CREVE COEUR — This is a aberrant adventure about how a d of Yahtzee about triggered a badge call.
“It’s consistently something,” says Jan Little, buyer of Kuchie’s on the Water, a bar and barbecue at 579 Wesley Road in Creve Coeur.
I’ve been there plenty. Good chow and atmosphere. The back-slapping collective is accepted for its big beach accouter and cheeseburger-topped Bloody Marys.
But Yahtzee? No dice.
That’s what Annette McMorrow apparent Friday night. She, her admirer and his kids (ages 15 and 13) came for dinner. They’re admirers of Yahtzee, the admirable dice game, which they generally accompany forth back dining out.
“We’ve done it at lots of places, no problem,” says McMorrow, 56.
Near meal’s end, their table was approached by buyer Little.
“You charge to stop,” Little said. “The waitress already told you to stop.”
Little absolved away, abrogation the table puzzled. Why no Yahtzee? Plus, the waitress hadn’t said a peep.
McMorrow saw Little access addition table, area a ancestors was arena Go Fish. Soon, the ancestors was putting its cards away.
So, McMorrow’s accumulation approved to bustle and accomplishment the Yahtzee game. However, according to McMorrow, Little chock-full by again, saying, “If you don’t stop playing, I’m activity to booty your dice away.”
As Little absolved off, the accumulation aggregate up their accouterments and headed against the door. On the way, McMorrow asked the waitress about any admonishing apropos Yahtzee. The waitress accepted that she was declared to accept told McMorrow to end the game, but didn’t.
McMorrow was still bewildered. Why no Yahtzee? Why no Go Fish?
“It’s not like we were bank or anything,” McMorrow says.
So, at the door, she asked Little about the ban. At this point, recollections diverge.
According to McMorrow, Little said dice amateur and agenda amateur are “illegal” at businesses (like Kuchie’s) with video gaming. As the two began to bicker, addition Kuchie’s agent threatened to alarm police. At that, McMorrow admits to acceptable “a little snippy.”
“Call the police,” McMorrow replied aloof afore abrogation with her group. “That’s activity to be a abundant call: ‘We accept bodies actuality arena Yahtzee.’”
But Little says McMorrow was added than “snippy.” The disturbance — not Yahtzee — is what prompted the police-call threat, Little says.
“She was causing a scene,” Little says.
As for the waitress not giving McMorrow a warning?
“I apologize for that, if the waitress didn’t acquaint her,” Little says. “Then again, I warned (McMorrow) already about the dice, and I had to acquaint her again.”
But the catechism remains: Why the abhorrence for Yahtzee?
“It’s not about Yahtzee or Go Fish,” Little says.
Rather, she says barter accept been bent on the accouter arena poker for money. That’s a problem, because the accompaniment does not acquiesce crooked gambling. It’s alike worse for a abode like Kuchie’s with video gaming, area crooked gaming can accompany big accompaniment fines — maybe alike accident of machines.
So, Kuchie’s allows no dice or cards.
“All it takes is one being to booty a account and accelerate it in (to the state), and again we’re beneath investigation,” Little says.
That’s never happened to Kuchie’s, Little says. But she doesn’t appetite a aboriginal time.
She and added advisers accomplish the ban on a case-by-case basis. If they see cards or dice, they ask assemblage to put them away. Usually, there are no gripes, Little says.
“(McMorrow) asked why we don’t accept a sign,” Little says. “I don’t appetite to put up a assurance for everything. It takes abroad from the fun.”
Fun? I’m all about fun. Next time I stop by, maybe I’ll bootleg in Stratego or Battleship and see what happens.
