comment What kind of ID does the US accept when visiting bars or drinking age events?
It's frustrating as you'd rather not take your passport out to town... I've always wondered about this, because I've always carried my passport on my person everywhere when in a foreign country. For one, I keep it on my person so that it would be very difficult to pickpocket (whereas I have had my luggage stolen when I was out and about in town), and second, I want a piece of ID that will suffice if I am asked for it by the authorities. I figure there will be less red tape if I'm in a situation where I need ID and I present my passport, versus another foreign ID.
