    Default Alcohol in water bottle

    Possible? Do they tip water bottles out on entry to camping?

    They make you throw out water bottles.

    I thnk the only issue they may have is with glass bottles @ the entrance to camping. It may be worthwhile to buy plastic bottle liquor (which I personally don't like.) I've had glass bottles of booze comphiscated @ Bonnaroo but never Coahcella. Then again better safe than sorry. Roll up all your questionalble shit inside your tent. There not gonna check it there.

    Oh & at the entrance to get into the stages yes they will check caps on water bottles to see if they're sealed.

    yes they will check your bottle on entry so alcohol in a bottle is a no go unless u go as as far as super glueing the edge so it looks sealed but that only worked for the first day last year

    The first year I went to Coachella, 2004, I tried this. I had vodka in a water bottle, rolled up in a towel. The security pulled the towel out of my bag unrolled it and told me I could toss it or drink it before I went in. I tried to chug warm vodka in 100+ heat, obviously a bad idea. I offered some vodka to the security guard sine I couldn't finish it and he pulled out a flask and said "I've got my own". I haven't tried it again since then. Cold beer is much better than warm vodka at Coachella, even if it is $7.

    as far as getting booze into the campgrounds goes... buy a flat of water from costco. shift a few bottles out of the middle without tearing the plastic. fill those with clear booze. put them back in. worked for me.

    Water bottles aren't made with bisphenol A, but it was a worthy attempt at sounding smart.

    I'm not at all concerned with how you think I'm attempting to sound. I am concerned with your sweeping claim that zero water bottles are made with BPA. Many food-contact plastics and reusable plastic bottles do contain BPA, but not all conventional water bottles do.

    Educate yourself: http://www.fda.gov/downloads/NewsEve.../UCM197778.pdf
    This is the FDA's latest acknowledgment of recent research regarding BPA.

    An NIEHS public page on BPA: http://www.niehs.nih.gov/news/media/...ns/sya-bpa.cfm

    These governmental agencies are often the most conservative and the slowest in adopting new research. The fact that they are speaking on BPA is noteworthy.

    Another concern is promoting the reuse of a plastic bottle with the number "1" recycling code on the bottom, common to most water bottle multi-packs (arrowhead, kirkland, etc.). BPA isn't the issue there but a similar endocrine disrupting compound/probable human carcinogen is capable of leaching into the contents. Though it is difficult to speculate on how vodka would perform in such bottles.

    The best part of all is that none of this keeps me from doing it at festivals.

    Liquor is already poison, so why worry about bisphenol A...fill up a tray...I did it last year and I'm still ok...technically...

    That's gnar. I wasn't trying to be a monklish, I just had read that BPA was only found in hard plastics like PVC. I'm sure theres other shit leaching into water bottles. I die a little inside every time I go by the water bottle aisle in costco.

    you're getting off subject here. This thread is about all the clever alcohol smuggling tricks that people think work.

    The sun also gives you cancer, so you should probably just skip Coachella.

    for real. And if you're worried about the plastic from which you're drinking something that you know damages your liver, what the hell are you worried about the plastic for? And loud music damages your ears, so make sure you don't actually listen to anything while you're at the concert.

    Cold beer is not an option as I am 20, and legal in my own country which makes it even more harder and scarier with the fact I might get kicked or denied.

    mistaken, it's not too hard to get a wristband from someone who is 21 when you're inside the festival. as for bringing the liquor in water bottles--worst that's going to happen is they'll make you drink it before you go in or pour it out (and you might get lucky and have someone who doesn't check your bag too thorougly). And I swear last year they made everyone come in with empty water bottles only.

    i just realized my response is for a question if you can bring it into the festival, not the campgrounds, sorry.

    you don't even have to shimmy the water bottles out & back in those 12/24/36 packs. if you have a bunch of water bottles & ice in your cooler, they're not going to waste time checking all the seals. just make sure you can differentiate between the ones that are water & the ones that aren't, just in case.

    one friend asks for bottle of water. other friend passes him a bottle of vodka. full tilt of bottle, mouth open, eyes wider than a deer in the head lights, gulp. not even a flinch, just drank it thinking it was water. one of the most impressive things I've seen at coachella. I would have spit that out so fast.

    Awesome, I'm going with plenty of 21+'ers so shouldn't be a problem, are they just those cheap, easy to peal off bands?
