    It would be interesting to hear some LEOs give their interpretation of open container laws.


    That being said I think common sense dictates the owner researched itdeeply and is complying with the absolute letter of the law in conducting business. Especially in an alcohol busineese that is closely monitored.

    You do realize that most of the country is in a state of emergency/stupidity/panic. A lot of states/cities relaxed liquor licensing rules to allow things like this to keep people employed. If there is a lid on it and no straw I'd roll the dice taking that charge to court any day of the week...

    Same concept is why growlers are allowed...in some places they tape the lids shut..other states they don't...by your logic thats also and open container.

    This business operates exact same way year round. They are doing it the same they would be even without this going on.

    Knowing how conservative most small Texas towns are, I'm kind of surprised that town approved that business and gave them a liquor license.

    Not saying that it shouldn't be up to people to drink responsibly, but to me, it's almost like buying a milkshake. Most people typically don't wait until they get home to drink it, but rather take a few slurps out of it while it's nice and cold and frozen.

    Louisiana will be Louisiana. Entirely different state with different characteristics.

    Wow. Even NV (Vegas) made liquor stores close.

    Exactly, you can't even get folks to stay home as asked and you expect them to not start drinking something in a container like this.

    Then that's on you taking personal responsibility but reading between the lines I catch your drift they can't be expected not to thus my overall point.

    For all of the people wigging out about a drive through daiquiri or margarita and someone driving with it and possibly (GASP!) drinking some or all of it on the way home, think about this. If the business was open for dining in and the person went inside and drank a drink and then drove home, would there still be this much OUTRAGE? Didn't think so. Get over it and move on to something worthy of your indignation. They won't be drunk. It's not like someone is driving around the block a few times and loading up on margaritas. It's one. Yes, they could be ticketed for open container. They won't be ticketed for drunk driving.

    I own container laws are dumb. Passengers should be able to drink if they want.
