Fine, We’ll Just Build Our Own Island And Drink There

A group of crafty New Zealanders found a clever way to get around local laws that discourage public drinking on New Year’s Eve by building an island out of sand in offshore waters. The revelers were photographed on Sunday afternoon drinking at a picnic table in the Tairua estuary off the island nation’s Coromandel Peninsula. The BBC reports that the friends constructed the island during low tide in “international waters” that are seemingly exempt from local liquor bans. In any case, authorities didn’t seem to mind the stunt.

“That’s creative thinking,” local police commander inspector John Kelly toldĀ Stuff. “If I had known [about it] I probably would have joined them.”
