Using zoning laws to limit alcohol outlet density won't stop the heaviest drinkers from consuming alcoholic beverages ("Government should use zoning to limit liquor stores, Hopkins researchers say," April 11). Such a solution oversimplifies the problem of alcohol abuse. Just compare Maryland and Pennsylvania. Despite its smaller population, Maryland's private control of alcohol sales means it has roughly 1.5 times as many alcohol retail outlets as government-controlled Pennsylvania.

Five Harford County establishments licensed to sell alcoholic beverages failed the latest compliance test by the county liquor control board by selling to a minor working undercover with liquor board inspectors and the county sheriff's office, liquor board officials said. In all, 27 licensed businesses were checked Monday, with 22 not selling to the minor, the liquor board said in a news release issued Thursday. Of the five locations that sold alcohol to the 19-year-old employee of the liquor board's undercover program, none of them requested identification from the board's underage purchaser, the liquor board said.

The cops surely picked the wrong place to drink after work -- their chief's favorite morning hangout, Miss Shirley's, especially since they were in partial police uniform. But here's the other question this raises -- what were they drinking? The upscale eatery with locations in Roland Park and at the Inner Harbor doesn't have beer on the menu. Now, cops aren't limited to beer, but still, some of these drinks come with umbrellas. The “Wet your whistle” page offers the $5.99 Miss Mimosa - the classic champagne and fresh-squeezed orange juice, garnished with pulp, and a $7.99 Spicy Shirely, a Bloody Mary with pickled okra, Jalapenos and lump crab.

The Harford County Liquor Control Board has to do better, and usually does, than the nonsense it perpetrated last week. The Mallet, a Fallston restaurant and bar, which so far has apparently followed the rules, shut down its lower level last Wednesday night and rented it out for a private birthday party. The party, hosted and paid for by a prominent Harford County developer as a surprise for his wife, featured a performance by Bret Michaels, an international rock star who in recent years has become just as famous for his reality TV presence.

Faster than you can say, "Irish coffee," the powers-that-be clamped down on the sale of juice-flavored alcoholic drinks infused with caffeine last week. The Food and Drug Administration has labeled the caffeine in drinks like "Four Loko" to be an unsafe additive, and the manufacturer of that particular product has already pledged to stop using it. Rarely has an alcoholic beverage — one that can be fairly easily duplicated by mixing vodka with a typical energy drink and that has been on store shelves for eight years — received such harsh and universal condemnation.

Angela Pierce and husband Nicolas used to enjoy a dinner date once a week. Now the Culver City, Calif., couple patronize restaurants just twice a month, thanks to gasoline prices that are on average 71 cents a gallon higher nationwide than a year ago. Unfortunately for the $175 billion U.S. sit-down restaurant business, the Pierces aren't the only ones staying away from their favorite eating places. In the past few months, restaurants such as Chili's, Cheesecake Factory and Applebee's - what analysts call the "casual dining" category that offers table service and alcoholic beverages - have recorded small but discouraging sales declines.
