LiquidCourage - Flasks

What's the 911 on the use of flasks? Does anyone use a flask anymore?

  1. I used to but now I do not. I'd now rather jock a pint and be done with it once it's empty rather than have to carry the empty flask. If my companion(s) are female and have large-ish bags then I might be tempted to break out the flask but then I'd have to remember to collect it from them when we part or hunt them down at a later date. No, all set with flasking it.

    1. I think they are popular as groomsmen gifts.

      My husband requested one for Christmas last year, I bought it at Things Engraved. I am still waiting for him to tell me what he wants engraved on it a year later. It does seem sort of a timeless item.

      1. I use a flask for my Anisette. I like to put it in my coffee. You can not store liquor in it very long but I never had that problem.

        1. I use a flask when traveling to bring along a small sample of some of my favorite spirits when packing a full bottle is impractical

              Yes 411, I don't see any flask emergency at the moment do you?

                Not just this minute. But I could see where it could happen.

                  : o) me too..

                  but I stand corrected (can always count on a CH correction).
