UPDATE: One-day suspension ordered.
Officials from Jerry Remy's Sports Bar and Grille told the Boston Licensing Board today they're cracking down on employees after getting cited for the second time in two months for underage patrons getting drinks because they were friends with workers at the Fenway restaurant.
An incident on June 17, in which BPD detectives on a routine inspection found somebody with a drink who shouldn't have had one mirrored a similar occurrence on April 4 at the Boylston Street outlet.
In both cases, bartenders did not check IDs because servers vouched for the purchasers of alcohol, in this case a draft Coors Light, police said.
Jerry Remy's said it's hired a director of operations to keep this sort of thing from happening again. The bar's attorney added that both employees involved in the June incident were fired.
The licensing board decides Thursday what action, if any, to take against Jerry Remy's for the incident.
