walking down the street while drinking?

It just dawned on me that I don't think I have seen a picture of anyone walking down the street with a beer in their hand. Can you do that?

Never had an issue, though for the most part we finish up before we move on.

I second missing Cabo. My wife said the other day she wants to open a bar or something there when she retires hehe. I can't complain about that!

Yes most every establishment will give you a to go cup, that whole fashion statement was made popular by a person called Bills Gal for you historian buffs.

I've walked around with a beer or drink from bar to bar. I've stood right beside a policeman with a beer and he just noded and smiled at me!...As I walked away he shot me in the leg though! LOL Just kidding!!! :)

Here's the elusive picture, my avatar was taken on the marina boulevard.

I quite often walk around with a beer, never been an issue.

My understanding is that it is illegal, but just not enforced particularly in the tourist areas. That would mean you wouldn't be bothered by the police if just walking around with a drink, but get out of control with the same drink and they have the reason to arrest you.

It is illegal but not enforced.If you are fall down drunk and being an a$$ you might just find yourself in trouble.Many places will give you a to-go cup.I do think that carrying a bottle of beer is frowned upon.

Exactly...while technically verbotten, it's allowed, but don't flaunt it, or act like an idiot and you'll be fine.
