According to an article published in the The Lansing State Journal, more than seven Lansing bars have been cited for serving alcohol to minors and other underage drinking violations. Area bars also have problems with fighting and capacity violations. The problems led to the closing of a local bar, Dooley's, which will likely lose its liquor license and remain closed indefinitely because of repeated violations. At least one Michigan State bar-goer has not noticed big problems with the area bars. "Once you get away from Dooley's the bars are pretty nice," said recent MSU graduate Paul Lyons. "Most bars are pretty crowded and there are always a lot of lines, but I haven't really seen any problems." Dooley's in Ann Arbor closed more than four years ago because of similar violations. It was replaced by Scorekeepers on Maynard Street.
