Champion's Pub and the Nordstrom Cafe Bistro will both be before the Peabody liquor board Monday night for serving alcohol to minors.
Licensing Board members said earlier this month that both establishments were caught up in a recent alcohol sting conducted by the Peabody Police Department.
Police randomly conduct compliance checks during the year at all businesses in the city that are licensed to sell or serve alcohol. Typically, underage college students are recruited as operatives to work with police.
The public hearing notice says the sting was conducted on June 21. Monday's hearing is scheduled for 7:15 p.m. in the basement conference room at City Hall.
In the past, the Licensing Board has given first-time offenders a warning and encouraged them to make sure their staff is properly trained to check IDs. Establishments with violations in recent years (or obstinate storeowners) tend to see their alcohol licenses temporarily suspended.
