    I live in Iowa. And you can run a bar tab in Iowa. The only law on tabs that I know of. Is you can not run a bar tab for someone over night. You must pay before you leave the bar.

    Ah, there is still a liquor law in Indiana that a man can sit at the bar with his dog but not a female. In Michigan an owner isn't supposed to converse with any patrons.

    Las Vegas allows you to walk around with alcohol but you can't get in a cab with an open container.

    In old town Toronto in the 50's when most of the population was recently from Britain - My grandfather had to leave the bar at 5:00 to go home to have supper - it was the law to close bars from 5:00 to 7:00.

    @Cheyannboyergmailcom827817984 In historic Savannah, GA you CAN walk around with alcohol as long as it's in a plastic cup. You can't do that anywhere else in GA but you can in Savannah.

    I'm a Southerner, proud of it, and these and other equally strange laws are all around: used to be dry in Bourbon County Kentucky and wet in Christian County. Hope that's changed. Haven't been home in a few years.

    The Georgia one is not true. I was born, raised and have been a bartender here for 15 years. You cannot walk around with booze. You will get a hefty fine!
