You can get most senior discounts at 55 if you remember to ask. Now if your at the "full retirement age" for social security and you can fake that your 70, You can pick up a grand or more a month.
I've been sadly disappointed to find most establishments have moved to 60+ for a senior discount.......except Coco's restaurant, lol.

I had one, it was real just not me. Found a wallet in the middle of a street in Oceanside. Dude looked like my doppelgänger. It was meant to be so I kept that and destroyed rest of contents. No money or credit cards. Worked perfect until I turned 21 including Vegas. That was young and dumb me, now days I would try to return it.

We somehow found a shop that made props for plays, movies etc around town and they made ID props. They looked pretty horrible, the color was off, the font was different and the Mobil down the street took them.

Of course there were a couple of places a minor could buy in Albuquerque. Playdeep will remember them. One was an Italian restaurant with a drive thru window at Eubank and Menaul, and the other was a liquor store with a drive through located on North 4th Avenue.

That store was owned by the wife of an Albuquerque cop. I was always surprised at how many kids were able to buy there. The drive thru was a busy place on weekends.

My sister was attending UNM when I was 17, and she was the campus rep for Olympia beer. We could go to the distributor's warehouse and buy broken cases of Oly for $4 a case, plus get free swag.

This was handy for Elephant Butte lake trips. We figured a case per person per day, and that worked out well.

Never had fake ID. Worked at a Uno-Cal 76 at 17, and with a greasy uniform on, (also standing 6'3") I was never questioned.

I got carded a few days after my 21st birthday, at Safeway, for a 12 pack.

I got my first seniors discount at Del Taco 2 weeks ago...I guess I'll take it, but I still have 6 years before I'm eligible for that...kids these days...

Bonus question; What was the name on the ID? (assuming you didn't have a fake in your own name)

I had one with all my brothers info and my picture. Went to the license branch with his info and boom! I was 21. :) Of course his license was now no longer valid. But being the straight lace top of guy he is was never a problem.

Buddy was the manager at a ski rental shop.
If you didn't have cash or a credit card to leave as a deposit on a rental he would hold your id.
People left or forgot their ids all the time. He gave me one the looked more like me than mine at 18.
Highschool. There was always some older dudes around that were or wanted to date my sister. A Chinese restaurant/ bar (BoBos) and a couple getto liquor stores that didn't card.

Started playing in bar bands when I was 17, so started dating older girls and or the bar tenders/owners didn't care. One bar Ewalds under the bridge on the river I would run in and say I was paying my dad's bar tab and the beer would be set outside the back door. Grab it and down the river we went.

Yep. Before computers stored data, my friend was about a year older than me. By description we could be the same person. So he let me go to the dmv claiming to be him, saying I lost my license and needed a duplicate. Worked great since it was real. His name and data, my picture.

Only issue was going to bars together. I’d have to wait about 1/2 hour or so before trying to get past the bouncer…

Never needed one.

In Colorado, at 18 you could buy 3.2 beer at the grocery store, gas station or liquor store.

There was always someone who looked older that could get hard liquor for you.

Never had one.....Just showed my real d/l and hoped the guy was too dumb to do the math. Most of the time it worked, I guess they figgered if I was ballsy enough to show an ID I must be old enough.
This is what I did. It worked pretty well at the local hangouts, until the police checked out the place and asked for my ID. I ended up in the drunk tank for the night. Somebody got lucky though (or maybe not?), because I stuffed two ounces of weed into the back seat of the cop car.

When I was 15 my brother went to Palomar college for awhile.. he brought home a student id and it looked pretty “blah”.. I told my buddy we could make one that looks more legit than that..

You have to remember the ink jet printers were really expensive and not very mainstream at the time but it just so happened.. I had one. lol

It worked virtually everywhere.. so at 60.00 a pop that was one of my first and to this day most profitable business’s..

Lasted for about six months before stores stopped accepting them.. but the one liquor store down by Carlsbad village drive with the neon pig in the window I’m pretty sure would accept them to this day.

Finally one day I got a visit from the cops at school asking if I was the one making fake ID’s.. which I denied.. when they presented one to me and said the kid said he got it from me. I again denied it but upon looking at it informed them it wasn’t a state ID so I’m not even sure what the crime would actually be, but if they wanted to continue the conversation further they could call my old man and I’m sure he’d be happy to come down with a lawyer and discuss whatever they wanted to talk about up to and including interrogating a minor without the parents present.. and that was the end of my little fake Id biz..

By then my brother had joined the military and he was pretty careless leaving his military ID around.. one day he asked me if I had it which I said no.. he explained how much trouble he was gonna get in if he didn’t have it.

I used that thing for years. lol

I used my roommates military reserve ID. Only got questioned once, had to sign my name. I signed his, the guy handed me back the ID and all was good. Another time 3 of us headed into a bar. Legit guy used his drivers license, I used his reserve ID, a friend used his pilots license. The doorman asked if we were brothers.

When I was under the drinking age limit (19) of my state, New Mexico, I conspired with a couple of friends to make a giant DL from poster board and cut letters and numbers. A large square in the upper left section of the board was cut out. Two loops were attached to the back.

After a couple of practice shots with my Polaroid camera to get the photo size correct, we went into the business of making Idaho driver's licenses. We figured no one in New Mexico knew what an Idaho license looked like, and this was way before the 50 state images of DLs was printed in book form for Rahnese and his fellow convenience store clerk buddies.

Mine worked for a little more than a year, then the state lowered the drinking age to 18 so I no longer needed the fake ID.

:D
Damn Ron...that brings back great memories. My very first fake i.d.
You loaned that board to Mark Harrell.
We all made fake i.d.'s off of it. in his backyard.. Worked very well.
Remember driving down to Liz's Olympia lounge on Edith?
That's where everyone went.

Borrowed my brothers old military dependent ID card when I was 19 and went to Tahoe. I always looked pretty young but resembled my brother so....It was expired but I got carded as I was walking around the casino as soon as I stepped foot in there. The security guy did not notice it was expired and accepted it. I made sure to have small talk with him and got his name so he would remember me. About an hour later I went to the security office and reported my wallet lost. Referenced the security guard that had ID me and asked them to make sure that I could have any security guard call the office for confirmation of being age OK as I now did not have my wallet. IT WORKED perfectly :) I walked around Harrahs with no further problems with the ID checks.....lol

I was born in 1962. I was able to make the 2 look close enough to a zero by scraping on it and using a black pen. Worked ALMOST every time.........

Not ID related but reminded me of a little scam I pulled on parking. It was actually quite brilliant...lol

I pull up to a very crowded concert deal that was going on. No parking anywhere so I went straight up front and noticed all the cars had parking tickets on them. I just casually parked, got out, grabbed a ticket off of one of the cars, slapped it on my windshield and went on my way. Came back later took the ticket off my windshield and drove away. Somebody got a over due ticket mailed at some point but not me. Turned out to be a great day :)

Fun memories! As I posted above, there was talk that Liz's was owned by the wife of an APD detective, but never definitive proof. The other go to place for alcohol purchases was the drive through on the southwest corner of Eubank and Menual, next to the big automatic car wash and Pizza Hut.

About that same time, my sister was appointed as campus rep at UNM for Olympia Beer. She could buy unlimited amounts of Oly for $4 a case. This was great for trips to Elephant Butte. The standard calculation for beer quantities was one case per person per day.

One trip to the lake produced some comical moments. I was with Tom Johnson, Rick Q, and Jimmy Mangham when we went into the Elephant Butte Inn around 3 AM looking for some girls we knew staying there, and discovered we could just walk into the unlocked kitchen. We made sandwiches.

There was an untapped keg of Coors in the walk in cooler, and as I was carrying it down a corridor on the way out of the hotel, I dropped it. We were sure the loud "bong, bong, bong" as it bounced would wake up someone, but we escaped with the loot.

😁

The best fake ID I saw was this kid I knew that went to a boarding school back east. Bunch of wealthy kids who were basically on their own and trading tips. One of the kids had a diplomatic ID, the kids figured out how to forge them and they all these fake diplomat ID’s

Knew a guy who once got pulled over. When he opened his wallet for the LEO, 2 CA Driver's Licenses were there. One was fake. But was so good, the officer said, OK obviously one of these is NOT real. That earned him one night in the "straight bar motel".

No fake ID but walked into a liquor store with my older girlfriend and her two kids. I'm obviously underage but set a couple bottles on the counter. The checker stares at me, looks down at the two kids, stares at me again and rings me up.
Probably figured I needed a drink.

I never did but my fiancée did. Fake IDs are easy to come by nowadays but the kicker is CA is very hard to duplicate so most are out of state. The out of state part would always get the IDs questioned, so my buddies and I had all of our girlfriends get the same state and they would say they were in CA for college, as long as we were together no one ever got caught.

… never had a fake ID… But there was a beer bar in Van Nuys. Ca. called the Pier 7… Where our bunch pretty much hung out every Friday night… Couple of my friends were maybe two years younger than me, so there was always a designated person… I think usually a girl, who would take my ID …walk out to the parking lot give it to one of the guys who would subsequently come in …he would get past the bouncer… Wash rinse repeat for the second friend …🤷🏽‍♀️

… before that in high school… We occasionally would cut a class… And drive to one of two stores… One of which was the Rodriguez Market in Orcas…A Hispanic little barrio with quite a reputation… They would occasionally sell to us… it still says Rodriguez Market on the side of the building… But I do believe it is a residence now???…
…The other store was at the end of the runway… near the Burbank airport, on San Fernando Rd… I found out later it was owned by a friend of mine‘s grandfather… They always sold to us… We were like 16 at the time 🤷🏽‍♀️

Born in 66, home state had paper licenses back in the day, scratched out the lower left corner of the OCR 6 and turned it into an OCR 4, which turned me from 16 to 18 (drinking age at that time). I would use my paper drivers license with my high school picture ID. Sometimes bouncers would question it, and I would act really offended and tell them that I'm just a little slow and got held back...

Tried to use my brothers ID one time at a 7-11 to buy beer. Girl behind the counter looks at it and says that's not you. I called BS and said it absolutely is me, just look at the picture. She said she doesn't need to looks at the pic because she went to school with Pete (my bro), and I ain't Pete! Fortunately she gave his ID back to me, but I still had to walk the walk of shame...

Yes. Ages 19 and 20. Went to Vegas at 20 with my dad...made about $3500 gambling! I must have had 50 security people ask for my ID and no one suspected it wasn't genuine. My baby face got me carded nonstop, but worth the risk of spending the weekend with my dad in what was the greatest city.

Took the same ID, which was my driver's license that was altered to Detroit to gamble new years eve 2004! That night the head security guy gave me a casino wrist band that told everyone I was 21!

Mind you this was 21 years ago. I believe IDs have gotten harder to fake.

Great memories

They weren't a thing when I came up. We had numerous local establishments that would sell minors booze. If that didn't work we always knew someone over 21 who would pimp us booze.

F*** yea I did.

it was cool but it got old when I couldn’t go to bars with any of my buddies cause they weren’t old enough and didn’t have fake id’s. Plus I’d get a call every night wanting me to go buy beer for everyone. The guy who worked at the liquor store know to sell to underage stopped carding me when I came in 4-6 times a week.

Growing up in Yuma in the 60’s we had Willie. An old homeless black guy that lived in a mostly burned up abandoned house behind a mom and pop grocery store. As long as we bought him “a taste” we were good to go. An 8 pack of Coors TIny’s and off to the school dance. The good old days, a pack of Marlboro reds were a quarter in the machine so nobody asked for id either.

I never needed one. I used to ride a dirtbike or drive a truck to the local bar and get a 12 pack and a box of Marlboro reds for my dad at age 12. I'd say put it on my dad's tab with a note from my dad

My friend Karen had one. She hung out a one bar regularly using her fake ID for access without incident.

On her 21'st birthday a group of friends had a little party for her at their regular bar.

The waitress asked what the occasion was, and Karen replied it was her 21st birthday.

The waitress who had been serving her for years was a little nonplussed but at that point what could she do but continue serving. LOL
