French Restaurant Found a Tax Loophole by Serving Alcohol in Baby Bottles

That's not grape juice ... that's wine served in baby bottles in a restaurant called Le Refuge des Fondues in Paris, France.

Ashley Thompson of Intelligent Travel blog tells us why:

Disgruntled servers and fondue restaurants are all over Paris, we know, but this is the only place that offers up some of the lowest-end table wine served in baby bottles. It seems that Le Refuge des Fondues found a clever little shortcut to getting around the mandated tax Parisian restaurants face when serving wine out of the slightly more traditional stemmed glass.

There's an added benefit:

You know how drinking any sort of alcoholic beverage from a straw sometimes seems to hit you much harder? That same logic applies to drinking wine from a nipple.

I've eaten there. You can write on the walls- patrons are encouraged to do so- and each bottle contains about 500ml of wine. It's cheap, it's good food, and it's a blast.

Did I mention you have to climb over the table to get a seat?

This is how I used to take Jack Daniels into a theater. No one ever questions a baby bottle. Forget about the fact that I didn't have a baby. I remember taking whiskey to see Predator 2. Believe me, it made the experience totally more enjoyable.
