Is it illegal, inappropriate or neither to drink alcohol in public?

Public places like the park, library, beach, mall, or government buildings.

    It depends what country you are in. It is perfectly acceptable in Europe, but illegal in North America.

    Normally it is illegal.

    That is different from state to state and from city to city within a state.

    I am not sure NOW, but as recent as 20 years ago it was.

    Depends on the local laws.  There is no one answer that applies to all of those locations.  .

    It depends where and when. In some public places, it's legal. In some public places, it's not. In some public places, it's appropriate. In some public places, it's not. In some public places it's legal and/or appropriate at certain times or on certain dates but illegal and/or inappropriate at other certain times or other certain dates.

    Example: In New Orleans, the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday, you can drink in the streets anywhere and everywhere to your hearts content, carrying around big containers of beer or whatever kind of booze you like. Cops are standing around to keep the peace, but none of them will say "boo" even if at 11:59pm you down a beer bong six inches from their face. The second the clock strikes midnight and it becomes Ash Wednesday, though, the cuffs come out, so you do that same thing two minutes later at 12:01am, you're going to spend the next several days on New Orleans' jail barge in middle of the Mississippi.
