Age Limit In Bars

I heard that you only have to be 18 to get into some of the bars in SPI and i was wondering if anyone can put truth to this or not.

I don't know what age you have to be to GET IN, but you have to be 21 to buy.

It's up to the bar. Some will charge a higher cover for under 21, some will only allow under 21 for certain shows, some just don't want the hassle/liability and make it 21 or over. In any case, MIP (Minor In Possession) laws are vigorously enforced. Bartenders are personally liable, as well as their employers if the serve minors.
