Vodka can boost problem solving and creativity, finds study

I could probably do a better job writing this story if I had consumed some vodka first.

Scientists from the University of Chicago concluded in a recent study that men who are under the influence, but also not legally drunk, were faster and more creative in solving word association problems than men who were sober.

The study, published online in Consciousness and Cognition on Jan. 28, said that sober men approached the task more deliberately, according to psychology graduate student Andrew Jarosz.

This could be why many musicians and artists claim to be more creative after imbibing, researcher Jennifer Wiley was quoted as saying on Gizmodo.com.
“A composer or artist fixated on previous work may indeed find creative benefits from intoxication,” Wiley said.

In the study, two groups of 20 social drinkers were asked to perform a creative problem-solving task, according to an article on the study in sciencenews.org, and the results from both groups were comparable.

Then, both groups watched an animated movie. The volunteers in one of the groups ate a snack and drank enough of a vodka cranberry drink to bring their blood alcohol level just under the 0.08 percent legal limit; the other group of volunteers didn’t eat or drink.

Both groups then took part in another creative problem-solving task. Those with a buzz solved more questions on average, and did so in less time, than those who were clear-headed.

The results of the study support findings of a group at the University of Missouri in Columbia. Psychologist J. Scott Saults’ team related that individuals under the influence become less afraid to make mistakes, which could increase creativity, sciencenews.org reported.

So drink up, and start writing.

Relator Cooper’s Restaurant, Inc. (restaurant) challenges the decision of
respondent City of Eagan (city) imposing a civil penalty and suspension of the
restaurant’s liquor license following an administrative hearing. The restaurant concedes
that it sold an alcoholic beverage to an underage person, but contends that the city’s

decision is not supported by substantial evidence and is arbitrary and capricious because

FACTS

In the evening of December 21, 2009, Eagan Police Officer Christopher Meade
went to the restaurant dressed in plain clothes to conduct an alcohol-compliance check;
he was accompanied by Joshua Grubb, an underage purchaser. The restaurant had been
cited for violations of relevant statutes, regulations, or ordinances three times within the
preceding 36 months: twice for selling alcoholic beverages after 1:00 a.m. without having
the requisite special permit and once for selling an alcoholic beverage to an underage
person.

Officer Meade and Grubb entered the restaurant, took seats at the bar, and each
ordered a beer. The bartender recognized Officer Meade from past visits to the
restaurant, and knew him to be a police officer. The bartender asked each man for his
proof-of-age identification. She first examined the Minnesota identification card
produced by Grubb, which showed his date of birth, October 10, 1989, and bore the
legend “UNDER 21” at the top of his photograph. The bartender asked Grubb “if he had
done the 21 shots on his birthday,” and Grubb said, “No.” After looking at Officer
Meade’s Minnesota driver’s license and confirming that he was of-age, the bartender
examined Grubb’s identification card a second time before serving them each a beer.
The restaurant had a card-swipe device, which if used by the bartender would have
scanned Grubb’s identification card and shown that he was 20 years old and underage.
The restaurant also had a bulletin board displaying the date on or before which a person 3
must have been born in order to be 21 or more years old. The bartender, who had nearly
25 years of bartending experience, simply admitted that she “made a total human error”
and “miscalculated” Grubb’s age.

Because the restaurant failed the alcohol-compliance check, the city initiated
administrative proceedings. Officer Meade, Grubb, the bartender, the restaurant’s owner,
and the restaurant’s attorney appeared at the administrative hearing. The restaurant’s
owner argued that the bartender was misled because Grubb’s answer to her question
about drinking 21 shots could be taken as an acknowledgement that he was 21 years old.
But the bartender specifically testified that she never asked Grubb his age or whether he
was 21 years old; she stated that she always looks at the identification-card picture, but
acknowledged that the picture on “[Grubb’s identification card] says under 21.” Her only
explanation was that she “got confused with the birth dates.”

The restaurant’s owner relied on Officer Meade’s presence in support of his
argument that Grubb misrepresented his age, contending that a fair assumption would be
that “they’re to tell the truth.” The bartender agreed that she respected Officer Meade’s
position as a police officer and did not expect him to try to trick her, and she stated that
Officer Meade’s presence “probably” influenced her decision to serve Grubb. The
restaurant’s owner acknowledged that the restaurant had failed alcohol-compliance
checks in the past and that he was aware that alcohol-compliance checks are conducted
by police officers accompanied by underage persons.

The city’s administrative-hearing officer issued a decision concluding that the
restaurant served alcohol to an underage person. The city ordered the restaurant to pay a 4
$2,000 civil penalty and suspended its liquor license for 30 days. This certiorari appeal
followed.

D E C I S I O N

Municipalities have broad discretion in the issuance, regulation, and revocation of
liquor licenses. Hymanson v. City of St. Paul, 329 N.W.2d 324, 326 (Minn. 1983); In re
On-Sale Liquor License, Class B, 763 N.W.2d 359, 365 (Minn. App. 2009). A
municipality may impose a civil penalty and suspend a liquor license based on the
licensee’s failure to comply with an applicable statute, rule, or ordinance relating to
alcoholic beverages. Minn. Stat. § 340A.415 (2008). The suspension may not take effect
until the licensee has been provided with an opportunity for an administrative hearing.
Id. This court may reverse or modify the municipality’s decision if the decision is
arbitrary and capricious, unsupported by substantial evidence, or affected by an error of
law. Minn. Stat. § 14.69 (2008). Reversible error must be shown by the party claiming
it. On-Sale Liquor License, 763 N.W.2d at 366.
Under Minnesota law, it is unlawful to sell or give an alcoholic beverage to a
person under 21 years of age. Minn. Stat. § 340A.503, subd. 2(1) (2008). Proof of age
may be established only by one of the government-issued forms of identification
enumerated in the statute, including a Minnesota identification card. Id., subd. 6(a)
(2008). A person prosecuted for selling an alcoholic beverage to an underage person has
an affirmative defense of reasonable, good-faith reliance only if the reliance is on proof
of age as established by one of the authorized forms of identification. Id., subd. 6(b)5
(2008). With exceptions not relevant here, the act of an employee of a licensed
establishment is deemed to be the act of the licensee. Minn. Stat. § 340A.501 (2008).
Under the Eagan city code, a licensee’s fourth violation within a 36-month period
calls for a $2,000 civil penalty and a 30-day suspension of its license. Eagan, Minn., City
Code § 5.02, subd. 4(G) (2009). A violation includes any failure to comply with any
applicable statute, regulation, or city-code provision relating to alcoholic beverages. Id.,
subd. 4(F) (2009).

The restaurant concedes that it sold an alcoholic beverage to Grubb, who was 20
years old, but argues that “the deceptive manner in which the [alcohol-compliance] check
was conducted rendered the transaction capricious” and that “evidence gained from the
use of trickery or deception” is not substantial evidence. In support of this contention,
the restaurant relies on Wajda v. City of Minneapolis, in which the supreme court stated
that an administrative agency abuses its discretionary power through “unreasonable,
arbitrary, capricious, or fraudulent action.” 310 Minn. 339, 343, 246 N.W.2d 455, 457
(1976) (quotation omitted).

The restaurant suggests that Grubb’s response to the bartender’s question about 21
shots, coupled with Officer Meade’s status as a police officer, amounts to fraudulent
behavior within the meaning of Wajda. We disagree. It is undisputed that: (1) Grubb
produced his valid Minnesota identification card; (2) the bartender failed to utilize the
readily available card-swipe machine, never asked Grubb’s age, and ignored the
qualifying date of birth displayed on the bulletin board; (3) Officer Meade made no
representation as to Grubb’s age; and (4) the restaurant was aware that the city 6
occasionally conducted alcohol-compliance checks with police officers accompanied by
underage persons. These facts negate the suggestion that the illegal sale was induced by
fraudulent behavior on the part of the city.

Moreover, as a matter of law, the sole source of verification of Grubb’s age upon
which the restaurant was entitled to rely was his Minnesota identification card. The card
stated Grubb’s date of birth, showing him to be 20 years old, and bore the legend
“UNDER 21” at the top of his photograph. See Minn. Stat. § 340A.503, subd. 6(b). The
city’s decision to impose a civil penalty and suspend the restaurant’s liquor license is thus
supported by substantial evidence and is not arbitrary and capricious.
Affirmed.

ILLINOIS DRIVERS LICENSE AND ID CARDS

 

Preventing underage sales of alcohol begins with properly checking identification. Illinois drivers licenses and identification cards (ID’S) have been redesigned to prevent tampering. The new licenses and ID’s are color coded, consisting of security film and is laminated in plastic to deter any forgery or alteration. Tampering is easier to spot and the new licenses and ID’s are more durable.

 

If you are not sure of an ID’s authenticity you have the right to refuse service. It would be helpful to have an ID checking guide on the premises of all 50 states.
