Editor's Note: the following statements are from health inspection reports submitted in December, January and February.

They have spoken to Eco Lab about this. Inspector will have them pre-wash with brush in sink, then wash as usual. Other bar glasses good. Sanitizer concentration in dishwasher a little too high. Decrease to 50-100 ppm.
Re-inspection, Dec. 7, 2012: one violation, glass mugs. Paper towels on handwash station corrected, good. Changing station disposable pads are available, good. Glass mugs have excessive water stains. Glasses need to be hand-washed. Lipstick smudges on glass rim. This issue needs to be corrected or you will need to serve from plastic cups. Board of Health will reinspect in two weeks. Handwash all glasses prior to washing in dishwasher until next inspection.
Re-inspection, Jan. 4: No violations. Manager has had Eco Labs at facility on several occasions. Addressing the quantity of bar glasses and water stains, etc. Dishwasher is currently a low temperature unit. That will be changed back to a high-temperature machine by installing a booster heater.
