Oops: Applebees serves Toddler margarita in a sippy cup
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/19252488/?GT1=10056

ANTIOCH, Calif. - Kim Mayorga was confused when her 2-year-old started making funny faces and pushing away the apple juice he had ordered at Applebees. The explanation came when she opened the lid of the sippy cup and was hit by the smell of tequila and Triple Sec.

The restaurant staff accidentally gave Julian Mayorga a margarita Monday. He grew drowsy and started vomiting a few hours later and was rushed to the hospital. I wasnt going to make a big deal about it, the mother told the Contra Costa Times on Thursday, but then he got sick.

The apple juice and margarita mix were stored in identical plastic bottles, and the manager mistakenly grabbed the margarita container to pour the boys drink, said Randy Tei, vice president for Apple Bay East Inc., which owns the franchise restaurant and nine other Applebees in the San Francisco Bay area. The Mayorgas will be reimbursed for their medical bills, and Tei said the franchise groups restaurants will no longer serve apple juice and margaritas in similar containers. We absolutely believe it was an honest mistake, Tei said.

The serving appeared to have been accidental, Antioch police Lt. Pat Welch said. Mayorga said her son is now doing fine. She said the company has been very apologetic and offered free meals, but she added, If they think Im going back there, theyre ridiculous.

1. Typical poor service from Applebees
They could've at least given him a glass.
