    Hi Everyone:

    I bought that groupon for those yard size drinks at PHO and I was wondering if the hotels other then PHO will let me take them inside. I have never bought these on a trip to Vegas usually just order off the floor but it was a decent deal on groupon so I bought 3.

    Any info would be great!:beer:

    Absolutely! You will see others with long drinks of all types and configurations walking down the sidewalks and in and out of all of the casinos.

    I bought the Groupon as well and plan to redeem it next week. Enjoy!

    yeah never seen anyone have a prblem taking it into the casino. Just dont think you can put it on the table. Plus it would be ridiculous..... You'd have to stand on your chair to take a sip out of it.

    just a side note. there are alot of sugar in those things and it will beat the crap out of your digestive tract(no pun intended) so make you u are drinking alot of water at night especially if you have more than one of those. Plus it will help with the hangover if you drink more than one.

    They would have to let you bring them in... seems like there is one of those drinks by the yard places every 100 feet or so in Las Vegas so they'd have no idea of knowing where you got it :) :) :)

    Your punishment for bringing a yard stick drink in to a casino is having to drink a yard stick drink. ;P

    I agree with Pop! :yuck:

    I bought one of those downtown. I dragged it all over downtown, then into the cab, then all over the Strip, then to Ellis Island for steak and karaoke. Then back in a cab, then back to The Strip, then things get blurry. :wink2:

    Also, you must carry it around all day with you because you believe you want to keep it. You put it in your luggage and find out you wasted your time because it cracked on the airplane. :)

    :evillaugh No problem with bringing any drinks in the casinos.
    I always bring a drink down in a plastic cup from my room when I start to play--that way I have a drink if service is slow--and if service it really bad have gone back to the room and made another:Þ

    Last april while in town I seen two guys drinking out of one they bought at Margaritaville, I asked how much they were. $36. Is that right? They are making a killing on them if that is right. I bet with the plastic glass and ingredients inside it cost them no more than $5 to make it. Pretty healthy profit.

    $36 sounds about right. It is about a pitchers worth of drinks.

    ~$10 for the glass
    ~$25 for the drink

    Those seem like prices I'd expect at any bar in Vegas. No way this is any worse deal than a $6 bottle of miller light or $8 captain and coke.

    Thanks everyone!

    I always wanted to try one of those yard stick drinks the groupon was the right price I bought 3 coupons = to 6 of those drinks. IT worked out to be $21 for 2 drinks so it cost me $63 for 6.:nworthy: Of course I will share these with hubby and we will use a coupon day. Considering we are there Jan 28 to Feb 1 should be quite the good time. I can hardly wait.

    woohoo Vegas here we come!

    P.S my friends hubby is a criminal lawyer so I think we got all bases covered :evillaugh
