YOU MUST BE 18 OR OVER TO ENTER

GEORGIA STATE LAW
In July of 2005, State bureaucrats, and anti-smoking zealots, enacted the “Georgia Smoke-Free Air Act.” As a result, every restaurant owner in Georgia was forced to choose between admitting minors or allowing their customers the freedom to smoke. Guess which option we chose? Bye-bye kiddies! Our patrons now enjoy eating, drinking and socializing in an “adults-only” environment. And they can still light-up if they want to. It’s a win/win situation. Thanks, crazy Fascists. Please understand, we cannot grant any kind of a “waiver,” as this is not just a company policy, but also State law.

JUST SHOW YOUR ID
Do not give anyone a hard time when they ask to see your ID. Sideshow geeks get paid to guess your age, but we are required to verify it. So if you are refused a drink, or denied access to the bar because you don’t have your ID, it’s your own damned fault for being a dumb-ass.

NOW LET'S REVIEW
You may be carded at the door because you must be 18 to enter The Vortex. This will require a valid government issued form of identification. Your college ID or a wrinkled photocopy of a speeding ticket won’t cut it. If you order alcohol you may be carded a second time because you must be 21 to drink. Take it as a compliment. Hell, we might even card you a third time if you move from a table to the bar. We are not trying to be difficult. We are just protecting our government-issued liquor license, and the livelihood of our entire staff. We are required to obey the law, and so are you. So just shut your face and show your ID.
