Event Ticket Purchases: The Proposed BOSS Act Would Empower Biden’s Rogue FTC and Make Matters Worse, Not Better

A summer whose entertainment headlines were dominated by Taylor Swift and her blowout concert tour just came to an end.  Unsurprisingly, a significant number of those headlines centered upon the ongoing public policy debate over the consumer ticket purchase experience, along with varying and differing calls for reform.

Unfortunately, some of that discussion served to introduce terribly ill-advised proposals that would only make the industry and American consumers’ enjoyment of it far worse.

A Colorado woman is suing an Aspen restaurant after allegedly being served too much cheap tequila.

Julia Penny of Wood Creek, Colorado, filed a small-claims lawsuit against upscale restaurant Casa Tua claiming she was served so much alcohol she ended up in the hospital.  Penny is seeking damages of $3,770, equivalent to her bill from the Aspen Valley Hospital.

According to news reports, Penny was served a margarita in a tall glass and that the bartender, who was quite busy, mistakenly added too much alcohol.

“I totally got overpoured,” Penny said. “It could’ve been the fact that it was cheap tequila. I thought maybe I had been drugged or something.”
The blood work showed that she had ingested five or so shots of tequila. Penny said she filed the lawsuit because the restaurant management was ignoring her.
“I went out for dinner that night and ended up in the emergency room,” Penny said. “I’m just very angry.”
