Event venues in the Commonwealth of Virginia might ask their customers for liquor liability insurance.
The tl/dr version: Liability insurance is not legally required.
The Commonwealth of Virginia (and also the State of Maryland) does not have dram shop laws, which are laws that allow a person (who was harmed because of a drunk driver from your party) to sue establishments or bartenders (or hosts of parties) for damages.
If your event center is demanding liquor liability insurance because you want to have a bartender serve drinks at your party, educate them on the need for one.
Read the excerpt below that I pulled from another website:
UNDERSTANDING DRAM SHOP LAWS AND DUI IN VIRGINIA
Breit Cantor Grana Buckner May 26, 2017
When a person is harmed because of a drunk driver, it is the injured person’s right to file a civil lawsuit to seek damages from the liable party. In some states, the law allows the wronged party to take it a step further under “dram shop” law, or social host liability. Each state has its own laws for this, and Virginia is one of the states that does not have dram shop liability.
What are Dram Shop Laws?
Dram shop laws allow the injured person to place responsibility for the incident on the establishment or person who provided the alcohol in the first place. These laws hold bars, restaurants, and other establishments that provide alcohol, legally responsible for over-serving intoxicated customers.
However, in the state of Virginia, the law holds that individuals are independently responsible for the injuries and damages caused because of their actions and intoxication. The provider of the alcohol is, therefore, not to be held responsible simply for providing the means.
As your bartender, I'm constantly evolving and improving myself for the betterment of your event! I went shopping today and enjoyed working with Monica Kumar of Aaheli by Monica to pick out some beautiful outfits that are appropriate for celebrations!
[05/30/19] Due to a family loss on the customer's end, the event I was set to bartend at tomorrow night (Friday) was cancelled. Let me know if you need a bartender!
[05/26/19] My Summer menu is now set with fresh tropical flavors! 😁😁😁
I have two Saturdays available in August - then my schedule is full for Summer Saturdays!
Ask about Friday or Sunday dates!
My customer worked hard to book me, throwing her party a week later to accommodate my schedule. I was very appreciative. She is wonderful and her party was a hit!
Hi Angela Smigel! Thanks for making my 40th so special ! My friends and family absolutely loved your drinks both cocktails and mocktails and we can’t wait to find an excuse to work with you again ! 😉You are amazing ! Thanks again !
My goal is to heighten the enjoyment of every party by serving beverages made with freshly made fruit syrups and Indian mixes. One of my customers recently asked me how it is that I know about Indian flavors...to which I responded: it's good business to know my customers and to know the flavors that they would enjoy! I'm a personal chef who bartends! 😊
Thanks Angela Smigel for the wonderful drinks yesterday. Your friendly, bubbly nature and an amazing blend of drinks made our party a success!! Thanks for being so accommodative with our last minute changes and being a wonderful person inside out. We loved you and recommend you to anyone wanting to taste a variety of Indian spiced drinks!! Thank you!!
Based on the feedback given by several customers, my rates are increasing slightly to cover the cost of the fruits and vegetables that I buy for the fruit syrups and mixes for events that I make.
The increase will only affect new bookings.
Good morning! Here are my last two available May weekend dates for bartending:
Friday, May 24 and Friday, May 31.
Fridays are fun days for parties! Spread the word, book now!
[05/13/19] I hope you're getting excited for my summer menu! 😊😊😊
