Underage drinking is a serious problem in the U.S., and a recent sweep by the Illinois Liquor Control Commission showed 9 businesses allegedly sold alcohol to minors in Alton, with a 10th in Cottage Hills.  The sweep happened about a month ago.

The 10 locations that allegedly sold alcohol to minors were Riviera Maya, The Firehouse, Don & Penny's Restaurant, Spirits Lounge, Wayne Allen's, Chubby's Warehouse Bar & Grill, Marilyn's, the Ragin Cajun Piano Bar, and Cat Daddy's in Alton, as wellas Doc Holliday's Saloon & Eatery in Cottage Hills.
