So I moved to Texas from Florida in April, I've been here seven months and I have never had a problem with getting a drink at a bar (No, I'm not 45+, I'll be 27 years old next month). There was this place I was going to regularly for about two months and I go in last night, I try to get a drink and some bartender I hadn't seen before asks for my ID... I give it to her and she asks if I have a Texas ID, I say no and then she goes on to tell me she can't serve me because she sees too many "fakes" from Florida.
Can't they check if your ID is valid? I'm going on 27 for fucks sake! I was so pissed off

As a bartender in Texas, the bartender has the right to refuse service to anyone. However... if your Florida ID isn't scannable like a Texas one, it is harder for a bartender to validate if it's a legit ID or not. However, she could have just had her manager check it out rather than just not serve you. I do know that Oklahoma ID are not usually accepted because there's a place right before you cross into Texas that will print you an ID card at their shop or you can even walk into grocery stores to have state ID made. That's a big reason why they are picky with out of state customers. Sorry you had to deal with her.1
