A brand new Tennessee legislation (which, thoughts you, is already within the works of being weakened) has made it unlawful for open-air automobiles like occasion buses to permit their riders to deliver or be offered alcoholic drinks. That is an comprehensible blow to occasion bus firms’ companies, contemplating {that a} main promoting level of their mannequin is that they’re what would occur if Ms. Frizzle determined to present adults excursions of the impression of poison on their very own livers. I do assume that the efficacy of this legislation — for so long as it lasts — will rely on the bulwarks baked in to guard towards intelligent authorized interpretations. For instance, would a topless occasion bus fastened with a mesh overlaying nonetheless rely as an open automobile? If not, I count on plenty of drunk Tennesseans to marvel at how scorching the moon is in fishnets.

An trustworthy query to our readers: has anybody ever truly gone on a celebration bus, open or in any other case, of their very own volition? It all the time struck me as a kind of issues you end up on since you’re the pal of a woman whose greatest pal determined to hire a celebration bus, and you’ll’t simply immediately ask the lady’s greatest pal why they determined to hire this cursed four-wheel tube with blown-out audio system as a result of they (and their soon-to-be husband) have already blacked out after a couple of too many Bud Lights. I could or might not nonetheless want remedy.

Now I’ll admit occasion buses may make sense logistically because the ferryman to and from different bars that decrease drunk driving, however that’s the one fig leaf I’ll be extending. Past that, my intestine response to a bunch of individuals consuming brazenly in a automobile that’s not a convertible — and by this I imply these folks using on these group bicycle-with-table contraptions — is why do you have to be that drunk and loud in visitors? Do you actually discover pleasure in blasting Flo Rida’s biggest hits in public? In 2021?
