Funnyman's Daily ABC Classes

I am Mickey McConnell and this is Funnyman's Daily ABC Class. I teach Responsible Alcoholic Beverage Service Classes, so servers, bartenders, and managers can get an ABC Card, aka a server permit, making it legal for them to serve alcohol in Tennessee. The Tennessee Alcoholic Beverage Commission says you must take a class in responsible alcohol service to serve booze in a licensed facility in the state. They do not say that the class has to be boring! If you are offended by PG or even R rated comedies, perhaps you should take someone else's class.  I don't want to make anyone uncomfortable, but I want to entertain you for 5 hours.

I offer you the opportunity to take an ABC class which is upbeat, informative and oddly enough, fun! I promise to show up each day ready to rock and roll, ready to have a great time as we go through the required material to satisfy the state’s demands. 

If you show up ON TIME, with a positive attitude and sixty-five U.S. dollars cash money, and a gov't. issued photo i.d., you can take the class.  You may also use the paypal link on the sidebar to pre-pay. Print out and bring the paypal receipt if you don't have any cash.   I do not take personal checks 

If you would like me to pick up your card and mail it to you bring an extra $20 and .50 cents-or a stamp- and I will do so.  If you want to pick up your own card at the ABC office (click the link below for directions), you must take them a 20 dollar MONEY ORDER or CASHIERS CHECK--they will no longer accept cash. 

Life Happens! Check my calendar or call 615-491-5880 the day before or at 9:30 a.m.-ish on the T/W/Th or 4p.m.-ish M or noon-ish on Sunday to make sure the game is on. I've only missed five classes in twelve years, but better safe than sorry.           

 Policy of the Tennessee Alcoholic Beverage Commission: As of  June 8 2010,  the cost of a server permit is $20.00 u.s.d and the cost of the class is $70.00 bucks.  Another big change is the TABC is now asking for a five day turnaround time for picking up your server permit--no more instant karma of picking up your card the next afternoon if you need it on the was fun while it lasted, but it is no longer acceptable to the powers that be.  Also the ABC will no longer accept cash for your ABC card--only cashiers checks or money orders for $20.About This >>

It would be a GREAT IDEA for you to call 615-741-1602 x 0 and be sure that the class has been entered into the computer BEFORE YOU DRIVE DOWNTOWN, to be sure that you are in the system.   You can pick your card up at the TABC office:The Davy Crockett Tower: 500 James Robertson Pky,  3rd floor Nashville TN 37243  between 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Try not to arrive at the office after 3:30 P.M.--you'll just upset the ladies of the state and that is a VERY BAD IDEA.   

If you don’t need your card immediately, you can mail your application to the  TABC at the address listed above (500 James Robertson...) with a twenty dollar cashiers check or money order made out to the TN. ABC, and they will send it to you, at their leisure,  to the address you put on your yellow form!                 

I strongly suggest that you take the application down to the ABC office rather than mailing it, because ....well, trust me...just because.

Fun Facts!

Women metabolize (break down) alcohol more slowly than men because there is a smaller amount of alcohol metabolizing enzyme (alcohol dehydrogenase) in the stomach in women. Because less enzyme is present, more alcohol passes through the stomach to the duodenum, the main alcohol-absorbing portion of the gut. This effect, combined with a different fat/lean body makeup between men and women, leads to higher blood alcohol levels (BACs) in women than men after identical alcoholic drinks. (February 7, 2000)
