OK. We have a quorum.
Gonna be pricing in store and on-line to get best deal.
Donna may buy in-store or I'll order from U.S. site with shipping to U.S. address that my daughter and boyfriend maintain.
If somebody else wants in, I'll bow out since the Old Bag says she'd rather spend the money on the contents of the glass. If not, I'll still be in.
Donna gonna check store price when the snow clears so we have time.

We have acrylic (stemmed) wine glasses for use on our patio and really like them; however, the only problem is the weight. Since they're lightweight (which is why they look more like the "real thing"), they have a tendency to tip over when half full (I know, who EVER lets their wine glass get half full ... ). Thus, for the Escape, I purchased stemless acrylic from Sur La Table. They look like crystal and, because there's no stem, they don't tip over (yep, we tested them). My husband was horrified at first because he is one of those "don't touch the bowl of the glass" people but he's come around to the fact that he'd rather keep his wine intact rather than look "chic" with the stem.

True, but store price is often higher and website usually charges and remits tax you would pay at shipping address.

The Duraclear are polycarbonate, not acrylic. They don't scratch as easily, feel close to glass in weight, and most important, feel right on your lips. Just several times more expensive.
Old Bag has friendly priced Riedel glasses she got for 70 per cent off, so she can afford to break a few.

For all the discussion, I have to admit that I drink my beer from the can.

We will have to look at the polycarbonate for home as I'm just about ready to throw the ones we have into the Goodwill bag. Thanks for helping me spend even more money!! HA!

Everything in the dish ware and drinking container cabinet seems to be plastic, or something similar, but I draw the line at three things: my coffee mugs, wine glasses, and scotch glasses. The mugs are ceramic, and the others are all glass. We carry two red wine glasses and two white wine glasses (the civilities must be observed!) and, knock on wood, have yet to break one. And to drink a good single malt scotch out of anything but glass just isn't the same.

Sold! You know what's going to happen don't you? I'll pick them up and wished I had bought two. Nah... I'm a bottle baby. I drink beer.
