Have You Ever Rented a Wine Glass?

The street carts in Ljubljana’s Public Market serve up a gourmet feast of Argentinian beef, Slovenian pastries, grilled vegetables, crazy pancakes, and more. Too bad you can’t enjoy them all with a nice glass of wine.

But you can! And not in those goofy plastic cups either. In Ljubljana, one enterprising wine cart rents gorgeous wine glasses! You pay an extra 5 euros for your first glass of wine and get your money back at the end of the evening if you return your glass in one piece. It’s a wonderful service!

Meanwhile, this vendor breaks even on the cost of glasses and ensures you buy at least one glass of his wine before tasting that of his competitors. He picked a traditional short-coming and removed it, creating delighted customers who linger in the moonlight, snacking and sipping until closing.
