(Critical) Repeat violation 4 out of last 5 inspections. Informal hearing required. Once again, the dishmachine was found not sanitizing again. The 5 gallon bucket of sanitizer had lost its strength, due to not enough use of the dishmachine. When we loaded a new sanitizer bucket the strength came out 100ppm. Staff must be using test papers everyday to check dishmachine. Dishmachine is sanitizing properly now.

Please repair the leaking faucet on the handsink in the kitchen.

Please repair the beer cooler at the bar as it is holding stagnant water in the bottom. Clean bottles of beer that are in that water today and do not store bottles down there until cooler is repaired.
