One of the worst things about festivals, if not the worst thing, is the absurd price of alcohol. You’re paying for one crappy beer for the price of a six pack at a store or watered down liquor that will probably hydrate you more than it will intoxicate you.
If you’re not into spending all that money, you do have a couple of options. The first is obviously not drinking, which ain’t gonna happen. The other, much more intriguing option, is sneaking your own alcohol into the venue (not that I’m promoting anything morally illicit wink wink). The problem with this is that it’s usually not a lot of fun, oftentimes forcing you to resort to uncomfortable practices of smuggling alcohol in by shoving it down your pants or taping it to your body.
However, from struggle comes genius, as was made evident by one dude who managed to seamlessly sneak a whole lot of vodka into Electric Zoo. Three weeks before the festival, he filled up a Nalgene bottle with vodka, went to wear the festival would take place, picked a spot on the ground, buried his treasure, and marked wear it was on a map. He even provided us with pictures of the process so we could follow suit (not that we ever would wink wink).
And of course, we got to see his efforts pay off.
This is the face of a true innovator, a man of the people. What a guy.
