Reasonable discourse

Dan from Boerum Hill says:
I believe it's illegal to have patrons open alcohol containers themselves.

Mike from Williamsburg says:
This is the most informative bartoon I can remember.

Dan -
I think you might be right, if a place has a liquor license.

Other than trying to recoup lost revenue, this is part of the impetus behind a "corking fee" when folks bring their own bottle of wine. The restaurant (with a liquor license) has to control the dispensing of alcohol.

Not opening the can sold by the bar is probably only technically in violation of this, since they are still in between the patron and the alcohol... it is, however, bad form.

Not to mention, Tecate shouldn't be more than $3.

John Wasserman from Windsor Terrace says:
Hi Bill, I'm John Wasserman. I hope you don't mind, but I do indeed have a suggestion. I think it's possible that you may have a drinking problem. In your article, you tell us that "this happened 3 times". Now, I don't want to start trouble here, but I'm willing to bet that these 3 times were all in the same day. Here is my suggestion: Perhaps, for a few weeks, you can sit in a new Starbucks, or a new Dunking Donuts and doodle us what the inside of that looks like. Unfortunately, you will have to continue to open your own beverages, but maybe your temper will be better. Thank you in advance for pardoning my saying so.

seems like a rude place. Notice how many men are wearing hats indoors? I was taught that gentlemen took their hats off indoors. Maybe they are cold?

Too bad your dad took of his jimmy hat.

Nice to see that Bill Roundy can be critical once in a while.

Don Wiss from Park Slope says:
I'm too old to hang out in bars, but do I look forward to his cartoon. It is the first thing I read.

He does need to be critical at times. If every place is so perfect he loses his credibility.

BunnynSunny from Clinton Hill says:
This is the reason Bunny and I don't go out to bars.

Joey from Clinton Hills says:
What do you think would be the appropriate tip for a can of Tecate handed to you unopened at a bar? Is it enough to just say "thanks bro!"?
