OLYMPIA - Two Everett businesses were cited for alcohol violations following a joint undercover operation conducted on March 20 by the Washington State Liquor Control Board (WSLCB) and the Everett Police Department. Officers checked nine businesses for sales/service of alcohol to minors, sales/service of alcohol to apparently intoxicated persons, and allowing disorderly conduct on the licensed premises.
The Irishmen, located at 2923 Colby Ave., and Tony V's Garage Saloon and Eatery, located at 1712 Hewitt Ave, were cited for sales/service of alcohol to apparently intoxicated persons.
The WSLCB and local authorities regularly conduct undercover operations at area businesses licensed to sell alcohol. These businesses include spirits, beer and wine restaurants, grocery stores, neighborhood markets, taverns, wine bars and sports/entertainment facilities.
Liquor enforcement officers are empowered to issue administrative violation notices to businesses that violate state liquor laws and regulations. Fines or temporary license suspensions can be issued depending on the severity of the infraction or the frequency with which a business has been cited. Liquor enforcement officers review the past two years when determining fines or license suspensions.
The following Everett businesses were found to be in compliance on March 20:
Foxy's, 9601 Evergreen Way
