Yeah BT does a seasonal haunted tour for Halloween. But I don’t know when they start them.

Technically, yes.
Discretion and not standing out , acting like an idiot, definitely applies here.

But, I haven't been on a Beach in Florida where, the Police are inspecting your cooler or cup.
As long as you have your own cup or Yeti, just pour whatever you're drinking in there and carry on.
Make sure to have a trash bag for empties and, empty in the nearest public trash can often.
Absolutely no glass.

I usually bring a mixer and a stainless decanter.
I normally go to Crescent Beach, Daytona Beach and sometimes, I'll get over to Porpoise Point in St Augustine.

This

Because of some awful antics in Panama City Beach during spring break about 10 years ago they enacted no alcohol on the beach for the month of spring break only. I think glass bottles on the beach are the only thing truly frowned upon otherwise.

This. You can drink anywhere you want, if you don't act like a fool.

This is stoopid- How does one get tech support for their drink? I’m trying out these new Truly Vodka seltzers instead of my favorite High Noons. Three cans are normal and the 4th acts more like a plastic bottle. When I hold it, the can squishes in like the can is opened. I’ve never had an aluminum can do this before. Is the drink still good?

No, but that's not taking the can into account

Truly was kind enough to send me a $12 gift card to buy more.
I went back one week later and they’ve been discontinued. :headslap: Guess I’ll go back to High Noon.
Anything with actual vodka and real sugar is what I’m looking for in a good flavor.

Just fix sprite and vodka and flavor with your favorite schnapps

Seedy’s brother goes to Woodford and stands in line when they release these collectors bottles. Each bottle has a letter that spells out Blantons in completion. His kids will inherit quite a collection one day.

Yep :facepalm:
Mea culpa - they live in Woodford Co
It’s obvious I don’t drink bourbon.
Haha, I actually don’t think Woodford is that far away from BT. Beautiful distillery

Shamefully BT is the only distillery I’ve ever been to before for a party.
The KY Castle was just sold for $19 million to the co-founders of Angel’s Envy
