Boston Bans the Bottle...

bottle_service.jpg...or bottle service, anyway, and in doing so the city is once again showing the fringes of its puritanical heritage. Boston has some serious identity problems when it comes to booze - for an Irish town a town with a pub on every corner, there are a lot of stupid rules imposed on drinking (we're looking at you, anti-happy hour legislation). We're not necessarily down with bottle service or the VIP image that goes with it, but if people want to look like their favorite fresh-out-of-rehab celebrities and OC rejects, who're we to stop them?

Most people see bottle service with VIP treatment at a hot club in a big city a special treat and a perk of being able to afford spendy bottles of booze. But one Boston official disagrees and is cracking down on the clubs that offer bottle service to their clients. His argument? That the price of the bottle causes patrons to feel they have to down the whole thing before the night is over which, consequently, steps on the toes of the "happy hour" law of a two-drink max per patron.

I do not think that bottle service is the issue. Has more to do with the capacity of one to control it's alcohol consumption. Usually, those who buys a bottle will share it with numerous people. You can avoid buying a bottle and yet drink the equivalent of numerous bottles of individual glasses of alcohol and the problem still persist. Perhaps, the suggestion would be to find a way of limiting people to a certain amount of glass of alcoho. But this is a controversial debate, doesn't it?
