Thank you, I did a lot of searches and never saw those, so maybe I made a mistake and only saw the lower priced and skinnier ones. Dang... See what trouble I get into when I stay sober? Cheers!

Duke’s in Huntington Beach, California served my wife a Mojito with a paper straw that had the feel of medium cardboard. The Mojito outlasted the straw. The bamboo looking paper straws that we use at home are good for one drink.
Cheers

Last week's Imbibe post RIP, Plastic Drinking Straw still makes me wonder if news of the plastic straw's death has been greatly exaggerated.

I was just looking at The Essential Bartender's Guide by Robert Hess and saw this in the section explaining cobblers:



So looks like we're going back to the future with hay straws.

Oh, and I rediscovered an old thread that Sven started about straw diameters, which made me wonder how the original (and now, revived) rye/hay straws' diameters compared to that of current narrow cocktail straws/stirrers (which are my preference). Luckily, it looks like Chip and Andy addressed it already, too.
