the hiding of the booze.

Post by l... »

whether it be a flask, or a purse beer to be hidden and drank in some random bathroom....tis a good thing. i'm not talking about a bar, i'm talking about the general public. satchels are nice. :) tomorrow i go to rib cook off, (or today, depending on how you think of it), and will definitely be bringing a carry on.

p.s. i wish i still had a camera to take pics of said ribs. and did i mention a flask?
That's what I call Drunkard justice. I hate prisses like that. They're mincing their way through life when they should be marching. ~fkr.

I wish i could find me a woman who drinks!~ruiner..on lack of women drinkers.

I like flasks but that's usually for drinking in the subway on the way to a bar, club, part, etc. I never tried drinking at work in an office type job. I"l love to try but I'm afraid I'd like it too much and "overindulge"

Im a flask carrier too, something I picked up from all the old movies I use to watch with my ma as a kid probably. I've found that a raw pint drawn in public will illicit glares, but a snort from a silver flask with its old world charm inspires almost wimsey from lookers on.

Well said! I like seeing people walking down the street drinking beer, wine, etc. But some reason when I see someone swig out of a flask in a park or wherever, I smile and nod and think "The real McCoy"

It depends on what you're going for. If I'm just incognito I roll with a Klean Kanteen and the Sports 2.0 cap. It just looks like a water bottle, and I've found the smell doesn't get out through the cap. If I'm out walking the neighborhood, I have a case of glass flasks that are throwaways. I buy a case once a year or so for about $25 and rarely take one out to throw away.

I have a couple of fast food joint plastic cups and a box of straws for the same purpose. They fit nicely in the drink holder in my car (I don't drink and drive, this is just to get somewhere) and are amazingly inconspicuous at train stops and such. The Baja Fresh cups with the lid and the straw with a plastic straw cap are the best. You can fit a tallboy in the cup, pop the can, and slide the straw right down into the mouth of the can. Budweiser/Clamato cans... oh, sweet ambrosia.

In high school, some of my fellow students used to put vodka in a Scope bottle and use green or blue food coloring to try to match the color. I think they would have been better off using aftershave bottles or cologne bottles, but who am I to judge.

You got your watered down Vodka in a ziploc bag, frozen to ice, smuggled on to a plane in a sammich cooler.

The problem is, flasks are too small. I'm not sure, but I think Ogger posted something about a giant flask, quite a while back?

What about a camel bag filled to the max? Worst case scenario, people will think you're a hunchback. But you'd be a happy hunchback.

ill have to give that one a try!

i usuly just use my stainless steel coffee mug, i throw some ice in it and fill with evan. either that or my flask. when i go to the fair or other events i usually bring my flask then ask for a cup of ice at one of the booths. fill it with bourbon and none is the wiser.

I like flasks (especally for long car trips) and even bought engraved ones for my groomsmen. The only reason i see that they are not quite as popular because you can get 20 oz sodas and make 1/2 and 1/2 coctails that look just like soda. much more "acceptiable" in appearnaces for the drys.

I'm just sipping from my--heh, heh--bottle of Poland Spring.

An airplane bottle rides well in a cargo pocket, I've found.

Or you could hang it off your ass, like a joy-filled fanny pack, and all the guys would think, "Baby got back!"

Never thought of to be honest. Giving that one a try. I Myself have a real flask which I use but I also have that last year's thing: The Boozeberry. Doesn't carry much but still nerdy cool. Somehow.

Thigh high stockings make lovely hiding places for a flask, if you're a girl. (or a special kind of boy.)
