Olive Garden and Other Chains Change Drink Policies After Drunk Toddler Incidents

Looks like several human-error incidents at multiple casual dining locations during the month of March and into early April have prompted Olive Garden, Applebee’s and Ruby Tuesday to reevaluate their drink policies. The latest of which, a mixup at a Michigan Applebee’s Grill & Bar led a 15-month-old’s cup to be accidentally filled with alcohol instead of apple juice. According to reports, Applebee’s management will no longer serve juice from bottles from behind the bar, instead will crack open single-serve portions table-side.
