They know how to spot a fake
No matter how much you paid for that fake ID and how casually you can say that your birth year is 1987 and not 1990, you will get your ID confiscated at Boston liquor stores. You may have memorized that your “of age” alter ego lives at 123 Maple Drive and figured out their astrological sign, but it’s still going into one of those big sacks of IDs that police officers dramatically empty onto a stage during orientation week. This city is crawling with college students, and trust me, your fake ID does not make you the Dark Knight of procuring alcohol. Use it at the few places in the city that look the other way that you’ll inevitably hear about via word of mouth.
