The party's over, kids.  If you're under 21 and consuming alcohol in North Myrtle Beach, be aware that the police department just stepped up their enforcement game thanks to a grant. 

The grant means more enforcement officials on the task, educating businesses, providing promotional materials, and making arrests of those selling or providing alcohol to minors, and targeting the minors, themselves.  For the full story, check out this WMBF story.  For more information about underage alcohol provision and consumption, including laws and penalties for breaking them, have a look at the Alcohol Policy Information System South Carolina page
