EDIT: I meant to put AC boardwalk in the title but I guess thatís obvious

Plastic vessels only

Apparently needs to be purchased from a boardwalk establishment and be labeled with the contents and where it was purchased from.

Please correct me if any of this is incorrect.

I don't recall many boardwalk shops selling beer or liquor.

There are several bars and restaurants along the boardwalk and beach, but you always had to keep your drink within a roped off area.

Pretty much all other shops other than food are gone. Thereís a few dumpy tshirt shops that somehow get away with selling bootleg Northface and NFL gear, and a very large and creepy dollar store. And the ripoff Ripleyís museum.

Plastic only is a good move, glass bottles cause problems.

I think its a good move.

I am actually supirsed casinos support this as heavily as they do. I would think that they would prefer people to walk around with a drink while stuck inside a casino. I guess they are hoping it will boost tourism overall.

I visited AC several years ago (2009?), and my recollection of the Boardwalk was that it was populated mainly with fortune tellers and massage parlors.

The casino drinks are so watered down, it's a hardly a secret anymore. People are NOT hanging by the bars during the week much and the waitresses are hurting for tips at most AC casinos.

They must figure, they'll get better value for booze on the boardwalk and then filter in later to gamble and/or eat food. I do know Margaritaville and Land Shark Bar do well enough and people usually walk around with those oversized cups and plop down at the table when they're half done with the drink.

I wonder if any casinos will take issue with patrons bringing in outside booze.

I never thought about that. Itís well understood everywhere you canít bring a 6 pack from home and plop down at the bar and start drinking. But could you do that at a slot machine?

I've seen at the El Cortez and Wild Wild West in Vegas, and its common in Laughlin.

Open containers Is a great idea.

Now if we only had open casinos. 🤯

Part of the open container law in Vegas, and presumably in the new AC law, is you are allowed to bring your open container wherever you go.

But there are still rules such as proving where you bought it, and that it was sold as an open container.

IE, the point it to encourage bar-hopping with drinks in hand.

So, no. You still canít bring a 6 pack to your slot machine.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗

So true.

It's definitely not legal to drink your booze from home (or a gift shop) on Fremont st but people do it all the time. Open containers are legal IF you were sold (or given) the drink by a casino/bar. I imagine the law will be the same in AC

In Laughlin I think it's illegal unless you're on the riverwalk but no one seems to care or enforce it. When I was younger I walked in and out of casinos and even checked into a hotel or sat at a table drinking a beer in an aluminum can there and nobody blinked an eye. Not that I'm encouraging you to do this, you could be cited or arrested.

I don't see why the casinos would take issue with it. They want you a little buzzed to come gamble and if you're going to pay for the booze instead of them providing it for free.
