    Hey guys,

    I’ve got a prospective client who bottles his own tequila – two questions.

    1. What’s the best way to do an age check at the beginning of the site?

    2. he really likes this menu system. This is just a cleverly designed slider right? With the navigation for the slider moved into the primary navigation of the site? Yes? I’ve never done a nav system that advanced, any pointers or good how-to’s out there?

    Thanks guys I appreciate your input!

    The age thing always seems pretty trivial. I would just put a box that says ‘enter your age’ and check to make sure it’s at least 21. People are going to lie and put whatever number they want in.

    It’s a standard nav, except for the Tequila section. I wouldn’t really call it a clever slider, but there is certainly some JS at play.

    try for the slider. you can do away with the arrows and controls, and style the rest however you want. very flexible.

    There is no legal requirement for the age thing,
    you do however need to verify before selling
    It baffles me as to why so many many websites do it

    It would be less annoying to have an “I am over the age of 21″ button instead, easier to implement too

    I think it depends on certain legal constraints against ADVERTISING to minors. At least that’s my guess.

    I agree that a simple ‘I am of the necessary legal age’ button would be simpler…but lawyers gotta be lawyers.
