Hands-free device


Wine is near to my heart, but not so much so that I would wear this wine glass holder necklace.  Its producers claim it gives you the freedom to snack and socialize while keeping your hands free, but maybe they should have included a straw.  You’d still have to use a hand to get the glass to your mouth, right?  Then what becomes of your plate of snacks or your hand gestures? 

Some have pointed out that it would prevent you from losing your wine at a crowded party.  Folks I know seem to have no trouble keeping an eye on their glass of wine without having it attached to them. 

It’s definitely a conversation starter, but maybe one where you have to explain why you’re a dork.

  1. In the forgettable but yet tolerable movie Ed TV, matthew mcconaughey’s character ED, wears a cozie on a lanyard that looks a lot like this bad idea.

    This would go great with my snuggie! Really, how labor intensive is holding glass of wine?

    I actually grew a giant belly for this same purpose. Also when I drop popcorn on myself it doesn’t fall all the way to the floor.

    Why not a wine hat with one bottle on each side?

    So great! Unfortunately this would equal a klutz disaster on my part –

    I admit to experimenting with one of these at the NY Food and Wine Festival Grand Tasting. Not only did wine drip all over my shirt, but my glass fell out of the holder and shattered. Thumbs down.
