Reminder To McCarran Holiday Travelers: There's Booze At Baggage

While most news outlets focus this week on the numbers of cars that will be the road, planes in the air and travelers frustrated by delays, we here at VegasChatter take this opportunity to deliver a public service announcement and travel tip reminder. Yes, lots of people travel around the holidays to visit or get away from friends and family. And, a good percentage of those holiday travelers will be swinging through an airport during their travels.

But, there is only one airport where arriving flyers can start the holiday party early or drown their anxiety before moving onto their final destination. Thanks to the nation's first and only baggage claim liquor store, McCarran Airport's Liquor Library, travelers can now fulfill their holiday and non-holiday booze-fueled needs.

Located in Terminal 1 baggage claim between the escalators from Concourses C and D, Liquor Library isn't a duty free shop nor is it a closet-sized stand selling a few speed rack bottles. Nope, it's a 1,400-square-foot, full-service, one-stop shop for alcohol with 350 different brands of beer, wine and booze. There are even wine, scotch, and vodka tastings in-store.

The Library doesn't claim to have discount prices, but its convenience means one less stop to make on the cab ride which gets travelers to their hotel or next destination quicker. Unfortunately, those leaving Las Vegas won't be able to stock up for their trip. Since Liquor Library is located outside security, those pesky TSA agents will confiscate anything not thrown down before the patdown.

For more info, Liquor Library's Facebook page and Twitter account @LiquorLibraryLV are currently the most up-to-date locations for every thirsty McCarran traveler. Liquor Library is open from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily.

Naughty airport librarian just might make next year's suggested Halloween costumes.
