Alcohol: Neither the client nor anyone representing the client is allowed to request or knowingly allow service providers to serve liquor to minors.

Both actions must be approved by venue. The same clause goes for pre-poured glasses on table and client consuming alcohol that Austin’s Elite did not serve and not have any knowledge of serving.
