(Some Guy)   Look, all we want is to make to-go cocktails for our customers. The liquor stores sell booze and the customers don't drink it there. Restaurants offer walk out meals with booze. Why not us?   (saltwire.com) divider line

Sir, this is an Arby's.

Because everyone knows that when you buy a bottle of booze form a liquor store that it is physically impossible to open it until you get home.

:-D

I think you've made their point.

You know, I might have been a bit more sympathetic if this hadn't been in there.

The two own Dear Friend, a cocktail bar and restaurant in downtown Dartmouth that's been victimized by lockdowns for fully a quarter of the time since its doors opened last July.

They weren't victimized. They had sh*tty timing. Timing is a real f*cker in the restaurant business. You can do everything right, and still fail spectacularly. This is one of those cases. You want to be special. In the end, you're a single bar that wants special treatment because...reasons. And the timing STILL sucks. Signature cocktails aren't an economic necessity. Nor do a whole lot of people in the community actually care, or they'd have taken it up for you.

Location, too. They'd have had better luck with a space in Halifax instead of across the bridge. In walking distance of the universities, instead of farkin' Dartmouth. Blue collar workers aren't a big market for signature cocktails.

It might be the straws that they include in the bag that are the sticking point. You get a closed up shake and no straw, you have a shake that is going to last all the way home. You get a cocktail with a straw, that sucker is pounded halfway before you get to the next light.

Used to be you couldn't have an opened bottle of booze in your car.  Cupholders have improved so you no longer soil yourself when you spill your drink.

They have a point that beer and wine can be sold and other provinces have let restaurants offer cocktails to go and the sky hasn't fallen. I can't see all that many people wanting to pay bar prices for a mixed drink to go but a few sales would be better than no sales.

Well take the Dartmouth ferry into the town, then.

Because I've never head of anyone getting killed due to "Driving while well-fed".

Fark isn't your personal erot...

Know what. At this point I think it's everyone's

Yeah, more booze. That's what we need. Booze ready to drink in a moving vehicle. 25% of all traffic deaths are thanks to booze. About 11,000 per year. Let's make it easier than taking a road pop from home. JFC.

I stopped at that paragraph. Nothing coming after it should be taken seriously.

I can buy a bottle of wine from the liquor store and get in my car. With the law changes thanks to Covid I can buy a bottle of wine with a sandwich to go and get in my car. Why can't I buy a mixed drink to go? A can of beer should fit in my cupholder just fine but I don't drink beer while I drive is a mixed drink somehow magically irresistible?

I personally think restaurants should be able to deliver packaged beer & wine, if delivered by an employee who checks ID. Why shouldn't you get a 6pack with your pizza, it would also stop a lot drunks from trying to drive to get more beer.

Fair and responsible reporting wouldn't use 'victimized by lockdowns,' unless in a quote by an anti-vax/mask idiot.

Future free/discounted drinks like typing detected.

victimized by lockdowns

Pffft. Fuq outta here.

In California carry-out alcohol was/is generally a no-no. With the pandemic in many places they relaxed this to allow patio dining and take-out. Which is nice, to, you know, be treated like an adult for a change instead of insisting on a bartender making sure you're not 'over-served' (that's the reasoning, anyway. Doesn't stop you from buying a 30-rack of Coors Lite at the liquor store down the block.)

I wonder, as the pandemic eases, if they will go back to the stupid old ways. If they do, I'm going to miss being able to buy a beer or wine to-go for the beach walk.

CaptainFatass: That was one of the most interesting things I found about Savannah, was the bars all offered drinks to go. But then you have to dodge families with their strollers on those narrow walkways without spilling your drink, so there's that...


Then you'll be thrilled when you go to NOLA!
