Stop spending your hard-earned money on overpriced festival drinks—and start hiding them in tampon flasks.
Once upon a Coachella in 2009, I lined my entire bra with joints to pass through security incognito. Whether or not security knew (or even cared), I’ll never know. But the experience—the thrill—of successfully sneaking booze/pot/drugs into a show is a classic rite of passage, and the beginning of a stashing skill set that most festival-goers will fine-tune from their teen years through their twenties, until they feel like a human Transformer equipped with the best smokes, space cakes, and nutcrackers.
The definitive MUNCHIES guide to sneaking alcohol into musical festivals suggests such DIY gems as injecting your grapes with wine and refilling empty fruit pouches with your beverage of choice, while Redditors suggest you “hide your booze in a baguette [and] hide your drugs in your food,” or wear Ziploc bags to hide your Henny. There are also some beautiful, elevated flasks out there that we’d love to add to our bar cart. But our goal in this instance (a.k.a. bringing a fifth of Mellow Corn into Medieval Times) isn’t to be swanky—it’s to be sneaky. That’s why we’ve made a short list of the best stash jars and drink concealers you can invest in for a summer of (hypothetical) public drinking and smoking, whether you’re about to hit the festival circuit or just want to sip on the beach in peace.
We’ve vetted the best, most creative stash containers that have great reviews (from actual people) on their convincing appearance, leak-proof quality, and ability to conceal odors. Bottoms up!
