The Forum | FAQs


Alcohol Serving and Consumption

For most events at the Forum, alcoholic beverages are available for purchase.  Staff is trained in the National Restaurant Association Training program.  Alcohol sales will be limited to up to two alcoholic beverages per customer per transaction. Guests are not permitted to bring in alcoholic beverages from outside the Forum and may not leave with alcohol purchased at the Forum. Management reserves the right to refuse the sale of alcohol to any Guest.

All Guests may be required to show ID to purchase alcohol.  Please be aware that it is the policy of the Forum to require all Guests who appear to be forty (40) years of age or younger to present a valid form of ID with proof of age in order to purchase alcoholic beverages at the Forum.

Pursuant to applicable State law, the Forum will accept only identification cards issued by a governmental agency that include a current description and a picture of the person presenting it which reasonably describes the person as to date of birth weight, height, sex and color of eyes and hair.  The Forum will not accept an identification card that has been altered or has expired.  The Forum also will not accept a registration certificate issued under the Federal Selective Service Act.
