[Noisebridge-discuss] Noisebridge Vending Machine Beverage Preferences Poll

It's a wonderful legal technicality... We're not "selling alcoholic 
beverages".  Instead, the vending machine gives a free drink in exchange 
for a one dollar donation to Noisebridge, a registered 501(c)(3) 
non-profit organization.

There's no law against giving away free alcohol.  Except to minors.  But 
any minors at Noisebridge are accompanied by adults, who are legally 
responsible for their minor children in their presence.

So it's all good.
