I love Gencon, but I hate getting there. Layovers, cramped seats, screaming babies and the boorish passenger in the next seat all conspire to crush my will to game. But I discovered a little secret that makes it all just a little more bearable.
Did you know you can bring your own booze on a plane? Yes. It’s true. TSA regulations state that you can bring liquids in containers smaller than 3.4 ounces or 100ml as long as they fit in a 1 quart ziplock baggie with your other toiletries. Luckily, mini bottles of booze are 50ml. Cram as many as you can in your ziplock bag. Even better, most airlines offer free mixers and cups of ice. Now I’m not saying this is entirely legal. In fact, don’t tell me if you know. Ignorance immunizes me from prosecution. That’s a legal thing right? Happy travels!
