It’s been a long week in Phoenix and I’m waiting for a red eye so I decided to hit up the Phoenix Roadside 66 in the B concourse of PHX. Since it’s an HMS Host establishment I know I’ll have to present ID for any alcohol purchase. I went through the TSA checkpoint with my passport card so that is most accessible. I present that to the waitress. She asks “do you have your passport?” No. I pointed out the birthday on the ID, but she says it’s a state law that she can’t accept it. Really? I looked up the AZ state laws and it says “border crossing cards” from federal governments are acceptable.
I can use my passport card to clear TSA and to clear CBP, but I can’t use it to buy a beer in AZ? Really?
Tip docked for lying.
