Discretely wet means no original containers (i.e. I drive by in my car and I can't
tell what is being consumed) not an implied invitation to break rules.

As a side note.  One of my Squires is from Greece and is getting married this
weekend and there is supposed to be a huge open (i.e. free) bar at this church.  So
I guess if you found a Greek Orthodox church you would be set.  Besides, I've seen
some of those Greek boys drink.
