Wastin' Away Again

4:45 PM -- This just in from the Associated Press: Applebee's serves alcohol to minors. And minors are ungrateful:

    Kim Mayorga was confused when her 2-year-old started making funny faces and pushing away the apple juice he had ordered at Applebee's. The explanation came when she opened the lid of the sippy cup and was hit by the smell of tequila and Triple Sec.

He pushed away his liquor? That is confusing behavior!

    The restaurant staff accidentally gave Julian Mayorga a margarita Monday. He grew drowsy and started vomiting a few hours later and was rushed to the hospital.

So... They gave him a margarita for the price of a juice. Talk about eatin' good in the neighborhood...

    The Mayorgas will be reimbursed for their medical bills, and Tei said the franchise group's restaurants will no longer serve apple juice and margaritas in similar containers.

Well, it's nice to see the Applebee's staff members are finally putting their degrees in rocket science to good use.
