I'm for it.

America is too damn prudish.

If it's in a sealed container I don't see why not. That could be a great new revenue stream for bars and restaurants.

Nothing, if you do it right.  Savannah has to go drinks for years and somehow it hasn't devolved into chaos.

We've learned a lot of things about business, work, play, and many other things during this time.

Not everyone is so fortunate to be able to do so but telework definitely needs to expand.

Never forget how ass-dirty your fellow humans are. They aren't clean right now, you think they're going to stay clean after we have widespread vaccinations?

Video games for everyone!

/even after things "open up" again i'm still gonna stay in my own home and rarely interface with the public to the greatest extent possible
//i was already doing that anyway!

The police around here would love the extra revenue for Transporting Open Container tickets.

"after the pandemic ends"  LOL.

Absolutely nothing worse than what's happened previously could go wrong. It was a stupid farking rule to begin with.

DRIVE-THRU COCKTAILS PLEEZE

So new cars will forgo the cup holder for a pitcher holder?

The whole thing seems weird, cocktails have a rather short shelf-life (which didn't matter if you're drinking it in the bar); ice, salt-rimmed margaritas, it seems like it would be a warm/flat/diluted mess by the time you got it home.
Can't blame them for trying, but shots and beers at my house are waaay cheaper.
And I serve after hours.

Skip the salted rim and pour it over ice at home.

Sure, it's pricier, but I like something different now and then.

Yup, I have been gleefully buying different types of booze to pad my bill, so I can help out my favorite local shops.

/Got a goooood hot sake yesterday when I admitted that I am unfamiliar with sake, and would like whatever the awesome granny who works there would suggest.
//I am expanding my horizons!
///three slashies for good local shops.

Louisiana's dry through daiquiri shops have been doing this for 30+ years. They put a piece of tape over the straw hole to make it a sealed container.

My wife came home with a 64 oz growler of margaritas for $30 earlier this week. It's different but I'd have trouble explaining why it's qualitatively different than going to the liquor store.

Why would we not already? We sell beer and every other type of alcohol to people, knowing full well that they are getting in to their cars and driving home. They drink at eateries, bars, strip clubs, grandmas house and still drive home.

If anything, I would think that they would be more in favor of this, after all, it could potentially drive up DUI revenue, which at this point, we all know, is what the cops are out there doing anyway.
