These guys have done nothing but their very, very best on ensuring these things dont occur, Wheatley said. They take this very seriously in their responsibility.
