    I'll have to bring a plastic cup when I swing through Casino Royale for a Michelob.

    Seems like it will be way harder enforce on the strip. I dont exactly see them setting up little poker tables with plastic cups at the multiple entrances to these huge properties...

    I didn't like the new restrictions when they were brought to FSE - but I've got to admit it's not a big deal in practice. It's still possible to spot bottles there, but most are now gone. And, Security/Police haven't been too rigid about it. They seem to be approaching the issue as an educative one with the drinking public.

    Hard for anyone to get hurt too bad if they get hit in the head with a red-solo cup!

    From a litigious standpoint I suppose it makes sense with broken glass, used as weapons.....I have noticed a lot more breweries are selling cans that didn't previously like Sierra Nevada.

    Are cans treated differently than bottles or is it all original containers they don't want ?

    With all the broken glass on the strip, and people walking with sandals or barefooters carrying their high heels on their shoulder, I think this is a good idea.

    Alcohol in a big gulp container Miles Teller-style in The Spectacular Now would be the way to go.

    There's a bit of a revolution in the [micro]brewing industry. Canning technology has improved to the point that it can offer the same 'delivery' (to your mouth) that bottles do (look up the Sam Can for more info). And cans protect better against light and air damage. There are also some cons but I don't think the move towards canning has anything to do with preventing broken glass from being used as a weapon.

    As for the topic at hand. Kind of a bummer. I like going to Casino Royale and buying 4 bottles at once to carry with me...
