DOH closes Coyote Ugly

Last night, I noticed that Coyote Ugly was closed during prime happy hour time... (Noted this via Twitter)


...and this evening ... the gate is up, revealing the DOH sticker....


They scored 40 points on their last DOH visit in December... the major violations:
Sanitary Violations
1) Food Protection Certificate not held by supervisor of food operations.
2) Raw, cooked or prepared food is adulterated, contaminated, cross-contaminated, or not discarded in accordance with HACCP plan.
3) Evidence of mice or live mice present in facility's food and/or non-food areas.
4) Filth flies or food/refuse/sewage-associated (FRSA) flies present in facility’s food and/or non-food areas. Filth flies include house flies, little house flies, blow flies, bottle flies and flesh flies. Food/refuse/sewage-associated flies include fruit flies, drain flies and Phorid flies.
5) Food contact surface not properly washed, rinsed and sanitized after each use and following any activity when contamination may have occurred.

Imagine they'll be back open soon enough...

Coyote Ugly doesn't serve food but the DOH treats bartenders the same way they treat cooks in a restaurant so;

1)You need to have someone with a food handlers certificate on premises at all time
2)Lemons, limes and olives are considered food

The rules are just stupid. I know a bartender that got points for not having their hair covered.

As my barfly buddy Bubba always says at every establishment he frequents:

"They serve food here?"

"Lemons, limes and olives are considered food"

Must be a Ronnie legacy. Happy 100!
