The Arvada Liquor Licensing Authority suspended the license of a local Italian restaurant based on a violation during a liquor license compliance check in December 2008.
A server at the restaurant asked for the ID of a police Explorer Scout (minor) but served him a beer even though he couldn’t produce an ID proving he was 21.
· DiCicco's Italian Restaurant at 5660 Olde Wadsworth Blvd., served a two-day suspension of its liquor license on March 2nd and March 3, 2009 for failure to comply with the city’s liquor laws.
The Arvada Police Department’s Liquor Licensing Investigator conducted a compliance check at nine Arvada businesses holding liquor licenses in the city on December 17, 2008.
Two 18-year old male Explorer Scouts* served as volunteer buyers, while a sworn police officer assisted in the operation by helping observe the transactions, and by issuing the summons when the volunteer was served without showing an ID for proof of age.
DiCicco’s Italian Restaurant recorded the only violation during the compliance check late last year.
This is DiCicco’s first liquor license violation.
