So, by that theory, if we stop buying drinks, the prices will come down. I for one, am happy to lead the charge against this exploitation. I am not, however, willing to suffer by practicing sobriety at the bars - it's not the alcohol's fault, after all; Jack Daniels is not the subject of my boycott. The only solution? Bringing my own stash of booze.
The flask is maybe the most underrated and underutilized tool at any drinker's disposal.
Now, most bars would probably frown upon the practice of bringing a flask in to mix your own cocktails. In fact, I would even say that some might go as far as to throw you out, or confiscate your flask! Indeed, to carry a flask, you must be bold, yet covert. You must be prepared to deal with any negative consequences. You have to be a renegade.
Once committed to this worthy task, you will find yourself pleased with the wide variety of uses for you and your trusty new best friend:
- sporting events
- amusement parks
- the beach
- nights spent gallavanting on the town
- and of course, expensive bars
All this, and you will be drinking for a cause! Sticking it to the man! You will be living the dream; the rebellious life of a revolutionary!
Hail to the flask!
