Look, it’s gotta be hard running a restaurant. There’s all kinds of expenses, city codes to keep up on, staff to train, and on top of all that, you gotta make good food at an affordable price.
So how does a restaurant stand out in a way that won’t break the bank?
Simple: use cups that aren’t cups. That’s what the places these Redditors visited opted to do.
Here are just a few of their creations.
15. A lamp
There had better be a genie in there.
Just unscrew this every time you want to drink.. from wewantcups
14. A toilet
How is this so gross and so elegant at the same time?
13. A garden pot
…is that even a cocktail of just a flower with a straw in it?
12. An ornament
Somebody’s gonna cut their mouth on glass, bruh.
I guess there is technically a glass, the drink just isn’t in it. from wewantcups
A snowglobe? A science experiment? I really don’t know.
Just found this sub. Had this crazy thing in Toronto. from wewantcups
10. An IV bag
To prepare you for your epic hangover.

9. A bag in a box
Just…*sigh*…just put it in a cup, man.
I mean, come on man. This is getting out of hand. from wewantcups
8. A dog bowl
Thanks. Very dignified. So glad I chose this place for a first date.
7. A pouch
It’s dangerous to go alone – take this.
A friend ordered a cocktail and got it in a pouch from wewantcups
6. A leg
That’s all. Just…a leg.
5. A pumpkin
This spice trend is getting out of hand.
4. A leather bag
Bet that tastes pretty weird.
3. A shoe
No. Gross. Try again.
2. A plastic rock
What, are the real ones too expensive?
Why using a cup when you can drink from a (plastic) rock? from wewantcups
1. A sauce bowl
I’m gonna dip my chicken tenders in this wine cooler.
Thought this cocktail was a sauce for my food at first from wewantcups
I don’t know what to say to any of that. Just…get cups. They’re cheap. They’re simple. They work. CUPS.
