Just got back from walmart.
They have 32 oz reuseable red solo cups for $2.
I'm heading to Wally World. I wonder when some street vendor will start hawking them.
What was the dilemma? And where is WalMart from the strip?
Glad it was solved!
No drinking on the strip?
I might buy a bunch of them and sell them to passes by out front of the abc store.
Strip is still okay; the new regulation is for downtown.
Won't work. When you buy your booze from one of the sundry stores, and take it out of the store and pour it into your cup, you are now in immediate violation. Opening pre-packaged liquor on the Fremont Street Mall is illegal now.
Since the ABC stores have a license to sell alcohol, would they be able to sell draft beer or liquor served in cups? Does that require some sort of bar license or pouring license in NV?
ABC store will probably allow you to pour you drink into a cup and discard the bottle before you even leave.
Or you could be a little more discreet about it
I think restrooms on FSE are going to be busy. People will be ducking into them, opening their package liquor, and pouring it into cups.
As I understand it, if the latest proposed rules go through (end of summer maybe) the stores will have to give you your purchased alcohol in a bag that is stapled shut.
They just need to do what New Orleans does and have kegs in every store and to go cups with cans or bottles.
1- buy beer it abc store
2- go to nearest bathroom in casino
3- pour beer into cup
Walking around with beer in a cup sucks.
It is illegal to open your purchased alcoholic beverage inside the store.
1. Bring your liquor & mixers and/or your beer into your hotel room. And a cooler or a large throw-away Rubbermaid tub which you can get at any Food-4-Less for $6.
2. Fill cooler or tub with ice from the hotel's ice machines and chill your schwag down.
3. Bring large plastic drink containers with secured lids and built-in straws (such as sports bottles).
4. Open your booze bottles and fill your drink containers IN YOUR ROOM. Cops can't see what you're doing in your hotel room (yet).
5. Start getting loaded in your room with a few extra drinks before you leave.
6. Hit Fremont with a few in you and a full portable plastic no-spill container full of your favorite alcoholic beverage.
Yes, it takes a little extra effort, but this is a classic money-saver that I've used for years on the strip. And now it'll serve me well downtown also.
You don't have to go to the bathroom, you only need to step inside one of the casinos... or to be technical you only need to be on casino property so if they have some space out front of the property that is theirs and not the city's you would be ok if you are on that and opening your bottle/can as long as you are more than 1000 feet from where you purchased your drink.
This whole "no original container" thing is because the bars on Fremont Street lobbied the city to pass this ordinance to get people to spend more in bars and not just go get their drinks from the souvenir shops... if you want to be a jerk about it technically you should be able to just step inside one of the bars and pop your drink open and pour it in a cup and then leave
Agree wholeheartedly. I always thought it better to load up in the room a bit before stepping outside into Vegas proper. I always feel ten times more handsome that way, too.
So every time I want another beer I have to go all the way up to my room? That especially sucks if I'm in another casino.
There is no silver lining in this law. It's a ridiculous inconvenience that makes me want to return less and less.
