Can we drink while on board?
We are in talks with the city currently on getting the laws amended so passengers can drink. There is also a bill at the state level that is trying to make it legal. However at the current time we do not have approval to allow passengers to consume alcohol. Once we do get approval it will be a BYOB situation. No Glass bottles, there is plenty of room; you could easily put 3 or 4 coolers on board.
