    I don't care to hear about the morality of it!

    What is the best way to sneak booze into the Flamingo pool?

    Thy are pretty diligent at looking...but I was considering buying a fake sunscreen bottle that you can put alcohol in...will it work?

    Use rumrunners and anything like it and put it in your pocket.

    Just kidding, would like to know if they check bags at Aria pool too

    To this day, I've snuck over 100 beers into that pool. You have to know, the Flamingo is VERY strict about checking bags, more than any other pool I've been to.
    I can't give away my secret, but it works 60% of the time, all the time! :)

    When I was younger and heading to a concert, my friends and I would bring a length of plastic tubing usually 3/8 or 1/2" and 2 corks, we would fill it up with whatever booze we could come up with. We (usually me) would run the hose around the neck and down both sides of my body going into my pants and down to my boots. It would hold quite a lot of booze in there. A shirt and towel cover up a lot of area that could be used.
    Otherwise here in MN, Mystic Lake was a dry casino until recently and my friend would fill up empty bottles of that 5 hour energy stuff, each bottle was almost 2 ounces and he could easily add it to his soft drink and nobody would bat an eye at some degenerate gambler pouring 5 hour energy into his lemonade.

    Idea
    Go through security. The entrance is the only place there is tight security.
    Go to a secluded area of the perimeter and have your friends throw the alcohol of your choice over or through the fence.

    I took a bag full of beers and throw them over the fence. Fortunately for me, I saw the woman I was sitting next to on the flight and she let me put the beers and her bag because she was already on the other side. I went around with nothing in my hands, went to the section I threw the beers over. There you go

    Lucky for me, this woman and I were vibing the whole flight over. Unfortunately, her husband who she hates, was sitting 10 rows back.

    Cargo shorts side pockets hold quite a bit. I've sneaked 4 cans of beer into football games before, 2 in each pocket. They are pretty anal about checking bags but never have my cargo shorts pockets been checked by anyone. Put a beer or something in your bag and let them think they caught you to lessen the suspicion. As for the morality, it's an immoral policy. You are a paying guest of the hotel. It's absurd that they want to limit what you can eat and drink while using the facility that you are paying for. Sneak in as much as you can, I say!

    Do you carry a bag, purse or otherwise? If so, use a cough medicine bottle in he bag.

    (Far be it from me to do anything like this.) :)

    I've seen the sunscreen flask at my local beer store. It is pretty convincing. Looked 100% just like real sunscreen.

    Donny never reported back after his trip. Do you think he got busted and tossed into jail?!?

    This reminds me of some of the creative ways people used to sneak booze into the old Veterans Stadium in Philly.

    There were some guys in my family's section that took a wheelchair and altered it so a little half keg of beer would fit on the back and then they'd drape blankets over it and push one of the guys in...voila.

    That just sounds horrible! But then again pool prices in Vegas are horrible as well! And so are ballpark prices...$11.50 for 22 oz. of "premium beer", wtf?

    Yeah the upcharges for beverages at sporting events (and lets throw the movies in there too) and in tourist destinations are insane!

    I took a customer to an Astros game as his favorite team was in town. My expense report for refreshments only was well over $400 (there were four of us there). That is just nuts...especially for a team that has trouble drawing crowds.

    I could go on and on about the gouging and how it affects the sports growth. Taking a family of four to a ballgame is not cheap! This is one reason why I enjoy going to minor league ballgames and why I enjoy seeing families there too.

    When we want to sneak drinks into any pool area that doesn't allow you to bring your own, we get a couple of coffee cups (16 or 20 oz) with lids from the coffee shop (they usually just give them if you ask) and mix our drinks (strong ones) and just walk in acting like it's coffee. Never been stopped for having a 'coffee'.
