Smile Resealing plastic water bottles

I'm in desperate need of advice, and in desperate times, this is where I come for advice.

I'm going to the 2009 Warped Tour on Wednesday, and you're permitted to bring in one factory-sealed water bottle. Clearly, the water must be replaced with a clear liquor because I don't want to pay $15 for watered-down drinks all day long (and I mean ALL day... gates at 11 am, it's all done around sundown).

I was thinking superglue? Anyone have a better idea?

I don't recall from my last Warped Tour (in a different city, too) if they use metal detectors, but a flask's got like 5-6 shots in it anyway. Not enough for an ENTIRE day. I thought about trying my network ID card, but that's probably all unethical and whatnot.

Okay people, solve my problem!

Buy a flask that's disguised to look like a pair of binoculars.

It's funny you mentioned that because binoculars are allowed (so are snack food in clear, plastic, gallon-size bag, (one per person), factory sealed plastic bottle of water (one per person), blankets, small umbrellas, ponchos, binoculars, strollers and low-profile lawn chairs (seat no higher than 9 inches off the ground.)

I earlier searched the internet for flasks and came across the binoculars, but i'd feel like a tool carrying in a set a binoculars to concert for youth.

Cut off your right leg and get yourself a hollowed out wooden prosthetic. Problem solved.

If you're really careful you can remove the bottle cap without breaking the seal. But you have to have mad skills to get that done.

Have you tried this:

To remove the plastic cap w/o breaking the taper-resistant safety ring seal from any plastic bottle-
heat one cup of water in microwave til it boils
hold bottle upside down and insert bottle's top
approx. 1" into hot water for 45 seconds.
remove bottle and immediately and slowly
unscrew bottle cap.

The hot water makes the plastic ring more flexible - and therefore easier to remove.

Evel Knievel used a diamond-tipped walking stick filled with Wild Turkey.
Maybe you could buy one of those babies for use in the mosh pit.

It is that kind of concert, huh???

Can you do this for me? Two 16.9oz plastic bottles of Dasani replaced with a clear rum, preferably. Grey Goose or Absolut Vanilla if you must. I require these two bottles - seals entact -- prior to 9am Wednesday.

Those are LONG gone. I would bring marijuana, but the web site says it's also a prohibited substance.

How about just going the healthy route and drinking only water?

Like water, alcohol contains no calories.

Hey Matty -- Green Day performs two consecutive -- yes, consecutive -- days at MSG! Wanna go?? Celebrate this quickly-approaching birthday of yours by reminiscing of the things you did in your long-past youth?

Good idea. I bet Matthew can suck the top off a water bottle in five seconds flat.

Matt has plenty of impressive talents. I'm sure the Warped Tour, Green Day, Blink or maybe even Incubus will be in Richmond yet this summer. What would YOU do to impress me?

At the Preakness Stakes this year, I enjoyed some smuggled alcohol. It was vodka put inside a water bottle. Old boy kept the lid on, instead drilling a tiny hole on the bottom. He poured out the water, poured in the alcohol, and sealed it up with some sort of glue. Not sure exactly what kind of glue.

You might have a problem in that you are allowed only one bottle of water. See, they could very well uncap your bottle and take a big whiff. Vanilla flavored whatever is gonna give you away. At the Preakness it was different because you could bring in an unlimited amount of water bottles. So you could blend it with "normal" bottles.

I would try to take one normal bottle, and one filled with clear alcohol. I wouldn't spend my money on Grey Goose because you might be getting Cletus from Security drunk that night. Go Stoli and hope the gamble pays off.

May The Force Be With You.

That's beautiful, bucky. I wonder if I can figure out an ingenious enough way to seal the hole in the bottom. I'll be with a friend, so we'll each have one. It would be unfortunate for the hole to begin leaking as I'm carrying it around.. though I suppose I could buy a $10 water bottle and trade out the contents once I'm inside.

I'm impressed with your work, people! Keep it up!!

Two words: Ever Clear.

And for the time you're spending here, you could easily use a printer cartridge syringe to fill a bottle, then superglue over the small hole you made in the cap to fill. (At least that's what a 'friend' told me...)

I prefer to somehow wangle a VIP ticket, where they've got those silly ol private booths with booze, food, and whatever...

FYI - alcohol counts as two fat servings in your diet. And yes .. there are calories.

And .. do I look like your mother? Do your own homework projects!

@Sultan: I actually thought about that. The thing is, I live in Pennsylania (and commute to NYC. Unlike Matt, I am able to leave the island). Everclear is illegal in Pennsylvania, but you can buy it right across the border in New Jersey. Some PA cops found an opened bottle of Everclear in my car during an Incubus concert back in 05 but didn't say anything about it.

Funny story about Everclear -- when the state legislature outlawed it, the state store that sold the most volume of it was the one that was closest to my university! Yay date rape!!

@Hush: Ok, you made me curious so I researched. There's some calories in clear liquor, but I don't see any fat. Now come give me one of them lap dances you're famous for!!! Yeehaw!

it's sad that you're considering doing this.

it'd be even sadder if I hadn't done it myself in the past.... but that was at a place that allowed coolers, so I got a 6-pack of water from wal-mart and filled 3 of em with something else, hoping security wouldn't check.
they didn't.

Here's what I'd do....

put your alcohol in a bottle and strap it to your upper leg, ass cheek or somewhere in that vacinity....wear somewhat baggy pants so it wont be expected...bring a bottle of real water with you....once you're in the gate, toss the real water and grab the real stuff from your undergarmet area....

They're allowing strollers? Well, there you go. Strollers have all sorts of places to hide things. Some even come with nifty built-in hiding places for your wallet and such (I guess for people who jog with strollers). You can also slide the seat pad out in many models -- they're built that way so you can wash the seat pads and put them back in.

Of course, there's the whole matter of acquiring a kid. No you can't borrow mine.

What he said. Or try putting stuff in your shoes. Stash in a couple of places so you have outs.
