Are there bars that still practice that? What happens if everyone brought their own liquor? That's where the money's at, in drinks.

I wonder if that would have been in a dry county. They still existed decades ago when Addie was living in Texas. I think they're pretty rare now.

Not everyone drinks hard liquor. Most of the shimpers drank only beer.
