Thanks to a reader for the heads up in this morning’s rant/revel – from The Midlands:
“Since we opened in November we have met many wonderful people in the community and we love that The Midlands has become a gathering place for the neighborhood. Watching the garden filled with adults, dogs and children is a wonderful sight. Sadly, we need to change our rules regarding children. We didn’t come to this decision lightly because we understand how difficult it can be for parents to find a place where their whole family is welcome. We know this because some our best friends and employees are parents. We know all you want is a relaxing place to bring your kiddo and enjoy a drink with your friends, but unfortunately there are safety concerns that have been brought to our attention.
Our main concern is the safety and welfare of our patrons, so starting today The Midlands will be strictly 21 and over except Monday to Thursday from 4pm until 8pm. At 8pm we will ask parents to take their little ones home. We apologize for the policy change, but we are doing this before a child is injured, which is the worst case scenario for everyone.”
