STARTING with classes last year: ABC CLASS STUDENTS MUST go ONLINE to TN ABC before attending a class and pay $20 for your card via the RLPS system. GOOGLE: TN RLPS.  There is a yellow line on that page to click to get to the RLPS but before you do, there is a tutorial button on the left for you to check out at any time you get frustrated!  Look for the video tutorials: server permit tutorial. Keep going back and you will get through the process.  Make sure to upload a CLEAR picture of your photo I.D.  Once you are issued a 19A-NPER-SER-######, you are able to attend any class! Bring the 19A-etc.  number to the instructor.


Fill out the form as shown in the tutorial and REMEMBER the password and email address listed as this is how you will be able to print out your SERVER PERMIT after you pass the class!

If you have your 19A-NPER-SER-###### number from the state you are good to go…no reservation needed, just show up on time with cash for the class. 

No class Monday 6/24 due to Family Reunion…extra class: Friday 6/28 at 9am at La Quinta Inn 120 S. Cartwright Ct., Goodlettsville TN 37072–BE ON TIME!

                  MON/TUE/WED/THURS:  10:30 a.m. THE CRYING WOLF 

         AND ONE SUNDAY OF THE MONTH @ 1 P.M. ~ (June 9th, July 21st!)

                                        823 Woodland Street 37206   

    I am only doing ONE SUNDAY class @ 1 p.m. MONTHLY at THE CRYING WOLF, due to poor attendance…maybe with one a month I’ll get a full class.

Park out back behind the CRYING WOLF, please.  It’s a big parking lot! Walk up the wooden stairs~ to paradise… or your ABC class.

       ~~The ABC has changed the procedure and, for all classes ~~ ALL students MUST register at the TABC website BEFORE attending  a class!  You flat out HAVE TO FILL OUT THE FORM on the state’s RLPS website before you take any ABC CLASS and you MUST bring your RLPS (19A-NPER-SER-######) number with you for your instructor or you simply CAN NOT take the class!!  End of story!  You may attend ANY scheduled ABC CLASS once you have submitted info and paid the state $20.00 for your card online.   I am asking you nicely to come to one of MY classes so we can have a good time (schedule above & below) and I can make some dough. Make sure the upload of your I.D. to the state is crystal clear or it will slow down your turnaround time for your card, which you should be able to print out via your email account in a few days, after the class you take is processed by the state.

Server Permits:

The TABC will continue to publish content and tutorials to their RLPS page. Try googling “TN ABC homepage” and go to the RLPS line to see what to do.  There is a line for video turorials –go there and watch the SERVER PERMIT one. SAVE YOUR WORK every 5 minutes or so when you are filling out your app. online, because there is a time limitation and if you hit that time and haven’t saved your entered information, you will have to start all over!  Don’t do that!!

Bring some lunch money!  And a sweater– it can be a little chilly!
If you are sick, please do not come until you are well–don’t make the rest of the class sick…it is bad juju.
I am Mickey McConnell and this is Funnyman’s Daily ABC Class. I teach Responsible Alcoholic Beverage Service Classes, so servers, bartenders, and managers can get an ABC Card, aka a server permit, making it legal for them to serve alcohol in Tennessee. The Tennessee Alcoholic Beverage Commission says you must take a class in responsible alcohol service to serve booze in a licensed facility in the state. They do not say that the class has to be boring! If you are offended by PG or even R rated comedies, perhaps you should take someone else’s class. I don’t want to make anyone uncomfortable, but I want to entertain you for 5 hours.
I offer you the opportunity to take an ABC class which is upbeat, informative and oddly enough, fun! I promise to show up each day ready to rock and roll, ready to have a great time as we go through the required material to satisfy the state’s demands.
If you show up ON TIME, with a positive attitude and Seventy U.S. dollars cash money, and a gov’t. issued photo i.d., you can take the class. You may also use the paypal link on this page to pre-pay. Print out and bring the paypal receipt if you don’t have any cash.  I do not take personal checks.  

Life Happens! You might want to call 615-491-5880 the day before or at 9:30 a.m.-ish on the M/T/W/Th, or noon-ish on Sunday to make sure the game is on. I’ve only missed nine classes in fourteen years, but better safe than sorry.
Policy of the Tennessee Alcoholic Beverage Commission: As of FEB. 9 2018, the cost of a server permit is $20.00 u.s.d paid online BEFORE you take a class. Policy of Mick: the cost of the class is $70.00 bucks cash paid at the class or via paypal above.
