In Illinois, open liquor is considered 5 unopened cans in what once was a 
6-pack. It's not enough to have the lid on -- if you drive and plan to 
enjoy some refreshment, grab a cooler, small ice chest, whatever, and stick 
the refreshment in the trunk of the vehicle where passengers and driver can 
not access it while driving.
