You think you’re sooo slick don’t ya? 😉

Bringing that shooter, that flask, into the bar, and sneaking a mixed drink under the table.

Ok let’s be honest, who here hasn’t attempted it? Or at least been with someone who has?

It’s almost like an early-20s right of passage when you’re out at a bar, and your paycheck is not all grown up yet.

It’s always a risk, everyone knows that.

But one bar owner from New Jersey lets everyone in on just how much of a risk it is, from the bar’s point of view.

He sets up his position of authority off the bat, adding immediate credibility,

“I own 7 bars, and operate 5 in Hoboken, NJ, across the river from New York City. Our bartenders are supposed to pay attention to anybody who orders just soda water, or diet coke.”

They’re watching youuuuuuu.

He continues,

“A crowded bar, 12:30 at night and you’re all drinking diet Coke, that’s pretty suspicious. So we’re gonna watch you, and we’re probably going to have a bouncer near the bar.”

Replying to @STLBlues This is how we catch people as bar owners when they bring in flasks into the bar. #patlight #hobokennj #hoboken #nycfood #restaurant #restaurantowner #jerseycitynj #collegebar

While others noted how hard it is just to order a dang drink in the first place.
