Go-Cups are most definitely an only-in-New-Orleans phenomenon; in no other city will they no what you're talking about when you ask for one... Also, other cities apparently don't have drive-thru daquiri shops?? :dunno:

It's not legal here to do the "go-cup" thing. Otherwise the closest thing we have here is called a "set-up" cup.

This coming from the state that brought the drive thru beer barns to the world.......

Two bottles of Newcastle tonight, and a couple slices of king cake.
They go surprisingly well together.

Newcastle goes good with everything. when I was younger we would have keg parties. we would use those big red plastic dixie cups so we called it getting a dixie. after three or four dixies you just drink off the keg hose.

Lafayette has both. I would imagine go-cups are a New Orleans invention, but Lafayette only recently banned glass bottles outside so we're just making the switch.

partier: yo, who's in the big ugly van pulling up?
host: not who, what. that's the keg man

I drank some sure enough hobo beer tonight. Something called "Steel Reserve" that my buddy had. Why call it hobo beer? Cuz it cost barely over a buck for a 40, tastes like liquid poo, but will get you drunk QUICK. I had one 40 and had a little buzz like I normally get from 8-10 beers.

Three go-cups of Vendange Chardonnet and two Restorations.

Buzzed, but can still work tomorrow.

Do other cities call 'em go-cups? Cuz in Texas, people looked at me crazy-like.
After almost getting arrested twice, I just put what ever drink I have in my back pocket and walk out.

Alexandria has both, i ued to bring my beer\drink i was drininking when i walked in the bar with me - so we had "go cups" and "in cups"

the daiquiri places here also serve mixed drinks via the drive thru

i know in other places ive been, including NY city, DFW etc they stop selling hard liquor at midnight other than in a bar- and they only sell hard liquor in state run liquor stores - where as in some places in Louisiana you can go into a 7-11 or grocery store at 1:45 am and buy fifth Alexandria being one of them, all night long in some cities.

it also used to be the law here that you could go into a bar if you are under 21 but at least 18, and it was legal for them to sell you drinks but illegal for you to buy it - so if you get drunk in a bar and under 21 it was your fault, not the bar for serving you
