If you’re headed to the Rose Bowl and want to prepare for cocktail hour ahead of time, make sure to leave the goods out of your carry-on bags.

You could have a serious party with the amount of booze Transportation Security Administration agents find in people’s bags. Only that’s not what happens – they just pour it out. The TSA posted this photo of two weeks’ worth of hootch people tried taking onto the plane – in just one airport.

Don’t let this sad scenario happen to you:

What you see here isn’t the beginning of the annual office Christmas party, it’s two-week’s worth of alcohol that was left behind at Boston (BOS) checkpoints because they didn’t adhere to our liquid policies. And this picture doesn’t include the beer and wine. Alcohol is destroyed every two weeks. Here are some tips on how to travel with alcohol: … Carry-on Baggage – Travelers may carry as many 3.4 ounce bottles of liquid (mini bottles of liquor are 1.7 ounces) that fit comfortably in one, quart sized, clear plastic, zip-top bag. Comfortable means that the bag will seal without busting at the seams. One bag is permitted per passenger. … Checked Baggage – Any amount of alcohol greater than 3.4 ounces must be packed in checked baggage. Beverages with more than 70% alcohol content (140 proof), including 95% grain alcohol and 150 proof rum, cannot be packed in checked luggage. Travelers may take up to five liters of alcohol with alcohol content between 24% and 70% per person as checked luggage if it’s packaged in a sealable bottle or flask. Alcoholic beverages with less than 24% alcohol content are not subject to hazardous materials regulations.
